Hiding the title bar of preview pane

Post by nikov »

Hi,
Previously in Everything 1.4, there used to be no title bar for preview pane.
But from Everything 1.5, preview pane has title bar; which is taking up important vertical space of preview pane.
Is there an option to hide the title bar of preview pane?
Thanks.

I will add an option to disable the pane title bar.

Thank you for the suggestion.

What is the benefit of hiding this ?
Loosing the place where the X is located.

I am assuming to have more space for the preview handler.

The preview pane can be closed with View -> Preview (Alt + P) so the X button is not entirely necessary and is just wasted space for some users.
However, you would lose the ability to drag-move the preview pane to the left, or above/below another pane.

Isn't a SearchBox planned in this bar? (to search and highlight text in Preview pane)

possibly with my own text preview handler.

The search box would be inside the pane.

What about an auto-hide feature with a pin button?

I am one that likes as much screen estate as possible too, but I have to say that adding the Preview header makes it much, much better looking, compared to version 1.4. And I don't mind missing those few pixels in this case.

(would it be possible that changing the result list header font would also change the font for the Preview header, to keep the nice layout? )

Do you mean to auto hide the whole pane or just the title?
I have on my TODO list to add pinning support for the whole pane.
An undock feature is also planned.


Maybe a right click -> Hide Title menu item would be OK.

Yes! I had this on my TODO list.
There will be an option to customize the font and colors for "panes" in the next alpha update.

just the title. pop-up in mouse hover the top border. I think it's a solution for all needs. Am I wrong?

and then how to restore for drag-move?!

I will consider a popup/overlay on mouse hover.
Thanks for the suggestion.

I am use to pinning/unpinning the entire pane in Visual Studio.


and then how to restore for drag-move?!
Right click on any toolbar or sidebar frame.



Everything 1.5.0.1291a adds a pane_title ini setting.

To disable the pane title bar:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /pane_title=0
  • If successful, pane_title=0 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.


Everything 1.5.0.1291a adds a pane_title_high ini setting.

To set a custom pane title bar height:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /pane_title_high=22
  • If successful, pane_title_high=22 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
    where 22 is the pane title bar height in pixels.


Everything 1.5.0.1291a also adds font and color customization for the pane item under Tools -> Options -> Fonts and colors -> Item -> Pane
