[feature suggestion - file properties on mouse hover ?]
« on: February 10, 2008, 05:27:35 AM »
How about popping up a tooltip with file properties when you hover an icon in the results list?

I open music files using FARR and it would be helpful to see bitrate and other information before playing a song.

i was considering adding the ability for plugins to display info about a selected file (could be used for image previews, mp3 info,etc). But it's going to have to wait for a little bit since other things have precedence first, and because of one simple fact that you can already call up the windows file properties dialogs pretty quickly.  i forget if there is already a hotkey for this but if not i can add a quick one.
