Display plugin name in quick view panel

Post by *funkymonk »

Hi There,

When using Ctrl-Q for quick view in the opposite panel, the file name is displayed right above the quick view area.
It would be great to see the active plugin name as well.

What do you think?

I suspect you don't understand the request. Lister in some cases already displays info about plugin in its title bar. The same info should be available in Quick View.

What should I not understand on this request ?
For me Lister always shows the plugin in title bar when invoked by f3
and never in QuickView
Poster wants to see it in QuickView to.

I support that. Sometimes I install a plugin and I'm not sure what it should look like, so sometimes I don't even know if it is working properly. Also, sometimes another plugin is taking precedence and I can't tell which one is it.

Hello there,

I was asking for a reason that was already explained by pplupo (thank you):
Sometimes there is more than one lister plugin for a file format -- and I would like to know which one is currently in use.

Apart from that: In some cases I am surprised that there is a lister plugin installed for a certain file. That happens, e.g., if the file extension is non-standard for the file type (like .xyz for a jpg). In such cases, lister still shows it. That's great! However: Which plugin is it?

Yes, I know, I could use F3 for such cases. Still: When processing large file lists, this is cumbersome.
Since the information is shown by Lister, why not by QuickView?

I hope I could clarify my request.

Speak for yourself, please. It would be useful for many users - old and new, beginners and masters. Everyone may overlook some things.

Please don't try to correct my wording, nothing is wrong here.
