A while back, Jonas had a nice idea to deal with an annoyance when opening a selection of files:
If you open a selection of files you often end up with one window for every file. There are a few cases, where it's preferrable to have all in one window and an option to "ungroup" those files into multiple windows. I suggest a menu item "Ungroup files - ALT+U". It may be prudent to have the operation abortable (with "ESC"?) in case of an accidental ungrouping (think of opening 50 RAW images...).
Here are the apps I (or Jonas in his post) can think of:
- Get Info panel: normally show one summary panel for all selected files. (while at it, have ALT+Q close all open info panels...)
- FileType Add-On: already combines multiple files in one panel. ALT+U could seperate those into several panels by filetype if they are not all the same.
- Showimage: normally put all selected files into a slideshow.
- MediaPlayer: normally put all selected files into a playlist.
- ...are there more?
