Request: "Quick view here" and "Quick view opposite"

Most of the time I like to display Quickview inside the current file panel, like so:

But on an ad hoc basis, it is sometimes preferable to show the Quick view in the opposite panel. For one file it seems a bit too much effort to change the Settings (see above image), and then change them back.

My request is for two new/additional View menu items/toolbar buttons:
  • 1. View>Quick view panel here
    Show the QV in the current file panel

    2. View>Quick view panel opposite (show the QV in the opposite panel)
    Show the QV in the opposite file panel
Selecting the current menu command View>Quickview panel would continue to show the QV according to the Settings.

It would be best if the QV splitter settings could be saved/restored for EACH of the above options.

Thanks for listening and thanks making for such a flexible file manager!

It is not enough one additional command: Quick view panel opposite to current settings for QV?
Ctrl+Q QV as in settings
Ctrl+Shift+Q QV in the opposite panel to Ctrl+Q.

That makes good sense. The simpler the better! (I was hoping for a button, though. 8) )

Marek: Thank you for listening AND responding to us. FreeCommander is really shaping up nicely!

The flexibility of the FreeCommander UI is a very great advantage. It doesn't force users into any one particular way of working, but allows for individual tastes and working methods.

The BEST way to make good software, IMO. :D
