MultiData Viewer (F1): Single Instance window option
« on: August 14, 2019, 00:11:21 »
Please add option to MC viewer to re-use the same window instance when viewing multiple text files.  Currently, each time the viewer is activated, it spawns another new window. While sometimes it's useful to view and compare the contents of 2 files side-by-side, I'd like the option to control spawning multiple windows and re-use the same window.

Suggest calling the option something like:
[ x ] Open viewer window using a single instance

Thanks

I have something planed. But it is tricky to get right in a user friendly way

But if you select multiple files at once before viewing-. then they are queue and you swap between them Ctrl+PageUp/Dn

Thanks for your consideration, Mathias. 
While we're talking about MultiDataViewer, would you consider adding an icon called WRAP that toggles wordwrap on/off for text files?  You already have icons for stripes and lines, but not wordwrap.  Just a thought....


BTW did you receive my $25 contribution to MC I made on July 25th via paypal?  I've emailed you a couple times to confirm, but did not see a reply. I just wanted to be acknowledged as a contributor in my profile for this fine utility that I use daily.  Please let me know


Cheers! Thank you

Yes.Thank a lot. 
I did mail replay to the mail. Strange.
I had some email issue when outgoing mail a while ago. maybe it was during that time.
