Hover Data Preview (Beta)
This is the new major feature to MultiCommander in this release.

This is a new type over hover tips (tooltip) when hovering over files. This hover tooltip can show lots more information.
But it can also be annoying if you do not need it. But when you need it you do not want to dig down in settings to enable it.
So Hover Data Preview tips are enabled/disabled using Ctrl+H, or press the new talk-bubble icon on the toolbar
(the talk bubble icon will turn green when enabled).

When enabled and when you hover over files you will get more information.
If you hover over an images and videos it will show the thumbnail. For text files it will show the first couple of line in the file.
For .exe file it will show version and other information. and so on.

Any file property that MultiCommander support can be shown in the Hover Data Preview tips.

What the Hover Data Preview tips are showing are customizable. However right now there is no UI for it.
But if you are brave you can try to edit the DataPreviewsTemplates.xml in config (copy it to your user config folder first) else you loose your changes when multicommander is updated.

Features missing from Hover Data Preview tips that are planned are
* Able to Zoom thumbnail that are show with mouse wheel ( probably need to hold shift and scroll to zoom )
* Able to show zip information for zip files. And what some of the zip inside the zip is
* When hovering over folder show the first folders/files in the folders
* Show Windows Preview in the Hover Data Preview tip. This will hook into the Preview Handler in Windows 10/11 and depending on what you have installed, you get more information on special files.

In the future some more extended features for the Hover Data preview is planed.

Please let me know if you fell that some information is missing from the Hover data preview tips.
Like when hovering for file type X it should show Y.

Thanks for the new features Matthias. ;)

The enhanced hover tooltip looks good.  Shows a lot of blank space for my pdf's (see attached) but nice preview on jpgs.

See attached - I'm running in Dark mode & I noticed that the tabs - with custom colours now get blacked out randomly.... bug or not?

Yes pdf not supported yet.  It been prepared, it will be supported by Windows Preview handler api so if a preview handler for pdf is installed. (I think windows 10+ have that as default, not sure) it will be able to show pdf.

I forgot to disable the PDF preparation I done in the DataPreviewTemplates.xml file, before pushing a beta release

Hmm not see anything with that. what does it look like?

Thanks for the reply Mathias.

In the screen shot you can see some tabs that are coloured & some are black, they should all be coloured.
They do show colour when the mouse is hovering & on click but return to black one mouse moves away.

PDFs - I'm using W10, & I guessed there should be a preview but the tooltip is pretty big for all that blank space so I thought I better mention it. :)
