Built in viewer

A built in viewer handling many different file types including pdf, jpg, avi etc would be really good - FreeCommander has this  ;)

If you view a picture it will be open by the picture viewer.. however pdf and video are not supported, mostly because I have not had the to investigate if some free 3d party libraries that can be used (Because there is no way I get the time to write it myself.). It might be added if I get the time.

One way might be to look at the methods (or even use directly) Universal Viewer.

Custom External Viewers and Editors for different filetypes can be configured under Configuration > File Type Setup

Sorry, I didn't mean external viewers - I meant an internal viewer like the Quick View Panel you get with other commander clones such as Total Commander and FreeCommander which usually toggle with the Ctrl-Q key stroke.

Yup, that is exactly what I meant.  Great to hear it's on the to do list!
