Description fredrik.haegg 2006-04-20 09:15:39 UTC
In any office-application: Open the Gallery. 
Choose a Gallery-picture/object of some kind. 
When choosing to preview the picture (via context-menu or double-click), 
the two buttons "Icon-View" and "List-View" gets deactivated. 

Expected behaviour: that they remains active, so the user can switch 
back to the respective view also when being in the Preview-mode.

Matthias, please make an UX decision on this.

Hi Kai,
from my point of view it is ok to disable the buttons. But...

The real question is how do I get out of the preview mode? 
Why do I have to double click the sample?
Why does a single click not simple change the mode back to where I came from?
(It has do listen to the mouse up event -- drag&drop need to remain possible)

If this can be changed then we do not need the discussion on the 2 view mode

Comment 3 fredrik.haegg 2006-05-11 14:04:18 UTC
Maybe it would be even more logical with another button?  - "Preview"

That way the user clearly sees what the options are, and what currently is active.

Would like a real target for this issue...

Reassigning this issue. I would very much like to see the buttons still active
when being in "Preview"-mode. I would also like to see a "Preview"-button next
to them. 
That way all three possible views are clearly indicated. The user both sees the
options, and the currently active view.
