I agree. With applauding for the many improvements, but also with
the criticism on the thumbnails size.

- I see in 4.2.0 beta there are 10 thumbnails on one line. And
room for 4 to 5 lines. Those thumbnails are a bit small.

- In 4.2.0 RC1 there are 4 thumbnails on one line and only two
lines visible. Really way too large.

Something as 7 to 8 thumbnails on one line would be best, IMO.

Keep in mind that: * The number of thumbnails per line depends on
the window size. * This window will usually be full-screen, given
that it transforms into modules. * At smaller sizes, the thumbnails
are much harder to make out.

Yes, I did consider all those.

Take a look at Stuart's screenshot:
The presentations are easy to make out, but the documents can be
hard to make out, even at this size.

That looks as a reasonable compromise between what I see in beta2 and rc1.

The thumbnails are there to be able to set apart documents at a glance,
there's some need to be able to make out the basics, though it's true
with documents, you'll mostly be looking at the layout and perhaps the

My response obviously was triggered by using rc1 after beta2 :)
Larger is easer to read, of course. But at the size of rc1 I can almost
edit them :) (1366x768 usually full screen) But finding recent document
that are below #8 (number of recent documents counts to 25..) is a pita ;)

All these things said (talking about my recent messages, not just this
one), though, I wouldn't mind it if the previews were limited to 180x180
instead of the current 256x256.

Sounds interesting!
Is the screenshot above 180X180?

No, I think it's still 256x256, just on a large monitor.

Was the size in beta2 90x90 or so ?

It was a smaller than 180x180, but I don't remember the exact size.

thanks for your response!
