    I like the look of your new list view coming in 1.5.3 but please can you have the option of using smaller icons for files. I’d say by 50%.

    Another view which only shows the filenames + icon and you don’t need to show what other tabbles the file is associated with would be nice. Really looking for a view that equals Small Icons/List/Details view. I’m finding it quite hard to navigate around files in Tabbles when the icons are using up so much screen space.

    Thanks a lot for the input everyone! 🙂
    I had a brief chat with Maurizio about the topic – I’m summarizing the outcome:

    It seems to us that you’re asking for a super-compact view mode. The view mode we’re working on right now (single column view) is meant to help the people who have files with long names as JFW has pointed out. In reality it’s not the first time we hear we’re aware of a lot of people who need to categorize documents/publications/PDF who typically have very long names.

    A more compact single column view (with a smaller icon and basically nothing else than the filename) would also be relatively easy to implement, but the fact is that what we’re working on right will (hopefully) be ok for most people… so would you please give it a try for a few days and then let us know? :geek: 😉 🙂

    The "column view" is a different story: that would take longer to implement, will need more testing and we doubt that it can do a lot more than what we’re working on right now – we know that you’re use to it but we believe that there is not much apart from abitude that is tying you to this view… :ugeek:

    Summarizing: please give our upcoming compact view a chance and then give us some more feedback later on, ok?

    Sounds fine to me 🙂

    My main problem is not really the long filenames even though i do have them but it’s the file icons are very big. I haven’t checked the dimension but are they 64×64? Even reducing them to 48×48 would help as at the moment when i use Tabbles i feel like i’m working in child mode.
