Image support and Forte Agent

Postby cavemann » Fri Oct 28, 2011 5:45 pm

The only thing stopping me from ditching Forte Agent is the way newsbin does image support.

In agent you can double click an image directly from the post in the newsgroup folder which is really handy as it allows you to keep track of which images are in which posts.
This is really usefull in newsgroups where large binaries are preceded by an image showing a snapshot of what's in the main post.

In newsbin the thumbnails seem to be detached from the post in the newsgroup making it a pain to associate an image to it's location in the list of messages.
The file list does allow double-clicking on the file to open the image, but still doesn't show any association with the post that it came from.
If only the double-click functionality could work from the actual post itself, then in my oppinion newsbin would be perfect...

Please can you forward this as a feature request to the developers.

Thanks :-)

So, you just want to be able to download and display an image from the post list?

Exactly!

It doesn't have to be double-click, a right-click menu option or key combination would be fine.

Thanks
