           Summary: light-table useability, possible improvements
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Debian stable
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: Light Table
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: arnd.baecker web de

Version:           0.9.3 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Debian stable Packages

While going through a couple of thousands images using
the light-table, I collected a couple of issues
which could be improved:

1.) When activating the 100% view  via CTRL-SHIFT-0
    it should always be centered (both horizontally and vertically,
    the vertical centering does not seem to work)

2.) To activate the 100% zoom, the keyboard short-cut
    CTRL-SHIFT-0 requires two hands (at least the way I type ;-).
    I.e. one has to leave the mouse.
    To get out of the 100%  CTRL-ALT-E (fit-window) is used, which is also
    not easy to type.

    Suggestion: use  z (or Z) (as eg. in gqview) as single letter toggle
    for 100% zoom/fit to window.

3.) Using (e.g) SHIFT-Click to 100% zoom to a specific point would be useful.

4.) Setting the rating via  CTRL-0 ... CTRL-5
    is very stressing for the left hand (just try it with 500+ images).

    Suggestion: allow for 0, 1, ... 5 to have the same
    functionality as CTRL-0, ..., CTRL-5.

5.) The image, for which the zoom/pan/etc is done should be 
    activated/marked as the current one.
    By this it is ensured, that a rating is associated
    to the image one is currently considering.

6.) Somehow the light-table does not feel too responsive
    on changes of the rating: i.e., it takes a while, until
    a changed rating is displayed.

7.) Sometimes (when using drag&drop) an image in the panel is updated, even though
    it is currently displayed
    (i.e., this takes a short time).
