I just want to bring this up again, because it really annoys me. I
don't understand why the former way of handling this isn't being
restored again. Digikam has lost a lot of operability for me, and I
hardly like wiorking with digikam. If it weren't for some nice
features which I don't find elsewhere, I would have dropped using it.
BTW, I'm now at Kubuntu 14.4 with digikam 3.5.0, the problem is the same.

That's too cumbersome, because it may be a few hundred images, and I
may miss a few. Browsing through the album to get the complete range
takes time. It would be so much easier if the entire album would be
again in the thumbnail-list of the editor.

That's not the easy way. The editor is in full screen, so I can see
the details clearly. To switch back to the album view and selecting
the next image takes a number of clicks which could be avoided.

Tried it, doesn't work.

The other suggestion that came up to use the lighttable is of no use.
I always found lighttable difficult to handle, and the fact that I
can't see the pictures in full size makes it useless for my purposes.
It's just good enough for an overall comparison of two very similar
pictures, but not for the evaluation of individual images.
