This is a good idea, but we have to think about the technical details. Now the 
information is stored in the session file of the project. We do not have this 
without a project. We could save them in the global config file, is this a 
good place? This would also mean that we drop the non project views when we 
load a project and load them again when we close the project. 
But then we need a better name. It must be unrelated to projects. Suggestions?

So you mean drop the menu entries and put everything in the file list view? 
But I really love the toolbar in the menu to switch. With your suggestion we 
have to open the file list view change the view and close the file list view 
So I agree to move the view stuff into the file list view. I also agree to 
move the actions form the Project menu to the file list view but I do not 
like to drop the toolbar.

No problem so far. Actually an easy start.
