I'd like to suggest allowing a dual screen workspace, whereby we can take the top 15 or 20 tools on one screen, and have them arranged and expanded, easy to see and adjust. The other screen would be the large image, and possibly (probably) the film strip. For me, it's cumbersome to go through a batch of photos and need to jump back and forth between tabs and expand multiple tools. I'd prefer my laptop screen to just be filled with tools (similar to how DaVinci Resolve has the timeline and tools on one screen, and your viewers on the other(s)). For those using an iPad as a second/third monitor, this would be even more handy. I know you can make the viewer and filmstrip smaller currently, but that just gets you more horizontal real estate for your tools, not another 2 columns of tools, like I'm talking about. And yes, one could create and arrange a bunch of floating tools, but something tells me that opening and closing the program would lead to those getting shuffled.
Here's my rough example:
What problem do you see this solving?
This would allow users to see all of their most used tools, laid out how they like, without having to navigate tabs and collapse/expand dropdown views.
When was the last time you were affected by this lack of functionality, or specific tool?
Roughly 65% of all my C1 editing time.
Are you using any workarounds or other solutions to achieve your goals in Capture One?
Yes, I've customized my layout to put more of the same tools into the same panel, but of course, they get collapsed and need to be expanded.
Are you happy to be contacted further about this suggestion or request?
