(a QComboBox) Drawback: having a lot of hashes loaded (even 100, 1k, 10k, 100k?), it would be hard to use the drop down lists. When user chooses a format for a line, what should it mean? I am not against such design at all, I just wanted to share my concerns earlier. For the beginning, I'd made a read only field that lists all formats. Though it may overwhelm user. I am not sure that per line lists of formats are useful now. Some statistics about file may be helpful. Something like: all hashes in the file may be loaded as ..., ..., ..., but parts of file may be loaded as ..., ..., ... . > 2) Later when we add filter(1.6.3), add a filter category Type where we can > select with checkbox the types that we want to see/hide in the table view. > It will hide corresponding rows. It may work with read only field, so the filter would show a part of file that may be loaded as a certain format. Thanks! -- Regards, Aleksey Cherepanov
