The files table

The table with the loaded files and their fields is located under the buttons’ bar. It can be sorted by any column just by clicking in its header.

In the video working modes (TV Series, Movies and Videos) a video player is shown beside the table. You can watch the selected video by clicking the ‘Play file’ menu or button.

In the Pictures mode, beside the table there will be a picture viewer where to see the selected picture. By double clicking in the viewer, the image will be opened with its default application.

Both the video player and the image viewer can be resized by dragging the space between them and the table.
