That's gated behind a couple of bugs with that view mode that I have to fix first though. Might be difficult, because in order to fully display most filenames, you'd need to make the icon size large enough, but then you'd only be able to display relatively few items. The file dialog is different to Dolphin in the sense that the space the viewport can occupy is quite small, so a different view mode is not too bad. I'm curious though if you have a magic patch in mind which creates space out of nothing ;) > Details View as the general default also makes sense for me once D11993 <https://phabricator.kde.org/D11993> lands (without that, it's often almost unusable). Something to keep in mind: Both GTK and Windows also default to Details View. --- More ideas to fit more buttons: - Consolidate the view mode buttons into a single button with a radio button pop-up menu (just like in Windows). - Move the reload button to the URL navigator. - Display the reload button only for remote folders (where KDirWatch cannot work).
