  Ah, small misunderstanding: I was mainly referring to not making Above 
filename (in conjunction with Short View) the overall default for the dialog. 
If Detailed (Tree) View was the default, changing the mode of Short View is 
probably fine. We could also add a third button, so it would work just like in 
Dolphin (needs removing Reload, but who is using that anyway, because it's not 
even present in Dolphin? See also D12215 <https://phabricator.kde.org/D12215> 
  Regarding your examples of primarily "visual" documents: I acknowledge that's 
one of the uses cases. However, please understand that here we are building a 
generic dialog. It also has to work for save (where previews do not make much 
sense, because you are mainly selecting a directory and then typing the 
filename manually), and for all other filetypes where you'd rather have long 
names than a big icon. The unifying theme for all items is the filename, not 
the preview! IOW, your use case is only a subset of all possible cases, but the 
default choice should fit all situations. Of course your work in making it 
easier to switch is important here, too…
