If you have to open lots of directories (or run/open lots of files) simultaneously,
drag the selection onto a blank section of the iconbar. To drag multiple selections,
clear/save the Pinboard, drag sub-selections onto it, then select the whole of the
Pinboard and drag that to the iconbar.
Enhancements and Borrowings:
It would be nice to drag a selection of bits on the desktop (Pinboard stuff & windows)
into a "Desktop Window", and can be resized, pulled in/out of other desktop windows,
as a kind of virtual desktop. There are many more exotic virtual desktops, so I'm sure
this is possible.
It also be nice to be able to snap/justify a selection of windows or all windows into
columns/rows/tiles, which can be very helpful with two !Zap windows for Diffing files
when you have to step through them and the differences are too complex 'n' subtle
for an automated comparison. I can do this manually, but it's so much fiddling around.
There is an existing wedge to allow windows to be resized from any corner/side, a' la
doze, and another that allows directory viewers to be gain focus, thus allowing keyboard
shortcuts, but this has strange bugs which crash the machine & mess with the config on 3.11.
There was some kind of proposal in Visa doze to have previews in MsWord and other applications,
so you could see previews of part of the document with various effects applied, eg different
font or font effects, so as to make a decision more quickly. Since the only direct experience
I have of Visa is a shop demo (which crashed), I do not know how widely this has been implemented.
However, it is alive and well on RO with !Variations. Perhaps more RO applications could join
the party on this.
doze Ribbons only seem to fix issues only occurring on doze, and are of limited use here,
or does someone else know different?
