Marlin Properties

Just thinking about possibilities for Marlin's Properties dialog.

Changed from a popover because some commenters pointed out a problem with comparing file info.

I'm open to suggestions about addition data/options to show

One thing that I've been thinking about is that most popovers should be tearable. Have a look at [link] - all of those HUDs start out as popovers that you can tear off to make little floating windows. It works well in practice (IMHO), too.

This should be added to Pantheon Files!

Very very nice!

Suggestion, an option for "mark as executable" specifically for Java (Minecraft) files. ;)

Thank you for making that suggestion as I was about too! It is one of the few things that bugs the hell out of me about pantheon! (The other being the lack of a easy way to Minimize windows -_-)

Some people also like to check the bitrate of their media, perhaps you should add that too.

Why Permissions field is so cramped, why so much wasted whitespace around, why not center it? this always really irks me.

Oh jeez I hadn't noticed that it was not centered and now it bugs the heck out of me.

It's not centered because it's indented under it's header. I'm not sure what you mean by "cramped". I would have made it taller, but I was just too lazy and figured it was not necessary since there wasn't really that much content present.

Man you must stop do this amazing mockups, i get disapointed everytime i minimize my browser !!
Maybe marlin should give the option to chose the tipe of properties: popover || modal ; i think some people never compares files, like me;

"Open With" section - must be before "Info" section, imho

Care to offer a rationale?

I think that after is better actually, and more logical, I'm sure that it's less used.

Shouldn't there be a way to share the file/folder in the network through samba under the "sharing"-section?

Yes sir, but this isn't a folder, this is a file ;)

Maybe I'll post an updated mockup that shows how folders are different :)
