CoverBrowser: set default display modes on first launch #3834
As requested in #3817 (comment) :
I tried cover images and filenames, which would be the less intrusive for people used to classic mode, but the bigger filename in bold was a bit strong for me (when compared to Classic mode with small font size). Metadata with title and authors on 2 lines looked nicer.
@KenMaltby : I believe you use classic mode: with this, on your next update, you'll be switched to some other modes, and you'll have to manually reset them to classic mode (and delete Cache DB if you want to keep things tidy). Is that ok ?
That sounds good for me, I do use the Classic Mode in the File Browser and the "Detailed with cover images and filenames" for History. I also have the "Append series metadata to title" checked, which works sometimes. My only worry might be for the average user's possible confusion. It looks like your defaults should appeal to most and make a good starting point for the user. I also think that those more concerned with performance and a large library, would be more likely to be those able to find their own optimal solution, among the options you provide. So should work fine, but in any case if it were to become an issue the users will let us know. Personally, I think they will like it.
