Question Would it be possible for a next version of Sigil?

When in CodeView I do right click on an <img> tag, the contextual menu allows me to open the image in a tab. Would it be possible to add the "Open with..." command to that contextual menu (right click on an image tag), so instead of opening the image in a tab and from there, to open it in an editor program, I can do all in only one step?

If we add "Open With" to that context menu, it still wouldn't allow you to do it in one step. You'd still have to right-click in Code View to open the image in a tab, and then right click in Code View again (which you'd have to switch back to since the opened image tab would've replaced the Code View you originally right-clicked on) to open the image in an external editor. What am I missing?

That would make sense, I guess. But I admit I'm still quite confused about the "All in one step" comment.

It all would depend on how modular the "Open With" code is, and whether or not the Code View widget would be able to supply the same information that Book View's TreeWidget/Model does to create the context menu item.

I want to say that I want to be able to open an image directly from Code View, and that the contextual menu, when I do right click on an image tag, can display the command "Open with..." Sorry for my bad english.

But why? If you are going to edit a lot of images and given that the same image can be used in multiple places in the same book, wouldn't it make sense to use "open with" directly on the image file in BookBrowser and only have to do it just once.

If you are not going to edit a lot of images, then the single extra click is not an issue and seeing the result of the file changing in the opened image tab is important.

And after looking; I can say that it probably wouldn't be that easy to do. Not without a lot code duplication anyway. The "Open With" functionality itself isn't that difficult. But the building of a dynamic context menu to accommodate it all is a bit tedious. It would involve a lot of refactoring I think.

There IS a deprecated QSignalMapper in there, though, that I'd like to eliminate regardless.

If I need to work on multiple images, I UNPACK (Sigil is not used here), use my favorite image tool, then repack. Then, and only Then, do I Sigil it

@theducks
If you were always processing the images in a set particular way, you could also use en edit plugin to process all of the images for you. That said, If you have to use judgement to modify each image uniquely then of course a plugin would not be an option.

A plugin could create a thumbnail of each image (with related colour and dimension info) and allow the user to check one of a number of common transformations for each image.
In fact a plugin like this might be very useful for Sigil in general.

It all depends what types of transformations to images are needed and if they can be standardized in some way. Python PIL can really do a lot with image files.

I have to edit a lot of images and those ones are only used in one place (in the ebook). There are about two hundred images and it`s easier (by far) to me to edit them when I'm working in Code View (just I do right click on the image tag to open the image in a tab, and from that tab, to invoque the command "Open with..."), that to find the image in the BookBrowser. Do the try to find image after image in the BookBrowser when there are a lot images; you need to open the image folder first, then scrolling to find the image, and after that, to invoque the command Open with... And how you know the name of the image to open in the BB? Because first, you saw its name in the Code View. So I want to be able to edit the image when I see the image name in the Code View. Right now there is a command (Open tab for image) when I do right click on a image tag in Code View. Well, I'm asking if it can be possible to add (below that command) the "Open with..." It's not only one extra click Kevin. Of course, if you can't add that command in that place, you can't

That doesn't have to change... why that must change? The "Open tab for image" command must remain.

If we decide to go this way, we could make a static routine that takes a passed in QMenu * and a passed in Resource Type and adds a context menu (of the right type) to the QMenu. OpenExternally may be the right place to store the code that builds that menu as it has only static routines now. It may work but as you said it would be a very very messy change for not much payback.

Agreed. If it were trivial to do, I'd have no problem. But it does seem like really long driveway leading to a tiny house.

Not dismissing it outright, Rueben, but it would certainly have to take a back seat to other projects.

How about a keyboard shortcut to 'go to' the image in the Book Browser (e.g shift+alt+i) so that its Open With could be used. By 'go to' I mean give keyboard focus to the image file in the BB so that user can use the keyboard (e.g. shift+F10) to pop the image files context menu, and then select Open With the required image editor.

Not sure how that that would work with mouse clicking or on Linux/MacOS.
