History

#1 Updated by Simon Spannagel about 7 years ago

this is somehow different from #8646. while the latter one is clearly a bug this one here behaves as intended.

The problem is that you can't just display the zone system "thumbnail" but you have to process the picture to get these informations. So showing this all the time means having an additional plugin in pipe (and processing the pipe" without the need of the plugin for most of the time. So this is processed as soon as you enable the plugin (either by explicitely enable or by moving a control which enables the plugin as well) but not before.

Thank you for clarification. I wasn't aware of the overhead involved. -

it might be nice to have a monochrome mock-thumbnail there when the plugin is opened, but that deserves almost no priority at all.
