Sluggish startupdue to thumbnail generation

Hello Dan

In working up a folder containing a large number of NEF and JPG images I was troubled today by the very sluggish behaviour of 4.03, and was almost about to reinstall an earlier version! I soon recognized that the problem was due to obligatory creation of thumbnails as a background process.

I personally do not find the right-hand folder panel in Version 4, with its icon views (even of the folder contents!) at all useful, since I load up my image queue from a directory list following Ctrl-O rather than by dragging from the right hand panel.

Is there some way to specify in preferences that the right hand panel and its background processes be disabled?

Sorry, there is no way to disable the navigation bar.

I understand your concerns, we will try to optimize it somehow or add an option to disable it. Good news is that the thumbnails are created only once.
