For the sake of consistency, and to cater to ingrained habits - could the open with ... come on top like elsewhere? Don't know how important it is to still have Prev/Next on top. Seems like mouse clickers would much rather use the new clickable hotspots.

Apropos, those clickable areas require quite some mouse maneuvering, especially in folders with many different pic sizes. This is much easier in other viewers where you can keep your eye on the image itself, holding the mouse steady all the time and just click click click....

1. Well, I think it is where it belongs. FP is a viewer first of all. If you need Open With so often use the keyboard.

Using the keyboard spoils the whole idea of this new feauture. Then I can just use the keyboard for advancing pics as before, why would I constantly switch back and forth between and mouse and keyboard?

yeah, that's can be pretty unintuitive. Let arrow keys always navigate, and shift+arrow moves around.

Right, but arrow keys can also navigate themselves, except when the image is zoomed.
