Save View Mode per skin - Would be great to have now limit on view modes been removed - Gamester17 - 2009-01-14 20:20

Today XBMC saves the view modes for each section and each section/source/directory in XBMC, this feature is great but it has an issue and that is when you want to try out a different skin.

Say if a user who have spends months setting up his favorite just the way he/she likes it, with different view modes than default in each section/source/directory in XBMC. Now currently if that user want to test a new skin, he/she will almost instantly mess up those view modes because the view modes are not saved 'per skin' so if that user does not like that new skin as much as their favorite skin and goes back, he/she will have to re-do all those view mode settings once again as the view modes are not the same in all skins.

I think this issue would be solved by XBMC saving all view modes 'per skin' in each profile Nod

Good idea? Confused Trac ticket => http://trac.xbmc.org/ticket/5684
