Would it be possible to get a tab in the details panel that just shows the content of the currently selected field?

I mean something like the comments textbox. So that when you click on a cell that has more text in it then you can see directly in the table view it is displayed in that textbox?
Now I keep changing the column width.

Interesting idea, but how many fields does this apply to ?
The lyrics field already has its own tab, the comments field has a field on the info tab which is into as large as the lyrics tab but is not too bad, are there any more ?

Normally? Not a lot. But since Jaikoz is my first tag editor that shows,nearly, all fields I have just found out how many garbage is actually in there.
Players/other taggers seem to write a sometimes sizable amount of text in different fields. People use a url fields to put the last part of the title in that didn't fit in the v1 title tag. Other fields are used to put the year of the track in (to protect them from being overwritten by that silly album year).
Sometimes the url is just longer then others or people put comments in other fields.
I would like to just click such a field and determine if the contents is useful or not.
Normally this isn't such a big issue, you just make the column wider. But because I'm almost starting from scratch I have all fields turned on and if I then just make them all wider I will be scrolling left to right until next christmas

For me it just seemed handy (at the moment) Thinking about it, for normal use you don't really need it

Unrelated question: Is there some place where I can set my timezone on the forum? Now I'm sending messages from when I was pretty sure I was asleep

OK, Ive added it the list (as a low priority item), I see it could be useful.

I cant see any way to change your timerone.
