Agreed.

You are right, as said it was my wrong thought...

Can we agree in this:
- A central toggle for showing size normal OR on-disk;
- displayed sizes in FW (and Alt-K/size) always regard this choice.
The central toggle can be placed
- either in the Alt-Sort menu (like 'F4 Timestamp')
  e.g. as 'F7 sizes' (to be reviewed),
- or elsewhere in the (main) menu.
Alt-Info should display both sizes.

Sincerely, Hartmut
