    I've just noticed the commit dd699f8282c4d042945fe48caa7d412230f51306 and I am
    highly disappointed that the option (actually proposed by me) has been
    removed without any justification. I still think it is quite usefull.

    Best regards

    Hello Janusz,

    When you suggested this feature, you first proposed to have the hidden text
    overlaid on the images, then settled for a display in the status bar. Now we
    have the "hidden text" display mode which does what you initially wanted. I
    tend to aggressively remove old code to facilitate future maintenance. Do you
    have a use case that is not addressed by the hidden text display mode?

    You are right that my original request was for hidden text display mode (htt
    ps://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=1915309&group_id=32953&atid=406
    586),
    however the status bar display appeared quite convenient.
    I think both functions have their uses. The status bar version allows you to
    see *at the same time* both the image and the hidden text much more clearly
    than the display mode (which is slightly cumbersome to switch on and off).

    Best regards
