Is it possible to use the arrows on your keyboard to select the next or previous image,like you would do with the spacebar in full screen mode. That way i can still see all the info. i use the light table view mode 99% of the time. i could not find a setting make the change. now i can only use the preview panell when the thumbnails are selested and ofcourse the all of them is open in the preview panel. or you should be able to make changes to the fulscreen mode where we can still se all the info while looking through your images.
You had to show some image example as I'm not sure I understand your request, but probably that could be helpful.
