Re: Saving a PDF after compressing images fails

Hi! Is this a regression? As in it worked properly in previous builds (ie. 331) but not in the latest release (332).

I'd test it myself but I'm not at a location I am able too.

Re: [Suggestion] More commands in right click menu of tab

To me that looks bloated... I hope there is at least some logic in that if only one PDF is open, you don't get all those commands like "Close all Tabs But This", "Close all Tabs to the Right", etc. and have those only show when 3 PDF's are open or more.
