Disable / Remove Share Option in Gallery [released]

When I open a video in the gallery, half of the screen is used to display the "Share" options. Since I don't use any accounts to "share" content, this is just wasted space for me (but not the reason for my question). The really annoying part for me is that this "Share" screen reappears every time you pause a video, even from fullscreen in landscape mode. This makes it unnecessary hard to skip through the video using the progress bar, since this limits the bar to half of the screen.

So my question is: Is there a possibility to disable the Share Option screen in Gallery, or at least make it not reappear when pausing a video?

Agree, next to that, when clicking a photo, show the photo full screen instead of half screen and make the sharing options appear only on click.

This request was finally met with the introduction of the new Gallery app in 2.20 (see release notes here: https://together.jolla.com/question/184471/release-notes-220-mouhijoki/), so I'm closing this thread.
