Separate Table and Geometry Tabs for Preview in Catalog

 Instead of a single preview tab in Catalog with a combo box for tables or geometry, there should be two tabs. One for table and one for geometry. This would be much faster than previewing the geometry and then changing to table from the drop combo box
This seems like it would be a simple little change, but it would save tons of time simply by not having to preview images automatically (especially when you work with large and/or extremely geographically complex and detailed datasets).
Detachable tabs to independent windows would be even better solution (like in Google Chrome). Stand-alone Contents window, Table preview window, Geography preview window and Description window would provide instant and simultaneous access to needed information.
