Set preview image from within notebook

Yes, I know, the notebook menu is already crammed. But if I want to set the thumbnail of a notebook that isn’t part of any collection, I have to page through all of my notebooks until I find it and can access its context menu.

I wouldn’t even mind if it was hidden in some obscure sub menu, as long as the number of steps to reach it is significantly less than the current workaround:

  1. click on menu
  2. click “add to collection”
  3. check a collection
  4. click “confirm changes”
  5. click collection name
  6. find notebook
  7. (click on context menu, click “set preview image”, configure, click “set image”)
  8. click on context menu
  9. click “in collections”
  10. uncheck the collection
  11. click “confirm changes”
