Re: When DNG opened in fullscreen, does XnView change DNG content/RGB?

I mean, the message "This picture will be converted to RGB with 8bits per component" seems inoffensive when I open image in fullscreen, just a "read" operation XnView is performing, but it can't harm/affect the DNG content actually. Is this understanding right? Yes, as long as y...

Re: Batch convert to transparency?

Thank you for your customary detailed response: not only possible, but a choice of methods... My considered use case arises directly from my freely-admitted perfectionist personality trait: I need to prepare a file containing copies of a series of letters in which carefully selected text is highligh...

Draw tool - Constrain line angle with Shift

The Draw tool was a very welcome addition to XnView MP :D. But just one more request please: In drawing programs, there is a convention when drawing a line that holding down the Shift key constrains the angle drawn to multiples of some angle value, typically 0 45 90 or 0 30 60 90 ... That option wou...
