Default behaviour for mouse wheel in Viewer

Subject: 0.83: Mouse wheel doesn't zoom in/out by default

When using the mouse wheel in View mode, XnView navigates to the previous/next image. Instead, XnView should zoom in/out.

By default, mouse wheel should do zooming and not navigating (like in XnView Classic).

you call for an uniformisation of behavior between same author's software.
I'd call for un standardisation of behavior in regard to what the majority of similar software propose (about every other image viewer I know uses the mouse wheel to next/prev)

Both uniformisation and standardisation are important, thibaud. But why make all those changes in XnView MP, only? From my point of view, XnView MP should be a 1:1 port of XnView Classic. And if things like a default behaviour should be changed, then this should be discussed and changed in both XnView MP and XnView Classic.

I think that XnView MP and XnView Classic should behave the same way if possible.

Personally, I'd prefer if mouse wheel would zoom in/out by default. Other opinions (apart from thibaud and mine)? Is there a de-facto standard?

Zooming with the mouse wheel seems a standard, but it's using Ctrl + mouse wheel, isn't it? [MS Office, Libre Office, Firefox, Opera and Adobe Acrobat, for example].

That would leave 'mouse wheel' free for next/previous image as a de facto standard in image viewers, as thibaud suggested above...
