Re: Show thumbnails of PDFs

I've just updated Windows recently, a small update, probably rebooted several times, and now after a couple of days PDF thumbnails are back... For the record I use Windows 7 x64. I permanently disabled Windows updates back in 2016 when Microsoft started sending telemetry and installing malware. I c...

Re: Show thumbnails of PDFs

No, I can't view or preview PDFs in any way in XnView.

I will get in touch with Ghostscript and see if they can help. Their documentation is way too long and complicated to read, so I'll ask them!

Re: Show thumbnails of PDFs

Yes, I've installed GhostScript 9.53.3 x64bits, but XnView still looks like this:

Do you have to do anything with GhostScript? I only installed it, I haven't changed any settings.

Oh, I had no idea it was possible to see thumbnails of PDFs! That's great!

But I'm in the same position as the other guy here. I've installed Ghostscript (64bit) and can't see PDF thumbnails in Xnview. What do I need to do?

Show thumbnails of PDFs

I know XnView doesn't open PDFs, but it would still be really useful if it was possible to show a thumbnail of page 1 of each PDF in the browser!

Re: How to disable the pan tool in full-screen mode?

Just to clarify...

If I enable or disable "Show Pan Tool" in the settings, it does NOT take immediate effect. But it always takes effect after restarting Xn.

I suppose it would be ideal if it could take immediate effect, but not important.

Re: "Lock Zoom" only works the SECOND time you activate it

By the way, if you enable "Lock Zoom" twice in a row, it still won't work.

To make it work, you need to do "Lock Zoom" - then do some zooming - and then do "Lock Zoom" again.

Re: How to disable the pan tool in full-screen mode?

Sorry Pierre, you're right, disabling the pan tool DOES work. However, it doesn't take effect until AFTER the program has been closed and re-opened. Perhaps this could be improved?

"Lock Zoom" only works the SECOND time you activate it

I'm viewing images full-screen. I right click and select "Lock Zoom". The zoom does not lock. If I do the same again, it works the second time.

I'm running Windows 7 x64. XnView Version 0.93.1 - but this bug has been around for a while now I think.

Book Mode (for viewing comic/magazine scans)

Many people are now using comic reader programs to read scanned comic books. The trouble is, none of those programs are any good. (I've tried them and they suck!) XnView is so much better and faster at displaying these images, so I use XnView. Pierre, if you could just add a "Book Mode" to XnView, I...

How to do 2 things...

Two things I would like to do 1. In the thumbnail browser, customize the information shown in the status bar, so that when I click on an image, I can see its date at the bottom. 2. In the thumbnail browser, XnView is able to launch non-image files, including text files and movies. This makes me nerv...

Re: Two bugs with zooming

Why do you use right mouse button + wheel to zoom? Because I want the scroll wheel to move to the previous/next file. Or, if you're asking why I use the right button instead of the left button, because using the left button would require me to use my middle finger to scroll, which I have never done...
