Re: Close/Exit button in Viewer

what other users think about that? I believe a good GUI interface should allow any influencing action (excluding user input like typing) from BOTH the keyboard and the mouse. Everything should be possible with both. The ubiquitous 'Ok' control can be accessed by (tab,tab..) Enter/spacebar or by a m...

Re: How to change, or/and create new keyboard shortcuts

A thousand pardons, tomaasz - haven't been around.

If it's still current - I don't recognise the dialogue box.
Where's it from - Windows , XnView or XnViewMP?

Re: set keywords in full screen view

Greetings Holger.
Nothing much other than viewing seems possible in full-screen mode.
If you make an alteration of any kind, it's lost when you close f/s.
I don't understand why.

Re: XnView & XnView MP - convert to jpg - filename with "_1"

Confirmed.
If a file of the same name already exists, a conversion from .psd adds a _1, as an example, as expected.

Re: previews are right, thumbnails are wrong

Without a local Help file, this is hard to track.

There's 'EXIF thumbnail - Rebuild' under Tools, Metadata - and there's View, Rebuild thumbnails (in Browser mode).
I wonder if there's a difference.

Re: how to re-create the thumbnail stored in the exif data

BTW, the rebuild operates on only those jpgs that have been selected, I find. Tagging/ticking them doesn't lead to rebuilding thumbnails - the 'EXIF thumbnail - Rebuild' under Tools, Metadata remains greyed-out. Note also that 'EXIF thumbnail - Rebuild' will be greyed-out when any non-jpg files are ...

XnView 2.47 or 2.48?

The website is reporting 2.47.

The program is saying 2.48.

Is one right?

Re: How to change, or/and create new keyboard shortcuts

Is there no reference to the command-line switches that XnViewMP responds to? in XnView MP, you have only: -ini file.ini -slide file.sld -filelist list.txt -capture As they do for unused pages in the frontispieces of many printed books, would you consider putting ' This tab is left blank intentiona...

Re: How to change, or/and create new keyboard shortcuts

Four years later and the command-line switches are just as obscure. Yes, xnviewmp.exe -capture=desktop,d:\users\public\pictures\your_filename_###.jpg actually works, but what else is there? And no, Help, About, 'Command line' tab - is blank. The ? control is unwilling to explain anything. Slashed ci...

Re: Image Print size in cm

In May, 2011 this suggestion arose, but there's been no progress in seven (7) years. :( I recently struggled when copying a graphic into a Word document, but no metric units* were available in MP. XnV and MP produced different sizes from the same file Ctrl-C'ed graphic into a Word page, XnV looking ...

Re: Nouns, Verbs, Prepositions & Logins

Indeed, a 'log book' was devised to record the passage of a number of logs - timber, wooden logs - tied to a rope that was dropped over the side of a ship at sea to measure speed. Logs tied at fixed spaces on the rope meant that in a certain period of time, measured by a sand-glass, I expect, a cert...

Evidence of Donation

I'd like to make a donation to Pierre and his collaborators for his XnV programs but I would like some evidence of my contribution. I'd like some integrated evidence of my being a donor because: 1. I often forget what programs I've contributed to (and only occasionally do I want to do it repeatedly....
