Deskew

I also have had trouble deskewing. In my case I'm trying to straighten a gray picture that is slightly tilted but which has no horizontal lines. So I can't use deskew. I don't know if it would be worth the trouble for P to program, but I've seen a nice solution to this problem. When you click on "de...

Version numbers on release files

I work in a rapidly-changing software release environment, and we always--for the past 15 years or so--label releases with their version number. This obviously is not necessary for new users, but it is a nice gesture and convenience for the people who update frequently and who want to try out the la...

I agree that limiting the filename is not a good idea.

This problem occurs frequently in Windows in general: (a) the file name is much longer than the space available to display it, and (b) it's the actual filename--at the right end of the long path/name--that is the worthwhile information. The solution, in my opinion, is to set the properties of the co...

Restore vs. Remove

"Restore" means to "put back to how it was before." So: 1. Program ABC is the player for JPG files 2. I use "Associations" to make XnView the new player for JPG files 3. I use this for a while, and decide I don't like it. 4. I come back to "Associations" and click on the "Restore All" button What no...

Minor wording change/fix

1. On the "Strip of Images" dialog box, there are buttons that say "Horizontal adjustment" and "Vertical adjustment." The word "adjustment" is not right; it should be "alignment." 2. On the same dialog box, and only because you're there fixing the above, you can remove "respectively" from the line "...

Help

Hello Helmut, Thanks for the reply. I'm going to be out of touch on Thursday and Friday, but will answer on Saturday. From looking at the existing help file, and comments on the forum, and the menu layout of today's XnView, I have a big question for you: If I invest many hours to make the help file ...

HTML Help (chm)

Gentlemen, What's the current status of (English) help? I have the latest version of XnView, and my Help file is quite a bit out of date. Is there another, more recent version available? If not, I'd like to help write one. I generate help files (CHM mostly) for my regular job, and know a little--not...

Slice & Splice

Pierre, If you don't put this feature in XnView, I might tell some of the fundamentalist right wing extremists that have taken over our country that there are hidden supplies of oil in France that you're not telling us about. Then we'll invade your country, kill lots of people ("terrorists"), set up...
