Re: Can't "make selection" for zoom

Just wanted to report that I have downloaded the latest version and I still have this bug. I can't select an area to zoom with the right mouse button. The right button just does exactly the same thing as the left and brings up the "pan" hand. Please could you fix this as I love your software but not...

How to create a database and do searches?

Sorry if this is stating the obvious but I have done a lot of looking and can't seem to find the answer. XNView allows you to tag photos - can you also have a database and search for tags? Note that I don't want XNView to make a database of all the photos on my computer, only those in a certain loca...

Re: Can't "make selection" for zoom

OK Pierre, I have figured this out now and there does seem to be some bug here. By renaming xnview.ini I was able to identify that this problem is caused by just one setting: "InFullscreen". (Options > General > Operations > Startup > "Mode when starting with a file".) This had been set to 2. With i...

Re: Can't "make selection" for zoom

While I'm here (sorry, I didn't know where else to post this) I just wanted to say how impressed and happy I am with XnView. I really love this software! For about 13 years I've been using ACDSee version 3.10, which was the best and fastest image viewer I was aware of though it always had many serio...

My settings are: KEYBOARD Space = Go to next picture Cursor Left/Right = Scroll left/right Cursor Up/Down = Scroll up/down MOUSE Left Button = Move picture Right Button = Make selection Mo...

Selection zoom improvement

I love XnView and would like to suggest three improvements to the selection zoom feature: 1. As you drag the selection, a white rectangle shows the exact area that will be shown after zooming. The background is darkened. 2. On-screen statistics showing the current and selected zoom levels (eg 50%). ...

Can't "make selection" for zoom

I am new to XnView but I can't seem to find a way to allow zooming by selection. I think this must be a bug.

In the keyboard options I change "Left Button" and "Right Button" to "Make selection", but when I hold down either button, I just get the hand tool which drags the picture.
