Hi there,

A shortcut key for "jumping to a random image in range" (eg, "R") is also the only thing that's keeping me from switching to XnView. Has this been implemented, by any chance? If not, any hacks?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply Pierre.

Failed to find the "quick slideshow" option, either on the program or on the instructions PDF. Is there any topic/guide on that, please?

Explanation of desired feature:

I very often want to move to another image while I'm already in fullscreen mode seeing one file. At that point many image viewers have a functionality/hotkey to simply jump to another random image on the same path. This really helps when you want to serendipitously browse for a large set of images. Have you pls considering implementing something like that?

Thanks again for the help this fantastic project!

Thank you! Is there any way to:
  • Assign a keyboard shortcut to the "quick slideshow" button
  • Have it go through images in random order
  • Use a keyboard press as the transition trigger
Thanks again
