Requests

Post by stooges » Mon Dec 13, 2004 3:31 am

Wow XNView is really neat
some reqs:

1 - Option to enable high quality resampling for slideshows

2 - Folder thumbnails (As in Windows Explorer or ACDsee: shows 4 pics from inside the folder)

3 - When right clicking a folder (or several folders) on the browser, then selecting Slideshow, it could fill the slideshow file list with the selected folders contents (recursively)

4 - Option to time the slideshow in miliseconds (like in viewer slideshow)

5 - Shortcut key to "Slideshow Start" on view mode (ACDsee uses "Pause" key - press again to stop) - also add this function the the context menu and the main menu (couldn't find it there).

6 - Right click on fullscreen viewer should bring the context menu, not send to previous pic (configurable?)

7 - Fullscreen view isnt hiding the windows taskbar here (Win XP, Taskbar always visible, auto hide off)

'Always on top' windows taskbar option apparently carries over to
full-screen mode as well. It happens intermittantly and often on Win2K
also. Unchecking it might provide temporary relief from this odd behavior.
<alt+tab> switching to another application then going back to full-screen
xnview session seems to temporarily stop this also.

Hello Stooges,

thank you for your suggestions and accolade.

5, 6, and 7 have been answered at already, nothing to add from my side. For 5 and 6 please continue the existing topics.

There's a request 'haute qualite en diaporama...' for this in the French forum and I guess this will come soon.

Also nice feature. Sure enough this should be configurable since displaying the folder thumbnails will affect performance.

Would be a good and helpful 'short cut' for experienced users. When introducing such short cuts, one should make sure that normal users are not too surprised.

Sounds as if you want to view a sort of movie. Could you explain your 'use case' a bit?

Note:
Answering your post is not easy, perhaps you can write individual topics next time (see also Rules & Guidelines)
