Escape behaviour improvement

Post by prak » Fri Jan 02, 2009 12:51 pm


I would suggest adding another option to how pressing the Escape key should behave (or alter the current one). None of the currently available does exactly what I want.

What I would like is that pressing the Escape quits xnview when run with a picture in fullscreen. However, if I use enter (or whatever other way) to switch to the browser, further quits are disabled and pressing the Escape merely closes the fullscreen viewer and returns back to the browser.

Without this, I can't really use the "Only when started in fullscreen" option, as I then keep accidentally quitting xnview in case I start it in fullscreen, but then I decide to do some more browsing and switch to the browser. So I have to use the "Never" option, but then I always have to quit the browser which it goes to after being used as system viewer or whatever.

The idea is to have the Escape always return to wherever the fullscreen viewer was launched from.

Thanks for considering this.

If you use "Only when started in fullscreen", ESC quit XnView if you start it with a file, and not if you go to the browser...
