Slideshow - switch to another application window

Post by klapperstorch »

Sometimes I would like to switch temporarily to another application window while a slide show is runnung, just to display something else, e.g. Google Earth.
After that I would like to return to XnView and continue with the slide show where I interrupted it.
In other applications it is possible to use the Alt-TAB key-combination to switch to another application window.
In XnView this key-combination brings me from the slide show full screen display to the XnView window and back to the full screen display, but not to any other window in the background.
Could this behavior be changed, or some other means be provided which allows to temporarily switch to another window and then come back and continue the slide show where it was interrupted?

I just noticed that switching windows works as desired when I start the slide show by double-clicking on an .sld file.
It does not, when I compose the slide show in XnView and press Start on the slide show composition window.
Since I know now how to do it I can live with the current behavior.
