Act as "only image viewer"

Post by Mieczyslaw Zadety » Thu Aug 04, 2005 9:39 am

Act as "only image viewer".

1. Sometimes my folders contain not only images.
There are videos, music, pdf, and other many types of files. Now I want to XnView do not do anything to them all. I want XnView to be only fast image viewer. I want XnView to not show or open them all. There in XnView should be a checkbox "Act as only image viewer".
2. Where is a checkbox "do not try to connect to the Internet"?
For browsing I use only my Firefox! XnView is blocked within firewall because of security threat. When XnView wants to display some html's, tries to connect, then hangs and I have to kill it's process.

Regards.

Hmm, let's see.

Go to "Options / Browser / File list"
- uncheck all checkbox in the "items shown in thumbnail mode" frame, except folders (in case you want see them)
- uncheck all checkbox in the "items shown in other mode" frame, except folders (in case you want see them)
That should do the trick.

And XnView connect's to the internet because some of the html files haves tags what point's to url out of your computer. But no worry after unchecking those checkboxes XnView shouldn't try to connect to the Internet.

1. I think there is no working option to "Disable all non image files in Viewer and Fullscreen"

E.g.: You can disable "Play sound" - it works in Viewer, but it doesn't work in Fullscreen 'lite' - There are also no options to disable other non image files, e.g. htm...

2. Please read this topic.

Yeah. My hint only prevents non image to shown in browser, but it don't prevent XnView viewing non image files.
