Hide Previews…

Post by ouistiti » Wed Aug 10, 2005 9:06 pm

<Moderator's note: This topic has been moved>

In 1.80.1, we have previews for the filters features, and for the "Adjust…" dialogue too. Like a user tells here, this is boring in many cases.
- Hence, I would wish a check-box to enable / disable the Previews in both functions, I mean filters and "Adjust…"

:) Hello Paul !

- I support this request. In addition, to increase the efficiency of the option (when the previews are hidden), I guess that these dialogue-boxes might be made as resizable…

There is a way to see changes on larger photo: After selecting slider, you can move dialogue off-screen and use arrows to adjust gamma while seeing full-size view.

Resizable dialogue-boxes? Firefox is my only program which does this (I never thought of looking for this feature until reading your comment).

:) Hello !

• Thanks for the trick; alas, I have to work with so small images the most times, hence these new "Previews" are really exasperating !

- We have already a resizable box in XnView : "Open"…
- It isn't so rare, we have some in Total Commander (to edit the custom columns), and in other programs too… When programming, it isn't difficult to get a resizable box, just state "True" instead "False" for the instruction…
- The snag is that many times, while you have i.e. a combobox or a list-field that causes to get scroll-bars, that combo or list-field is not enlarged too when you enlarge the dialogue…

:mrgreen: Kind regards,
Claude

Uh, as with 1.74 or any version before it, you already had to move the dialog box around. So if you're going to move a tiny and redundant preview box so that you can see a large preview....

If anything 1.74 and previous would've been nice with a smaller dialog. (And a gamma-brightness-contrast dialog that resets to zero when you close XnView, hint hint hint hint hint). :D

Ok, i'll add an option to hide the preview...
