Items shown in view/fullscreen mode

Post by Dreamer » Thu Aug 18, 2005 4:33 pm

I suggest the same option as in Options>Browser>File List also for View>File List (there is enough space there):

Items shown in view mode:
[x] Video
[x] Audio
[x] PDF/EPS/PS
[x] Folders *
[x] Archives **

[x] all other files

maybe also:

Items shown in fullscreen mode:
[x] Video
[x] Audio
[x] PDF/EPS/PS
[x] Folders *
[x] Archives **

[x] all other files

* - including [..] item, with this option we could browse images in several folders, subfolders in View mode and Fullscreen mode

It would be nice with this feature - 4 thumbnails in 1 folder icon.

** - for XnView Deluxe only

Hmm I really don't see why.
XnView Tweak UI - Tool to customize your XnView beyond the regular XnView options.
UI-less Settings - Documentation of all the hidden settings in XnView.
XFAM - Tool to create and customize XnView file associations.

Currently, only XnView DeLuxe supports archives, I think that Dreamer wanted to take this into account. Sure enough in mid / long term, the archive browsing and the above option should make it into XnView, too.

That is very strange. Whey would I want to view a picture of a folder or an archive? This section is for actual stuff to be displayed, anything else doesn't fit.

Why Archives & Folders?
Perhaps an "Ignore extensions" will be better...

Not sure that's needed.

- it would be the same as browser option(s)
- it would be possible to press Enter on the folder to go into that folder (no need to go to browser and back when you want browse lot of folders with few pictures in each folder, e.g. 20 folders with 10 pictures in each)

It would be something like browser in thumbnail view without text and just one item in view/fullscreen mode.
