Alternate colour could also serve as special effect if screen capture were used. I also like the variable width idea for same reason.

Nice *Bump*

:) Hello B. !

• Thanks to *bump* that topic !

- I miss a colour¦lines thickness choice very often.

As discussed here already, XnView please provide us with the following ini-file settings. (Any configuration dialogue may follow much later..)

Code: Select all

GridOpacity=100        ; 0 to 100% to control visibility
GridColor="RGB-value"   ;like shown with the Display/Colour Information
GridType=1               ; several line types, 1=solid(default)
GridThicknessX=2        ; in pixel
GridLabelsX=1           ; 1=ON (standard),  0=not shown
GridXoffs=0             ;pixel coordinates for  grid startpoint
These options (in combination with the already existing Text Option) would help all of us a lot!
You may think of the following XnView use cases:
  • add imagescale/size-information to figures captured via TWAIN-interface
  • annotate Batch Transformations if the Grid option will be introduced to the Tools/Batch Convert/Transfomations list also

A 'dock text to grid' function on 'add text' dialog could look something like this:
There could be much versatility with grid sub-dialog (with options discussed previously).
Additional possibilities:
[x]Add grid to image
[x]Limit grid to text length
[x]Limit grid to number of text lines

add proportional grid

I discover the very usefull grid, but could you please add some setting like divise the image horizontal/vertical by N. Actually the grid is set by absolute pixel, I suggest to set propotional grid. Like 3 rows verticale/horizontal -> that will be VERY usefull to verify if the image respect the 2/3 photography rules. CF BB do it. I propose to you to add a checkbox indicating ig value correspond in pixel or percent subdivision.

Adding one more to the wishlist:
There should be one shortcut for showing/hiding the grid (perhaps it is already there, but I couldn't find it in the list of All Current Hotkeys / Shortcuts).
