Cannot change picture tile size by dragging

Postby westwise » Thu Nov 16, 2017 2:20 am

Hello,
I have used XnView for years without any issues. I just installed it on my new Dell computer with windows 10 and all works well except that when I tile the pictures within XnView I cannot adjust the size of each picture window anymore?
On my other computers you can left click the mouse on the edge of the picture and drag it to adjust the tile size. This function doesn't work anymore which doesn't seem right?
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program and the same thing happens?
Can anyone help please as I love XnView but this makes it useless for looking at multiple pictures.
Thanks
Phil

Hi Pierre,
Thanks for the response. I have checked the Keyboard/Mouse settings and they are as follows: -
Left Button- Move Picture
Right Button - Make selection
Mouse Wheel - Zoom
Left Button use in selection - Zoom in.
I've tried changing the settings but it doesn't make any difference with regard to changing the shape of the tiles by clicking on the outside of the picture box and dragging it with the mouse (I still can't do it). Have you any other ideas?
Best Regards,
Phil.

Thanks for the response again. I changed the Left Button to Make Selection. The right button changes automatically to Move Picture but I still can't change the shape/ size of the picture tiles?
I've tried reinstalling it again but still get the same problem?
Best Regards,
Phil

by picture tile, you means the selection?

Hi Pierre,
If you open a new photo full screen then reduce it to a smaller photo within the xnview window. Xnview allows you to do this for a number of photos so you can see multiple photos within the xnview window. (using the middle button between 'minimise' and 'close')
I'm referring to these reduced photos as 'picture tiles'.
I can move the picture tiles around the screen but cannot change the shape of them anymore. On my other computer you can left click the edge of the picture tile and drag it to change the shape of the picture tile.
Sorry if my explanation is confusing. If I can attach a picture somehow I can show you what I mean.
Best Regards,
Phil.

Hi Pierre,
Just wondering if this is fixed now if I download the latest version?
Cheers,
