In Fullscreen mode new images are not opened "from outside"

Post by jo2h2 » Sat Mar 14, 2009 4:51 am

First of all - thanks for this really nice tool !

I am trying to use XnView as Fullscreen viewer with one instance by default. So I have configured XnView (1.96):
  • General / Operations - Only one Instance
  • Startup - >not< Launch Browser at Startup
  • Startup - >not< Maximize XnView at Startup
  • Startup - "Fullscreen - Edit"
  • Browser / Browser - Synchronize Browser selection with current View
  • Browser / Browser - Auto Refresh
  • Browser / Browser - Automatically select new files
  • View - Only one window view opened
  • View - No multiple view for same file
  • View - Open only one view for multiples files
Now I have the following effects:
  • When I set >Startup - "Fullscreen - Edit"< and double-clicking on an image in Windows Explorer, that image is displayed fine in Fullscreen mode - but when double-clicking on a different image in Windows Explorer XnView somehow switches its window and then XnView completely closes down - hmmm ...
  • When I set >Startup - "Fullscreen - Browser"< and double-clicking on an image in Windows Explorer, that image is displayed fine in Fullscreen mode - but when double-clicking on a different image in Windows Explorer XnView hangs. After a while pressing ESC I can close XnView but hmmm ...
  • When I set >Startup - "Normal"< and double-clicking on an image in Windows Explorer, that image is displayed fine in normal mode. Double-clicking on a different image in Windows Explorer XnView switches to that other image in normal mode - fine - but I want Fullscreen mode - hmmm ...
  • When I set >Startup - "Fullscreen" - Edit< plus >General / Operations - >>not<< Only one Instance< and double-clicking on an image in Windows Explorer, that image is displayed fine in Fullscreen mode. Double-clicking on a different image in Windows Explorer XnView opens again in Fullscreen mode - fine - but I only want one instance to run... - hmmm ...
So what do I do wrong ? How to configure XnView to simply show images in Fullscreen mode and being able to select other images in Windows Explorer without closing XnView before or without switching to normal mode before and without crashing or freezing the program each time I select another image in Windows Explorer ?

Thanks a lot for any hint !

P.S. using latest XnView 1.96 with Windows XP SP3 if this is important to know ...

Best wishes,
Jo ...

I can also see that in emulated environment: if while always remaining in fullscreen view, <alt + tab> to a file manager, and then launch another image.

I have similar result: it doesn't switch to new image until change is made to desktop view with <F11>.

Well, as I like XnView but find this behaviour - well - strange, not helpful.

Are these known issues ? Is that "by design" or are these bugs ? Can I do something, e.g. post it again in the bugs section ?

Thanks for any hint !!

Best wishes,

I would like to pull this question up again ...

I am using XnView in fullscreen mode - and - since ever, switching to a different folder, opening a new image does not show the image - as already described above.

Is there a setting I need to set to make this work ?

Thanks !

Hi,

sorry for pulling this question up again, but this is an issue I am facing since years - and its annoying since years and years.

I am using XnView in fullscreen mode - and - since ever, switching to a different folder, opening a new image does not show the image - as already described above.

Is there a chance that this will be fixed in a future release ? Or is there a setting I need to set to make this work ?

Thank you so much :wink:
