browse files with left/right mouse click - middle click 100%

Post by rando » Thu Dec 24, 2009 3:57 pm

I used Imagine as image viewer but find Xnview much better so I switched to Xnview.

However I used 2 things in Imagine which I can't find in Xnview:

1)
I want to use my left and right mouse to browse files (in the viewer).
left click: previous image
right click: next image

2)
I want to use my middle click to switch the image to 100% view.

Is this possible?

I tried it with hotkeyP but I would like to do this only within the viewer window (except the toolbar and statusbar).
Using hotkeyP it takes over my left-mouse changing the image to previous image wherever I'm.

Thanks in advance and best wishes to all.

These settings come closest, I guess:

Tools » Options » General » Keyboard/Mouse
  • » Keyboard/Mouse » Mouse » Mouse Wheel
    » Switching modes » Use middle mouse click to switch between:

But that is only in fullscreen.
I always use the viewer (not the fullscreen).

It would be nice to have this option in
General --> Keyboard/Mouse --> Mouse -->
Left Button: Previous file (next image)
Right Button: Next file (next image)

Is this possible in a next release?

I can't do it with HotkeyP isn't it?

Hm.. I think it's not possible with HotkeyP, but there is a workaround. Why don't use these mouse shortcuts - even more intuitive and handy IMO:

- wheel up/down - prev./next picture
- right button+wheel up/down - zoom in/out
- right button+left button - reset zoom/fit image

Hi Dreamer,

I always used during all my pc years left/right mouse for prev./next picture.

Is it difficult to add this in a next release? 8)

General --> Keyboard/Mouse --> Mouse -->
Left Button: Previous file (previous image)
Right Button: Next file (next image)


I resolved the zoom question in hotkeyP:
Mouse M --> 198 xnview.exe&XmainClass

Thank you very much for this beautiful viewer :)
