New user, help with some features :)

Post by Jetpoet » Fri Apr 24, 2020 11:50 am

Hello,

I'm an old-time user of an old version of ACDSee and I recently wanted to migrate to something free, more modern, slicker; after trying a lot of applications I found XnView and I literally fell in love with it. I miss however some features of ACDSee, in particular:

1) Is there a way to select two or more different folders (not a folder and its subfolders) and browse all of their files? ACDSee has a dedicated feature for this called Easy-Select.

2) When I arrive at the end of the folder, XnView only allows me to loop on the file list. Isn't there a way to loop but at the same time to alert me that I arrived at the end of the folder (for example with a beep)?

3) "Zoom in for Left button use in selection" does what it says, but the zoom in the selection doesn't fill the screen; moreover, it is quite slow and of poor quality, and it doesn't work if I start XnView by double-clicking on an image file from Windows Explorer.

4) If I have "Auto Image Size" set to "Fit image to window, all", is there a shortcut to resize the image back to its original size, while viewing the image?

Thanks and keep up the good work!

No

Currently no
3) "Zoom in for Left button use in selection" does what it says, but the zoom in the selection doesn't fill the screen; moreover, it is quite slow and of poor quality, and it doesn't work if I start XnView by double-clicking on an image file from Windows Explorer.
Lower quality than using 'zoom +'?
4) If I have "Auto Image Size" set to "Fit image to window, all", is there a shortcut to resize the image back to its original size, while viewing the image?
no sorry
Pierre.
