"Fit window to image" does NOT work

Post by pstein » Thu Dec 20, 2007 9:40 pm

I changed the option to "Fit window to image". See:

But there remains still a grey border around the image.See

Why is there no real, complete "fit window to image"

could not an option to either manually set the minimum window size or disable it be added?
atleast the minimum window height has no reason in my head. there's nothing that gets truncated in the gui if you reduce window (image area) height to 0.

and about window width I guess the thought is that it gets ugly when menu bar hops down on several rows.... suggestion:
settings: hide menu bar? (been wishing for this ever since I switched to xnview)
menu bar could like in new mIRC or acdsee be present in top-left program icon drop-down if you've hidden it?
then if you've hidden menu-bar (and toolbar etc) there are only the title-bar ([¤] Xnv.. [-][^][x]) left to set a minimum window width.

then window could fit to all image heights and all image widths down to the width of the title-bar icons drawn together.

I would be very happy for this feature! :)
Thanks!

I agree with the strange window height behaviour. I'm fine with the minimum width though...
Get the bugs fixed, THEN start adding features. It sucks, but someone has to do it.

Why after all these years is ViewWidth=416 still forced? Would it be very difficult to permit users a choice in this so they aren't left with large grey spaces around smaller images? Please consider it. This is another thing ACDSee 2.5 got right, but I'd rather use XnView if it can solve a few lingering issues that were never addressed.

It is currently not possible for the window to become smaller than this without exposing grey borders.

In part because of this parameter being actually forced to 416 no matter what you input. But this should not be the default behavior in the first place.

May I recommend making it at least possible to bypass this? Several image viewers do not exhibit this oddly specific behavior, not even my 10 year old copy of ACDSee image viewer. Though I am trying to make the switch to XnView. To do so, I believe there are just two or three missing features that stand in the way, but could surely be worth fixing.

as you can see a lot of even the simplest feature requests are not understand and accepted.

Just a recommendation:

Get the pretty unknown but VERY useful picture Viewer "Imagine" from here:

http://www.nyam.pe.kr/dev/imagine/

It has everything you (we) want.

Don't mix it with other tools called "Imagine" as well.
