Fullscreen view on secondary display

Post by EvilMF »

I'm not sure if it's a bug or not, but I'll still try to post it :)

The problem is: whenever XnView enters fullscreen mode, it always switches to the primary display, even if the main XnView window is opened on the secondary display. Sometimes it's very useful to have fullscreen view on the secondary display, so I think this behavior is not right. E.g. in my configuration: primary is LCD monitor and secondary is LCD projector, and I like to see the pictures on the big screen, but it is only possible in windowed mode, and that's a pity. There is no option to change such behaviour, the only two options regarding secondary monitor I have found (Options/View/Fullscreen) can't help me.

So please, either explain me why XnView behaves so, or accept this message as a bug report :)
I'm using the latest version (1.94.2) in standard configuration.

Similar problem except in my case, if I put XnView on my second monitor, open an image and then hit F11 for full-screen, everything disappears. I have to click on XnView in the taskbar and hit Esc to bring it back.

Also just to be clear, this is NOT the preview mode, which works fine (except that it doesn't use high quality filtering, could we please get an option for that?)
