Thumbnail view drawn at least 2 times

Post by Lesmo16 » Tue Aug 30, 2005 5:54 am

It's really annoying, that every thumbnail view is drawn at least 2 times (sometimes more).
That occurs everytime the thumbnail view changes, because the user choses:

- other folder
- other "View as"
- other "Sort by"
- other favourite
- other layout
- ...

IMO the first impression of a software is very important, because it determines if the user will give it a further try.
xnView's fine customizable GUI looks absolutely great, and the functionality is amazing ...
... but there are these flickers and double drawings which disturb a perfect Look&Feel. :?

Perhaps you have "don't show other files", so i must read all files, check if they are pictures, and delete non image files.

You're right, that's the reason for the described behaviour ...
... but it shouldn't remain and easily be fixed. :mrgreen:
