Keyboard/mouse - cursor left/right

Post by Dreamer »

"Scroll left/right" by default make no sense if "cursor left/right" default is not scrolling too. Since scrolling is possible by numpad keys now, I suggesto to change option:

Keyboard/mouse - "cursor left/right" to "Prev./next file" by default.

I'm not so sure about this one. I even think that we had "Previous/Next image" in the past and changed it to "Scroll left/Right". There is Page up/down for Previous/Next image.

If you associated Cursor left/right to Previous/Next image, the scrolling with the normal cursor keys would no longer be complete, since vertical scrolling was possible, only.

OK, but then cursor keys should scroll also up/down, at least.
There is Page up/down for Previous/Next image.
And there is numpad 8 4 5 6 2 0 and mouse for scroll. :wink:

But it's not complete even now - with currrent default options. :?

Anyway, I think we should decide if cursor keys will scroll or switch images/frames. It's not important for me, but current behavior (default options) is not good IMO.

Default behaviour for the four cursor keys is scrolling, and there's Page up/down for navigating to the previous/next image. I think that is pretty complete - isn't it?

No, if I rename xnview.ini to have default settings, I have:

Cursor left/right - Scroll left/right
Cursor up/down - Prev./next frame!

Perhaps it's just a bug, since it doesn't work good when it's changed, already reported elsewhere.

...Yes, it works good, but check the options dialog.
