1.93.2: Right-click on preview opens Fax viewer

Post by dsp_418 »

I've just updated XNview to the 1.93.2 release.
Now the shellview gives me a weird problem: if I right click on an image, clicking on the preview doesn't open the image in XNview anymore. It opens the image in the Windows image viewer instead, or it opens the image with the associated program (for example Photoshop, etc.)
I'm wondering what's going wrong...

You have not that in previous version?? Could you try with a clean ini?

I've deleted my .ini file.
A new small configuration window appeared now (never seen it before), but the problem is not fixed.

So you double click on the file and it not opened in xnview, right?
Which format? If you use context menu/Open?

Nope, the problem is not about the double click.
I mean another thing: open the selected image in XNview, when you're viewing it via ShellExtension.
In the previous version, viewing the thumbnail shell extension and then moving the mouse over it and clicking, opened XNview with that image.
Now it opens the associated program.

Oh, it's not a bug, but a request by many users

Ops, I didn't know...
Is there an option to modify it or no way to customize it?

PLEASE fix!!!! i do not like the way it works now. it was much better before. please, please, please add an option back into the program to make it work as before. i think i am going to have to find an old copy and re-install over the newer version.

Thanks!

Same here... I'm thinking to look for a previous version.
The thing is that if I right click on an image into a folder containing several other images, I like the thing it opens the image with XNview, since this let me to continue to browse that folder and see the other images inside XNview (both browser e view).
It's a shame that now it opens the jpgs with the MS image viewer, it's too basic, or the tga, tif, psd (etc.) with PS, that requires such time to launch PS itself.
It's just my thought: of course I respect the decision from the developer to second the requests by other users. So, if you'll keep it as is, XNview will still remain my choice for viewing and browsing images, since it rocks!
Thanks for this great-great app.

FYI, if you do re-install an older version over the latest one, you will need to restart windows (assuming you are using windows) in order to get the right-click on images working correctly. luckily i keep a copy of all the programs i install on my computer and i was able to revert to a previous version.

i am still trying to figure out why anyone would want this behaviour that the latest version has. that is what the "open with" menu is for. Please, Please change it back or at least set an option that we can define for the command line to run when the picture is clicked.
