Some problems in Option's window.

Post by Nelson » Fri Aug 11, 2006 9:04 pm

1. In "Interface->Recent lists".
Uncheck "Show Most Recently Used Files in File menu", the "Show Most Recently Used Files in submenu" is grayed.
But when I reopen the option window again, it is not grayed and is enabled.
It should still be grayed (disabled).

2. In "Browser->File List->Items displayed".
There are two "Custom files" at the bottom. There should be only one, right?

3. In "Browser->Thumbnail->Appearance".
The "Use huge thumbnails" is always unchecked after I reopen the option window.

XnView 1.90 <x>

The idea is to allow both include and exclude functionality at the same time (which currently isn't possible with v.1.82.4).

Thanks for answering.

Then there should be some tips.
Otherwise, users don't know what they are and don't know which is for include/exclude.

Thank you for reporting these bugs. But please wait with reporting bugs till the first beta is out. Please report one problem per topic, then.

Perhaps "Please choose which items are shown in the browser" should be changed, maybe something like this could be added "... (uncheck to exclude)".

This bug still exists in Alpha2.

And this topic should be at Alpha - Bugs group.
Can somebody help to move it to there?

No, 'Use huge ..." will be checked only if your thumbnail size is greater than 320x320

Works in Beta 5.

I don't find this feature straigthforward -> a better solution is needed, IMO.

I think it shouldn't be automatically unchecked, because:
- The user decided to check it (for whatever reason).
- He may want to switch frequently between small & huge thumbnails and checking this regularly would just be a pain in the ass.
