Request: 2 simple requests on the 'Loop' feature

Post by budz45 »

Hi again,

Ok, I want to leave feedback on 1 change and 1 new feature regarding the subject of 'Looping' files:

1. Ok, on this setting here...

I think this would be better renamed as Loop the file list in Viewer
...this rename would better communicate to the user what this setting is IMO. I also took the liberty of translating this text to French and German to see if the language translation would be too spacious - what do you think?
de/german - Loop die Dateiliste im Viewer
fr/french - Boucle la liste des fichiers dans l'Observateur


2. Pierre, It would be nice if you could also add a Loop setting for the 'Page list' of a file with pages. I always wondered about this in Xnview win but never thought to ask. I made the following picture to show you what it would look like;

Good suggestions, budz45.

What about a beep sound when "passing" the begin or end of the list? Plus an option to turn that sound off.

Thanks for those that agree with my idea.

If a sound was decided to be included for use during or at the end of a page list, then I would prefer a native Windows click sound like that on Vista/7
Windows Navigation Start.wav.zip
(11.07 KiB) Downloaded 113 times
(remove the '.zip' extension to listen)

Additionally, the sound feature can be added for the standard file list viewer also, when clicking, but disabled at default, of course.

Of course by default this tickbox option feature may be disabled by default or enabled by default if implemented into XnView MP?
