Request: Ini tweak settings for advanced tweaker users

Post by budz45 » Tue Jan 31, 2012 1:14 am

Hello XnView forum,

Welcome to my topic of ideas/requests for:
Custom 'INI' file Tweaks for actions



==============================================================================
These ini changes would be entirely up to the user to make and would not be part of the Settings found in Settings dialog but still there 'under the hood' to use in XnView MP. :mrgreen:


----------------------------------------------------------------------


This ini code tweak would be to Always open the About, Batch Convert, Batch Rename - as tabs (no need to use Shift key).

Code: Select all

toolintab=true
(this would not affect the original 'Shift' key method)
----------------------------------------------------------------------


This is for the ability for thumbnails/icons displayed on a tab to 'shake' a little (an animation) upon single clicking on a tab just like what can be seen on Mac OSX launcher dock.

Code: Select all

tabdisplaydance=1
(they would be multiple variations of Tab's thumbnail/icon 'shake' with 1,2,3,4,5 for the ini all executing different 'dancing')
----------------------------------------------------------------------


This is for the ability to allow thumbnails on tab to turn 'Psychedelic color' (quick 2 second random Hue changes) on tab single click or tab re-arranging (would work for 'thumbnails' only but maybe tab 'icons' too).

Code: Select all

tabdisplayhue=1
(they would be multiple variations of Tab's thumbnail/icon 'fast Color changing' with 1,2,3,4,5 for the ini all executing different 'color changing')
----------------------------------------------------------------------

More ini tweak request ideas,




This could disable showing first-time Configuration wizard dialog, if the program has not been launched for first-time yet and a user creates a blank xnview.ini file :)

Code: Select all

configwiz=false
----------------------------------------------------------------------


This could hide the Browser for the entire XnView MP. Browser will work like normal sync'ing etc but would be 'hidden' and cannot be accessed (e.g. pressing 'browser' command or double-clicking on picture to display browser would all do nothing!) :)

Code: Select all

BrowserHide=true

----------------------------------------------------------------------


Ability to "Loop" during next/prev Page(s) navigation (of an Animated or Icon files)

Code: Select all

loopmultipage=true

----------------------------------------------------------------------


Ability to use full alpha Transparent background for Icon snapshots

Code: Select all

transnapshot=true
----------------------------------------------------------------------


This would display Filename header with File-path as text on the top of an Icon snapshot.

Code: Select all

infosnapshot=true
----------------------------------------------------------------------


Ability for the Capture tool to use a WAV, MP3 or OGG audio file to play the sound when a capture has been done. Audio file must first be placed in the XnView MP program folder and audio file must not be any larger than 1 MB. Sound would play for a maximum of 5 seconds (with a fade out) as a notification sound for "Capture"

Code: Select all

soundscreencapture=blahblah.ogg
In the future "Capture"dialog of XnView MP might even get an option to do this more simpler on the GUI. The ini option for "Capture" sound is quick, less intrusive and also good for Portable XnView MP users (the audio file will be in same program folder). :D


----------------------------------------------------------------------



Disable Shade selection - This tweak would make drawing a selection on an image in view mode just like XnView 1.9x (with no dark shade on non-selection)

Code: Select all

disableshadeselect=true

Recently implemented Ini tweaks announced for XnView MP 0.40 development:
[View]/highlightSelection setting for highlight selection in view mode

[General]/allInTab to always open About or convert dialog as a tab
So for example add the below under "[General]" in xnview.ini
allInTab=true

:wink:

Correct. Auto start of files does not make sense when the preview pane is not in use.
In 0.51, you 'll able to disable preview by adding in the .ini "[Browser]previewDisabled=1"
ref: http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.p ... 01#p104275 :)

===============================================

-----------------------------------
[Browser]/UseCompleter

this Ini Tweak would work in future to enable the Autocomplete function in Browser's path field.

General/hideMenuBar
In the xnview.ini this setting tweak can hide the menu bar. Only with XnViewMP 0.53 or later versions.

For the Database Cache Size one can go also to Tools | Settings | Database ... ;-)

But I agree, it is very indicated to have a point where someone will gather all the INI tweaks.
