Changing image info background in compare mode ?

Post by converter »

Hi there,I'm using XnViewMP Version 0.51 in Ubuntu Lucid 64,it is finally way more usable than the previous version 0.3.9 (still in the repo) which used to crash a lot:I'm now trying to set a different background color for the image info when in compare mode,as it's almost unreadable with a white background.For the normal image viewing I've found this setting in Settings-->View-->Info,but I haven't been able to locate a similar option for the compare mode.
If it isn't in the GUI,is there any config file that can be edited to change this background? It must be coded somewhere,after all :wink: and white really doesn't cut it IMHO.

Thanks for your reply:that's strange,because I have set that parameter to a custom color (red) which works fine in normal view mode,but reverts back to default (white) in compare mode.

If you find this useful,I've posted some screenshots to demonstrate the issue

View mode:

Compare mode:

Settings panel:

EDIT: I can see this exact same issue on two different Linux systems,Ubuntu 10.04 and Mint 13-on both systems I can change the background colour of the image info and changes are applied to full-screen view,but not to compare mode,where it is always white and almost unreadable.

Couldn't reproduce your problem (XnView MP 0.53 on Windows XP). Perhaps a problem that occurs in combination with dark theme, only?

Yes,exactly :!: I've just checked and it only happens with the Dark theme:is there any tweak in the .css style sheet for this theme that could eventually fix this issue ?

Cool. Now let's see whether Pierre or somebody else can find a tweak or solution.

Strange, perhaps a bug in 0.51, with 0.53 on windows no problem...
