Is there a way to change default zoom?

Post by AndrewKun » Thu Feb 06, 2014 7:45 am

How can I set default zoom to 100% in the viewer? Right now the default is fit to window size. I could do that in XnView classic, but in XnViewMP I looked all over the settings and can't find that option.

Hello, You can "lock zoom" at 100% first ...

How do I do that? I can press the hotkey (default *) to change zoom to 100%, but I need that zoom level to be default for all the pictures I open. How do I do that?

Thanks, I've done it using "Lock zoom" function in the context menu, which I didn't know existed there. I think this also shold be configurable in the "View" settings. Anyway, case solved, thanks for the help

This kind of works. Yes I lock it a 100%. For pictures smaller than the window this works perfectly, however for big high resolution pictures how can I make it be fit to screen (100% on high resolution picture) means you're really zoomed in.

So to recap:
picture < less than screen: make it 100%
picture > more than screen: make it fit to screen

How can I accomplish the above? Thanks.

I third this! Don't know why a viewer that taunts itself as the most advanced doesn't have this simple option!
