Can I change the currently selected thumbnail border format?

Post by XnViewOnLinux » Sun Mar 26, 2017 5:07 am

Is there any way to change the color or thickness of the line that surrounds the currently selected thumbnail? The default is a very thin blue line and when I look at my layout, Thumbnails ONLY (no filenames or labels) with 7 thumbnails across and 7 down, it's very difficult to locate at a glance.

As an example... I will shoot many photos of the same subject. Then I view them in XnViewMP on dual monitors with one monitor showing the images full screen. When I finally settle on a photo for further processing, I look to the other monitor with the thumbnails and sometimes I have to look at all 49 thumbnails to find the one with the blue line surrounding it.

As a temporary fix, I'm viewing Thumbnails + Filenames so the filename is highlighted in blue and is very obvious but I'd rather keep my thumbnail section limited to thumbnails only if possible.

other option is to edit the QT style sheets

The options in there seem to affect all thumbnails rather than the currently selected thumbnail.

How do I edit the QT style sheets? Is there a tutorial available?

btw, I think that the above topic should be marked as sticky...

EDIT: btw2: Another thing to look for is (I think) to try to change the thumb's background.
