Zoomed Selection

Post by Digitaljan » Tue Dec 04, 2018 8:48 pm

When I make a Zoomed Selection, the wrong selection is selected. No matter what area I select it is generally a point in the bottom right hand corner that is shown on the navigation pane in the bottom right of the screen.
It used to work fine, suddenly it doesn't. Any ideas anyone?

I'm having this same problem. It seems to be worst on large images that are zoomed out.

I'm on Windows 10, on a 4K hidpi display. I recorded video of the bug occurring:

I've also attached my xnview config ini.

Any large image does this. If you want a large image, this is the one I used

I just had this issue too, on a UHD (4K) display laptop. Try going to Settings, View, and UNCHECK "Zoom on HiDPI screen: 1 image pixel equals 1 screen pixel." That stopped the problem for me. I'm using Version 0.96.5 64bits (Aug 17 2020).

Unfortunately, this workaround means that smaller images will not fill the whole viewer window without being zoomed in, so hopefully this can be fixed in a future update?

My Windows Display Settings Scale is set at 225%, in case that makes any difference (I doubt it because I didn't have the issue on a 1080p display scaled at 125%).

With Zoom on HiDPI UNchecked. Zoom works as intended. The image area in the viewer matches the area in the dotted box in the zoom box at the bottom right.

With Zoom on HiDPI checked. Look carefully at the zoom box at the bottom right - the area selected by the dotted line is all the way to the right of the picture but the viewer shows the left side of the picture. I can't move it any further down or to the right.
