dual monitor fullscreen problems

Post by lorenznl » Tue Dec 25, 2018 7:46 pm

Hi, im using XnView MP Linux 0.92 on openSuse Leap 15.0.

No matter if 'Dual Monitor: Use second monitor' is checked or not, the full screen view always opens on the monitor XnView starts on.

For example:
- XnView main window last used on the left monitor.
- When restarting XnView the next time, it will show up on the left monitor again (as expected).
- Fullscreen view opens on the left monitor too.
- Move XnView main window to the right monitor (without closing it)
- Fullscreen view will still open on the left monitor.

As I don't expect that to be a feature, it must be a bug :-)

Or do I misunderstand the setting?

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!


PS. sorry for the duplicate post in 'Classic - General Support'. I somehow landed there after login.

I have this problem often, I saw on this forum you can turn this off by hitting F11 , but it just turns it off for the selected image, if you navigate to another image, it will go fullscreen again.
When I turn off dual monitors in the settings, this setting comes back on.
