Change the color of the frame arround selected thumbnails

Post by slideray »

I would like to change the color of the frame, that appears around the selected thumbnails in general view mode (Browser). The frame that by default consists of a blue and white outline.

In the setup instructions, I found a parameter that should be responsible for this setting - "SelBorderColor", but no matter how I tried to specify its value in "xnview.ini" nothing has changed.

Tell me, is it possible to change the color value or is it an immutable parameter? It may be possible to remove this frame altogether, since it is enough to highlight the thumb caption.

This is the XnView MP Linux
Version 0.94.2 64bits (Dec 20 2019)

Unfortunately, we are talking about different things, you are talking about what I have in the screenshot is marked with red and blue, while I mean a frame of white and blue:

Changing the color of this border is currently not possible.

...at least for the more important part :wink:
I'm gonna look if I can find out to change the blue border around the folder/picture but takes some time I guess. I hope Pierre can make the whole thing as a user-friendly setting in the future.
