Back to browser from viewer with same set of image

Post by Gwenael Q. » Tue Sep 15, 2020 11:10 pm

Hello,

- When browsing images in a folder I can switch to view mode then switch back to browser in the same folder, wich is very useful
- When browsing images in a set of image (displayed as <DB result> or <search result>) (after a search, an "open file list", or Category filter) if I switch to view mode then switch back to browser then the browser is now in the folder of the active image and no more in the set of images. That's to say : the result of search, filtering, etc.. is lost.

Expected behaviour : when switching to view mode then going back to browse mode user should find again the same set of images.

I'm a bit surprised to find this annoying behaviour only now. I probably messed some setting and any help would be welcomed to recover a more satisfactory behaviour if the issue is me...

Thank you for listening.

XnviewMP 0.96.5 x64 on windows 8.1 x64

Hi,
Settings, Interface ...
Unmark "Synchronize browser when view is closed"

Aramando (user) said :

" If the "synchronise browser when view is closed" option is (...) disabled, then the view can be closed without losing the search results by closing the tab, either with the close button or Ctrl-W, but the usual method of switching between browse and view modes always loses the search results."

I understand that it depends on the method used to switch between view tab and browser ?

Thank you Michel038.

Your penultimate post didn't solve my problem but the last one is going on the right direction.
Since an (old) bug report already exist (the link you posted) about this issue, I will continue the discussion on that post.

Please note that I edited the initial description to indicate that ths issue is a duplicate of this one

Thank you for listening
