Full-screen mode: open first file again after the last, etc.

Post by snow-snow »

Hello! Is there an option to “wrap around” while viewing all files in a folder using the full-screen mode? So that I go again to the first file after I viewed the last one, and likewise the last file can be viewed if I press the left arrow while viewing the first one?

In Tools > Settings | View | Misc. you'll find a setting "Loop on the file list". When activated, you can navigate endlessly over your list of files - once you reach the last file it will continue with first file and the other way round. This setting affects both image view mode and fullscreen.

However I just now realized that the setting somehow has no effect (although the checkbox is checked). I still cannot advance from the last file to the first one and vice versa.

Update: the behavior is the same as here. The option works until I look at the thumbnails bar. After I looked at the thumbnails, the wrap-around stops working.

There seems to be something wrong with the thumbnails that are shown in fullscreen mode: Even though formats are excluded in the file filter these excluded formats are shown as thumbnails in fullscreen mode (when moving the mouse to the top). And this seems to have other side effects like the broken wrap around at the start/end of the file list.
