Resized window and images

Post by KRH »

This problem has to do with working with resized windows. In my old version, 1.70, if I selected "fit window to image" in Options>View, when I changed the size of the view, the size of the window changed along with that of the image. Opening two or more image files, I was able to resize the view of either, move them about the desk top, juxtapose them, whatever. Now, no matter what setting I try (fit image to window, fit window to image, etc.), when I change the size of the image view, the size and shape of the widow remain the same, so that I can no longer freely juxtapose images. Am I missing something?

Edit: I neglected to mention that I'm now using ver. 1.80.2

Will do. I appreciated your help with my last problem. Is something known to be problematic with 1.80.2?

I installed ver. 1.80.3 but it didn't help. Is anyone else having the same problem? Any solutions?

I don't understand your problem, if i set "Fit window to image" & "force xnview to fit", when i open a picture xnview fit to this picture...

Yes, that also works for me, but that resizes the entire XnView interface, wrapping it around the image, on the Windows desk top or whatever else happens to be underneath. In both my previous installation, which was actually ver. 1.74, and the one prior to that, 1.37 I believe, when I set it to "Fit window to image", the window conformed to the shape and size of the resized image on top of the XnView desktop, which remained maximized. That was one of my favorite features. I have found a work-around: If I change the size of the re-sized image and then hit RMB + LMB, the window snaps to the shape and size of the image on the desktop. That works OK and I can live with it, but it's a little tedious and I wish I had the old behavior back. I tried downgrading again to ver. 1.74 but I am already hooked on some of the new features of the current version and I don't want to go back.

If this has become the default behavior, perhaps I should be posting in the Requests and Suggestions forum rather than General Support..

Edit: I should also point out in regard to using the solution of setting "Fit window to image" and "Force XnView to fit", I'm talking about working with several images at the same time.

I cannot recreate problem. I can adjust dimensions of multiple image windows and arrange them.
(Maybe saving old xnview.ini and using new one would help.)

I'm not sure that we're talking about the same thing. What I mean is that if I had an image open in view mode and clicked the resize button in the corner, and then resized the image up or down, any number of times, the window would automatically conform in size and shape exactly to the image without any intervention. Is that what you're talking about?
As for the .ini file, one of the things I've tried is removing all files and folders for the previous installation and cleaning the registry before reinstalling ver. 1.80.3.

I see a difference between versions (if this is what you are refering to).
Fit window to image; images not maximized.
In v.1.74, the image/child window shrinks and grows with zoom - / +.
In v.1.80.3, the image/child window does not shrink or grow with zoom.

Yes, that seems to be be exactly what I'm talking about. Where did you find that? At any rate, it was a feature I valued very highly and I hope it's restored in future versions. In the meantime, I guess I'll have to use the RMB + LMB trick.

Thank you. I love this program and I recommend it to people every chance I get.

And thank you, marsh, for precisely formulating the problem.

I apologize for bumping this thread but since I don't see any reference to this problem in the Bug Reports forum, I'm wondering if it has been offially noted as a bug anywhere.
