Old Layout Issue Remains

Post by JohnFredC » Tue Mar 04, 2008 1:59 pm

XnView 1.93 b2 still does not remember the "expanded" properties splitter position (at least for layout 7) if the properties panel is collapsed when XnView exits.

Hi Pierre!

Here is how to reproduce the error:

1. Display Layout Seven.
2. Display Browser showing Thumbs and Preview
3. Adjust Preview splitter to desired width: Image 1
4. Hide Preview by clicking splitter button: Image 2
5. Close XnView
6. Reopen XnView
7. Show Browser (Thumbs will appear)
8. Display Preview by clicking Splitter button
9. Voila! Image 3

The problem appears to be that XnView forgets to save the Preview splitter position if the user closes XnView while the Preview is collapsed.

Hope this helps you find the bug. I can't emphasize enough how aggravating this behavior is.
John

This issue appears to be fixed in 1.93b3. I have tested the behavior several times and looks like we can put it (finally!) to rest.

Thank you, Pierre. This has been a big deal for me.
