Keyboard shortcuts in slideshow

Post by Dreamer »

Could you add these shortcuts to slideshow (*.sld file) please?

Numpad /
Numpad *
Numpad -
Numpad +

...Perhaps also other shortcuts should work (Ctrl+Numpad /, Numpad 8, 4, 5, 6, 2...).

This shortcut would be also very useful:

Enter and middle mouse button to open all images from slide show in browser (and select the current image)

Perhaps it might be considered as a bug, since few shortcuts are working.

For me? Definitely. I have created few slideshows, with many images (few thousand) and I want to zoom the image sometimes - also I need to edit, move, or delete image, so Enter to show the current image in browser would be very useful for me (it's really hard/almost impossible to find the image manually)...

...Don't know what other users think :?:

About the slideshow shortcuts, for me:
Yes for this:
Numpad /
Numpad *
Numpad -
Numpad +

Why not for this: (Ctrl+Numpad /, Numpad 8, 4, 5, 6, 2...).

No for this ( "Enter" is a too usual(simple) key, for common users - and it can be confusing with the stop/start function key "space"):
Enter - to show the current image in the browser, in its original location.
But I agree for a shortcut like : (Crtl+Enter) or (Alt+Enter) for this function, why not ...

Hmm.. I think Enter is perfect key for that...

Escape - to escape/exit
Space/Pause - to pause
Enter - to enter the browser

Enter key works the same also in xnview - fullscreen > browser.

IMHO, the only definitive solution is a feature allowing the user to set his / her own shortcuts,
like that exists in TC and many others…

- Needs a general view of the commands, instead of a continual ant-steps patching ! :(

I agree with the custom shortcuts, of course, but we still need default ones, so I'm curious - which shortcut would be better then Enter?

First post has been updated. New suggestions added:

Enter and middle mouse button to open all images from slide show in browser (and select the current image)

I am not using the browser mode of XnView at all. I have Ztree for selecting the files. But it seems that the only way to get the selected files into XnView is the command line parameter -slide which starts a slide show. Unfortunately, within this mode I don't have zoom and pan keys available (I can't think of any reason for this, why is this restricted?). So I would realy like to have them available.
