Keep zoom factor after switching modes

Post by Rains »

Hi!
XnView resets the zoom factor to default after switching Viewer->Browser->Viewer modes. It resets it to "Auto Image Size" setting in "Options" even when "Lock Zoom" is enabled.
For example:
1. I browse some folder in Browser mode
2. Pick a picture
3. In Viewer mode change zoom to 60%
4. Enable "Lock Zoom"
5. Return (by "Esc") to Browser mode to pick another picture
Result: XnView opens it in Viewer mode and resets zoom factor to default

Is it possible to keep the zoom factor after return from Browser back to Viewer when "Lock Zoom" is enabled? ACDSee keeps zoom factor in the similar situation. It is very useful for viewing pictures with the same size in a folder randomly. Changing zoom factor every time for every new viewed picture is very annoying :(

Everyone agrees with that. 'Lock zoom' must works when view close & view reopened??

:) Hello !

• I agree whether it does stand for the two current INI options below :
LockZoomFlag=Flag
Image0 : The zoom locking is kept through the sessions (standard behaviour).
Image1 : The zoom locking is kept during the current session only (like in the old 1.8… versions)

Yes, exactly. Fullscreen mode close/reopened as well. ACDSee works with 'Lock Zoom' in exactly the same way

Thank you
