Full-screen behavior in 1.5 vs. 1.4

Post by The Foliator » Thu Jan 01, 2009 11:46 pm

In version 1.4, if I zoomed an image and panned to one side or the other in full-screen view, then navigated to other images while still in full-screen, each image would appear at the same changed zoom level as the first one, and panned to the same approximate area of the frame, as well. This was quite useful for comparing a modified file with the original, but the behavior seems to have disappeared in 1.5. Was it actually a feature of 1.4 or a bug?

Yes right, it has changed. So perhaps something like 'Lock zoom'??

Well, perhaps either that, or whatever originally caused the behavior could be restored. Would that be like converting a bug to a feature? ;-)

Before was a bug :-) Many users have problem with that.
I think to add 'lock zoom' in menu like xnview, is it ok?
