Update folder content

Post by Troken » Wed Jun 23, 2010 8:00 am

At the moment XnViewMP uses Ctrl+R to update content in a folder. The ordinary XnView uses F5. Can XnViewMP use both Ctrl+R and F5 to update the content? When in Windows I always press F5 and many programs (regardless of OS) uses F5 to update, so I suggest XnViewMP uses it too.

Right, perhaps Ctrl+R is not needed, only F5. What do you think?

Is F5 standard in every OS or just Windows? I dont know. What is common in Mac and Linux?

Because XnViewMP is a multi platfrom software, it should have every update key for all platforms.

So then we should keep Ctrl+R and add F5, IMHO.

In most multi-os programs ctrl+R = reload.
Firefox for Windows f.e. uses both shortcuts, F5 and ctrl+R.
