Use of 2nd display/monitor cannot be disabled!

Post by Farbauti » Fri Dec 31, 2010 12:51 pm

Hello there,

I'm using XnView 1.97.8 on Win XP SP3.

For some time I found it quite nice to have the XnView browser on one monitor and a fullscreen preview on my 2nd one.

Now I want to disable this feature, but XnView won't let me!
I can uncheck the Options>view>fullscreen>Dual Monitor,Use second monitor (browse & slideshow)
But the 2nd monitor still shows the current picture. And when I exit and restart XnView, the same option is checked again.

I tried saving the options to the registry and to the ini file: Always the same behavior :(
The ini files switches to
[Full]
BackColor=0
DualMStretch=0
DualMUse=1
all on it's own.

Please help.

Best regards, Farbauti.

Mais dans les options la case est bien aussi cochée.
Je ne comprends pas pourquoi cette case se coche automatiquement maintenant.

[Edit] Ah tiens, elle ne se recoche pas.
Bon, je vais remettre tous mes paramètres au fur et à mesure et voir ce que ça donne.

[Edit2] Ok, il y a une option dans la section [Browser] qui entre jeu dans le problème, je vais chercher laquelle.

[Edit3] Ah ben voilà, j'avais oublié cette option tout bêtement : FullPreview=0 Si elle est à 1, ça remet DualMUse=1.

Hallo,

mein Französisch ist nicht besonders gut, aber ich habe verstanden, wo der Fehler lag.
Jetzt funktioniert alles.

Merci beaucoup ! :)

Salut, Farbauti.

For the English speakers:

This is dependent on the Browser settings and the setting will revert if you don't change it elsewhere.

To disable use of the 2nd monitor, go to Tools/Options, then under Browser/Preview, you'll see "Use fullscreen on second monitor for previewing".
Disable this setting first, and then you can permanently disable View/Fullscreen/"Dual Monitor, Use second monitor (Browser & Slideshow).
