Open with XnView goes fullscreen

Postby -g- » Fri Jan 28, 2011 1:03 am

I'm on Windows XP SP2. If I right click on an image and select Open with XnView, XnView will open the image and go automatically to full screen mode. I'm not sure if this the intended behavior; if it is, it would be nice to have the 1:1 button together with the 1:1 navigation thumb as in windowed mode ([EDIT:] I just noted that the 1:1 keyboard shortcut works in fullscreen). A close button to close XnView while in full screen mode would be useful, too.

Also, if you open an image with Open with XnView and press Escape to exit from full screen mode, if you then close the image tab instead of closing the window, XnView will open the Browser tab. I guess that's not what you'd expect to happen.

Finally, file associations in XnViewMP would be nice.

Thanks.

Oh, wow!. I totally missed those settings. Thank you.

It makes sense but, in the case I described, it kinda works contrary to it's neighbor setting Closing last tab exits XnView.

Can you expand on this?. I have administrative rights yet I can't find any file associations settings. I'd expect them to be under the Integration settings but in there there's just the Integration tab and it doesn't have any file association options. I'm running Windows XP SP2. In order to associate a file type to open with XnView I have to right click on it in Windows explorer and select Open with... and Always use this application for this file type.

The expected behavior for Closing last tab exits XnView would be that XnView quits regardless if the last tab is a browser or a viewer child window.
Is that what you mean?

Sorry, I linked to the wrong topic.
As of now (beta 0.35), the file type associations dialog known from XnView Classic is not yet implemented in XnView MP.

Yeah. As I said in the first post, if you open an image from the Windows explorer (using Open with..., for example), when you close the image tab (the only tab), you'd expect for XnView to close if the Closing last tab exits XnView option is selected; instead, the Browser window will open.

Oh, OK. I thought I was doing something wrong.

Thanks.
