Esc button for stopping current action

Post by thire » Sun Oct 16, 2005 5:26 pm

Sometimes XnView is very slow (selection or creating thumbs of big files, of raws, ...). Please give us an esc button to stop the ongoing calculation of thumbs and so on, so that I can do something else...

Actually this was my biggest wish I posted in this forum. Perhaps my pictures are too large, but speed is XnView is someties a bit slow. This will help. Thanks a lot for this answer! :)

Pressing 'Esc' key for stopping an action is one thing, but even more important is that the current action is automatically stopped when starting a different action.

:) Hello !
…Please give us an esc button to stop the ongoing calculation of thumbs and so on, so that I can do something else…
- Instead to resign the current operation with an "Escape / Abort" button, why not a feature allowing to switch the (slow) current job in the background (in another thread… ) ?

- Hence, you could continue another job with XnView, while the slow job is done "silently" …

¤ Pierre, is it possible ? T.C. works in that way for many functions.

:mrgreen: Kind regards,

:) Hello Thomas !

- An old good drudge :wink:

• Indeed, any TC-User gets this in mind… although I use the "Background" with moderation in TC, just for copy and pack sometimes. I have not big needs…
- Thank you to highlight this logical solution; I wonder that XnView have not any possible "Background" operation till today…
