Always show Info?

Post by Ihaveaproblem » Wed Oct 16, 2019 5:56 pm

Hi!

Is there a way to configure that the "Info" overlay is always displayed in an image viewing tab and in full screen? Each time I open an image from thumbnails, I must press the "I"-Key to display it.

Thanks!

PS: Also there is kindof a typo in the the response dialog for "Check for new version"... there is an open parenthesis:
(XnView MP is currently up to date

Thanks, but it wasn't added in 0.94, still have to press "I" very often on keyboard. I wish the Info would just always always show in Tab View or Full Screen View. 8)

Edit: The info overlay dissappears when toggling full screen with F11 and in some other situations.

No, it is not fixed in 0.96 :(

To reproduce, follow these steps:
* Double click an image thumbnail to open image viewer tab
* Press "I" to show info-overlay
* Press "F11" to enter full screen mode
* Info is still showing at this point
* Press "F11" to exit full screen mode
* Info disappears
* Must press "I" again to show info.

It should simply behave as follows (elaborating on my inital post):
Press "I" to show and always show info in tab view and full screen view even when toggling fullsreen on/off, closing tabs, opening new tabs, just always always show that info. Press "I" again to deliberately hide info, no matter if in tab view, full screen, closing tabs, open new tabs, etc., Info should no longer show.

Just like a light switch on the wall: On/Off.

There is no need for the new option added.

OK, nevermind, thank you for your time! There are more important concerns right now. 8)

It does not behave like I wished.
