Adding mousemodes!

Post by Stitscher » Mon Oct 09, 2006 6:21 pm

Hello!
Adding mousemode feature from Imagine would be great.

In the mouse settings you can add mousemodes and assign tasks to this.

You can switch between this mousemodes by pressing a button in menuebar

or by pressing the mousebutton you have assigned to that command [as I did (see first picture) by pressing middle mousebutton].

I like this feature a lot.
In conjunction with this suggestion it would be a great enhancement.

What do you think?

BTW: Imagine is a lister plugin for Total Commander (Plugin) also. ;)

Check "Mouse shortcuts" here.

You can make also custom mouse (and keyboard) shortcuts by HotkeyP, more here.

Thanks for your quick reply, Dreamer.

I know "Mouse Shortcuts". I can read help. ;)
And for creating shortcuts (mouse, keyboard) I use Autohotkey.
Thanks anyway.

The thing I was trying to point out is, why are these options so limited.
Try imagine and you will understand.
Look:

You can assign all this commands to every mouseshortcut you want. And with switching between different mousemodes, you have boundless possibilities. 8)


Impressive, isn't it!? :shock: 8) :wink:

I have the feeling that it would fit inside this major project: Keyboard/Mouse manager.
What you show look very nice... :P

Sorry, for not noticing this thread.

Exatly what I want.

Why doing it
- Currently keyboard/mouse actions are configured in XnView in 3 places- General>Switching modes, Browser>Open action (not directly), and View>Keyboard/Mouse. It would be nice to have them all in one place.
- Make keyboard/mouse operation really flexible- everyone will be able to suit XnView to his/her taste. Now this type of configuration is limited.
- No more discussion about changing some shortcut/mouse action.

Why doing it like this
- Great flexibility
- Clear interface- all in one place and simple to set up
- Should be not too hard to implement, just interface to some internal events table XnView supposedly uses now.
Nothing more to say.

What do you say, Pierre? ;)

Thanks, Olivier (and Xyzzy)

Regarding to the silence I can expect that there won't be a better Keyboard/Mouse manager in the future!?

Thanks, Stitscher

Obviously not for next v1.90... :|
The current focus is more on bugs and newly implemented features. But don't worry: I'll help push this a bit, later... :mrgreen:
