Topic: Suspend thumbnail-building when opening files in view mode

Views: 590

It looks like when a picture is opened the thumbnail creation goes on. I`m seeing a progress bar progressing in the lower right corner. I think that indicates the thumbnail building. What gets on my nerve is the bad responsiveness but maybe that is not XnView`s fault because: I just checked for the ...

HUD windows: black, transluscent (links to source code+pics)

I`d love XnView to have that dark HUD window look.

An alternative idea how to do the zooming: The user clicks and holds LMB (left mouse button) while the pointer is on the preview picture in the browser. The (still holding the LMB) he/she drags the mouse away from the prview picture and as a result the preview picture will zoom bigger, following the...

Rating in full screen mode

This is an important feature for me. It could be realized using hot edges that make extra functions visible. Moving the mouse pointer to a specified corner or edge of the screen, a panel could pop-up showing the current rating (maybe other things like filename and meta data can be included in the sa...

Preview in browser: OS X dock-like zoom when pointer is near

Sorting/rating/deleting/browsing pictures to me always takes place in fullscreen mode (rating is not yet possible there, is it?) because in browser view I find the preview too small. I could increase it`s size but then the space for thumbnails would then be too small for my taste. So this proposal c...

Small Transport (play,stop-button & progress bar) for mo

The transport field (start, stop, pause buttons, progress bar) for movies in the preview field of the brwoser takes more space then necessary, really. I would prefer if it would be more minimalistic like the transport field of web-embedded quicktime movies: http://www.gearwire.com/media/logic-pro7-l...

Deleting many files take a lot of time / trash-folder in XnV

Since I delete *a lot* of files I`m a bit impatient waiting until XnView is finished deleting: Whenever I delete files I have to wait until the files are delete before I can continue browsing. While it may not seem much of an issue having to wait 1 second to delete a single picture, it becomes a rea...

Suspend thumbnail-building when opening files in view mode

Another thing I noticed regarding responsiveness with XnView is that building thumbnails when opening a folder takes a lot of CPU power and while that is progressing XnView reacts very slowly. This is mostly an issue if there are movie files in the folder. Therefore I don`t use XnView for movies any...

movie-screenshots: fixed number of shots for mutliple movies

The most important for me is the screenshot tool "extract film frames" (I use the german version so I`m not 100% sure what the english name of the funtion is). This feature could save a lot of time if it would work a bit smarter. What it does is extracting all frames in the movie file which takes a ...
