Option to pause GIF file

Post by dev/null »

A very useful feature would be the ability to pause GIFs.
Or/and option of moving GIF forward / backward

OK nice. Is there any keyboard shortcut for this? Or Can I create a shortcut to this option?

It works, but still no pause option. After using Start / Stop, the GIF always starts over
It would be great to have an option like pause

No no. I mean pausing the GIF at any time while it is running

My case:
I often record/play GIFs from tutorials with lots of detail or to show the issue in ticket in github repositories
So I would like to pause the GIF at any time to check current content etc. and then play the rest

In other words: something like listening to a song or watching a movie - you want to pause for a moment and then play the rest

By the way:

'Start/stop animation' should not reset animation, but restart at pause position

Oh, it doesn't work that way for me

Let me show you an example: https://i.imgur.com/wTeGeI4.gif
As you can see, after use "Start / Stop Animation" it start from beginning, not from pause position

The GIF I'm testing is available here: https://i.imgur.com/I6YnS0A.gif
