req: propper keyboard behaviour (if used under m$ windows)

Post by loth » Wed Apr 12, 2006 1:24 am

hi,
as a keyboardjunkie,
i'd recognized the lack of xnviews compability to m$-windows keys/shortcuts.

just two single simple examples:

a)
-go to browser-mode
-press ALT-ENTER on a thumb. (file properties window will open)
-try to move through the tabs (file/image/exif...) with pressing STRG+TAB

it does not work :-)
the keys STRG+TAB behave like TAB only pressed.

on the other hand, SHIFT+TAB (going backwards) is working.

to confirm this: use m$-explorer, press ALT-ENTER on a file, press STRG+TAB




another example:

b)
-in browser-mode
-press CTRL+D (edit description)
-press TAB. (you'll move with the cursor to the "cancel"-button)
-now, press TAB as long as you like and try to go back to the edit-window, where you can insert text.

now, if you figured out, that it is impossible and pressed ESC, to close the window, follow this:

-in browser-mode
-press ALT-E (go to edit-menu)
-press M twice, or CRSR-UP twice, and then ENTER or CRSR-RIGHT to enter the "metadata" menu. select "set comment..." (while pressing ENTER)

TAB is workin fine in this menu.



unfortunately, the list of windows inside xnview where these "non-uniformities" occoure, is too long to mention.

will this be an issue to fix/make uniform in later versions of xnview?

so i could make a list of windows, but maybe this is a general problem and can be fixed very fast? i really hope so ;-)



EDIT:

if forgot to mention that mouse-issues are covered as well :-)

c)
-go to "batch convert" menu
-double-click on i.e. "Resize Canvas" (right list) to add it to the left list. result: nothing. you have to click the "add"-button.
-(if added via "add"-button) double-click "Resize Canvas" (now in the list on the right) and it will remove it from the list.

is there any way that we can help with fixing this inconsistent behaviour in consistent one?

i checked my steps to reproduce and it's still the same.
this makes it very unhandy to work with xnview the fast way.
