Are my settings off?

Post by ristretto6 »

I have XNView installed on two different computers, but the user experience on each is completely different. The 2 major problems I'm having right now are:

1) When I open a file (i.e. hit Enter while I'm scrolling through the gallery view), it does open full screen, but then I can no longer use the left/right arrow keys to navigate from one photo to the next

2) Even though I have the Preview Pane open, no videos ever seem to play, whether I just scroll through them, or even if I try to open them by hitting Enter.

Are there some settings I need to tweak in this installation in order to make these two things work?

Thanks!

If you hit F11, are you able to use left/right arrow? what do you have in Settings>Interface>Keyboard?

No, when I hit F11, it goes to fullscreen mode but nothing else changes--not able to use the left/right arrow keys.

When I go to Tools-->Options, these are the settings for Keyboard/Mouse:
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Your display is different from mine, you are using XnView MP not XnView Classic?

In 'MP Tools > Settings... > Interface -- Keyboard tab 'Left/Right' should be set to 'Previous/Next file' to be able to step through images in a directory.

I hope that is not creating confusion!

Oh, interesting. It actually also looks different from the installations on my other laptops which seem to work fine. So which should I be using, XNView, or XNView Classic?

XnView MP is the future, so if you are starting probably best to install that... :D
