Opened file from explorer - statusbar issue

Post by tedych » Wed Dec 04, 2013 8:04 am

There is a small issue with the information in the statusbar when an image is opened from explorer in the viewer. I have associated almost all image types to open with Xn. It's perfect when I open a file from Explorer to view, then I can close the window with Esc key.
But after the window is opened after doubleclicking a file in explorer, the statusbar doesn't show initially the "current/total" files in directory indicator. If I decide to look through the files in the directory in this window, this is a must. You know - the leftmost part of the statusbar "4/20" where 4 is the current file and 20 is the total number of image files in directory.
I got a workaround using a AHK script that performs a series of action in the window when it appears in the system - pressing Alt twice in this window is one workaround.

yes, it's normal. I check all files in the folder only when needed

Ok, and when is that "needed"? If I press Alt twice (effectively enable and disable the main menu), the indicator appears with the required information. I just came to that workaround by accident and used it in an .ahk script, so I can see the current position in the directory when I open a single image from explorer.
Eventually what I did want was to quit using at least one ahk script (I use many), but Ok, it is ok for now that way too.
