b2: Maximize view when open problem

Post by Xyzzy » Tue Dec 27, 2005 2:23 pm

Hello!

If Force XnView to Fit Image is checked, Maximize view when open does not work.
If Force... is checked and Maximize... is not, image is opened in maximized window, should not.

Remember, that this option (Maximize...) works only for windowed View run directly from Windows.

Tabs and windows don't work too well together yet. Does it happen with tabs completely disabled?

It works improperly also if 'Hide tab if only one window is opened' is checked.

This options (Maximize view when open) should be removed if it cannot be made to work.

I disagree. Remember that XnView is an MDI application. "Maximize view when open" does nothing else than maximizing the child window when opening an image view. This works o.k. and in no case must be removed.

Problem is that it is always maximized.
So an option to turn off maximizing is useless.

Right, for most people child windows are always maximized. But there might be people still using MDI and it's child windows and working with non-maximized windows. Not sure, though.

As far as I know this option only affects only windowed View run directly from Windows. It does not affect opening from Browser.

So it can be removed, as View opened from Windows is always maximized.

Please try this and you will see that it does not affect windowed view run directly from Windows:

1. Uncheck option "Maximize view when open"
2. Un-maximize XnView browser
3. Double-click on a thumbnail to open image view
--> Window for image view is opened, non-maximized.

Helmut, but there is no damn hint anywhere that I have to restore Browser window for this to work. Another development problem made a part of "design"...

With regard to http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?t=4311 I Close this one.
