XnViewMP Dual Monitor

Post by cpt.shit » Mon May 16, 2011 6:44 pm

Hi there,

I'm new in this forum, but I use XnView under Windows for ages. What I love is the possibility to use two monitors. One of the main reason, why I didn't switch to Linux...

With XnViewMP, this problem could be solved. But I can't find the option to use two monitors like view XnView 1.9x.

Am I blind or does this function follow in a previous version?

Just do it! It's a killer feature!

Thanks for your great work and time you are spending on XnView!

Henrik

from browser: view> fullscreen / F11 / middle mouse button :
All opens the full screen viewer on my second monitor.(no matter on which display the browser window stands - IMO this needs fixing to open on the 1st monitor if browser stands on 2nd monitor)

from viewer view: view> fullscreen / F11/ middle mouse button:
All opens the full screen viewer in the current display (the one where the viewer window is)

I believe none of this is currently documented, and you can easily end up with 2 full screen viewer on your 2 displays one opened from the browser (2nd display) + one opened from viewer on 1st display.
but it works fine, and fixing the fullscreen's target display when browser view is on 2nd display should provide good enough flexibility without resorting to develop more refined system like ie: Lightroom (n display icons to activate displays + drop down letting you choose what get displayed on each monitors)
Yet IMHO this kind of feature deserve to be pushing to the front ui somehow.
