Image opening full screen regardles of browser mode size

Post by sasko1 » Fri Jan 26, 2018 9:26 am

Hello!

I decided to add this under suggestions, since I'd really like to have this feature in XNViewMP. (hope I am not missing something and already exists :| )

When I open browser mode (not full screen) and I want to open image in Viewer, size of the image is the same as size of the browser. So no matter what I choose in Auto image size drop down, I am stuck with browser borders.
I'd like to have an option that if I open image from browser, regardless the size of browser, image opens in viewer in full size (expanded).

Is it and option to add this feature to this menu below?

pretty sure what you are looking for is
Settings > Interace > Switching mode
then change
browser <> viewer
to browser <> fullscreen | viewer <> fullscreen

Shadowpoer, thank you.

I am familiar with this feature, but I need viewer mode, not full screen since in full screen there is some lack of features, for example, can't see bottom toolbar, which is a must for me. That is why I use Viewer mode in full screen, and it is not covering bottom toolbar. (sorry my English is rubbish) :)

Have you looked at Tools > Settings... > View -- Info tab as a possible solution or temporary workaround?

You can customise the information displayed, position it bottom left, on one line, and also select the text colour...

cday, I am familiar with this, yes. But in Fullscreen view I really need Taskbar to be seen. Viewer mode is perfect for what I need, just the problem, that won't expand if Browser isn't, is bugging me. :)
Hope I can find a solution to this.

Oh, I see. :( Sorry for double post.

I guess it is out of options then. No worries, I'll just use full screen browser. Thanks.
