Re: Restore from maximized mode issue

Pierre, no - as for the best I can say... Since at least 2011 I installed every upgrade of XnView MP under Linux and Windows as soon as I got note of it, and I work with your wonderful software on a daily basis on both OSs. But I only realized that bug after I installed 0.60 under Win 7 - no such problems with the Linux version (0.60 under Ubuntu 13.04).

Edit: I almost exclusively use MP in a maximized Windows and only realized the problem when tying to change Layouts, which I do frequently...

So you choose a size for XnView, save Layout A
Maximize it, save layout B
And if you change between Layout A<>B, you have the problem?

Every "restore layout [X]" results in complete minimizing of a maximized window as shown in the screenshots abowe and a completely cluttered/destroyed layout... Even with newly created and saved (under .60) layouts in Windows. (As mentioned before: no problems under Linux...)

I can't reproduce :( on windows 7 x64. Could you send me the layout.dat (of your maximized state)??

Is it the way you use?
* start XnViewMP
* save layout A
* maximize, save layout B
* restore layout A => good?
* restore layout B => not good?

*Start XnView MP
*Maximize it & adjust the layout to your taste
*Save "Layout A"
*Restore "Layout A"

You can appreciate how the whole interfaz shrank, the max button is still activated and the frame is "unresizable"

Thanks, Pierre, for your careful instructions, I'm sorry for my rather belated reply - and no, it still doesn't work. :-( Every effort to restore a layout results in strange "window chaos" as indicated by Zheitk: At first the maximized window shrinks to about on third of the screen, the "reduce" button [English designation? I use the German version of Win...] is still there, and the window is not resizable manually anymore. If I click the mentioned button, the window finally shrinks to the size of playing card as show in the shots on this thread's first page. And if I click the "maximize" button (which is then there again) the window indeed maximizes - but with a completely cluttered layout.

And I also tried the Win-32-Bit version of MP .60 - the same problem (or at least very similar one, Im not sure at the moment) )...

This problem does not seam to have anything to do with layouts,
at least not for me in linux mint 15 32bit.

I deleted everything in the .xnviewmp folder
the .ini, .db, .bar and .key files,
so that it works like when i first installed xnview mp v0.61.

The unmaximized window size when it starts up is 856x647.

Image


The maximized size is 1920x1175,

Image


if i quit xnview mp while it's maximized, and start it again.

Image

The folder tree view on the left and the info/preview panel at the bottom,
seams to have already been resized down so that they will fit in the tiny window below.

When i unmaximize the window,
it resizes down to 223x388.

Image

It doesn't seam to remember the window size it had before it was maximized.

This appears to be the same problem as I posted in a new thread a few days ago:

http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=28510

I also posted to another existing thread sometime last year, on the same bug.

Form_resize events can be a pain, especially multi-platform :)

FYI: Why is there this problem, which in the version 0.64 looks like a dupe of this issue.
In the XnView Wiki, you can improve the user guide / documentation / F1-help for XnView (classic/Windows) and for XnViewMP
