Select and cut with mouse

Post by hans-jürgen » Sun Apr 05, 2015 5:26 am

How do I select a part of the picture that I want to cut out now? Simple left-click and dragging a frame around the part I want to keep with the mouse does not work for me anymore compared to XnView Classic. Sorry if this has been asked before, and I'm on Windows 7 64bit using the latest v0.72 x64 of MP, necessary Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable has been correctly installed plus Update.

Sorry for my late reply, in the meantime I had found that setting myself and was happy to have the same behaviour for selecting a frame as in the classic version back. :) I think it should be mentioned in the thread about the differences between the versions, or maybe I have overlooked it. But it was quite irritating for me, as I often used it in the old version.
