Changing shortcuts for 100% Zoom and Fit image to window in Viewer mode

Post by Sheldon_Cooper »

When viewing images, I often change the zoom to either 100% or Fit image to window. So far I've been using AcdSee and FastStone, where the default setting is:
  • Key / for view 100%
  • Key * for Fit image to window
I downloaded XnView MP v 1.6.1. but here by default these shortcuts are reversed:
  • Key * for view 100%
  • Key / for Fit image to window
I decided to change the settings in Settings, Interface, Shortcuts. Here I set:
  • Key / to display 100% (cmd_zoom100)
  • Key * to display Fit image to window (cmd_fitAll)
However, I found that these new shortcuts only work in Browser mode for the preview, and not in Viewer mode, where they remained unchanged.

It seems to me that it doesn't make sense to scale the preview in Browser mode. After all, you can't even drag the displayed part of the image with the mouse after zooming in, so you can only see the center of the image.

I think that preview images in Browser mode should always be displayed as Fit image to window, and that the shortcuts for zooming in on an image should be applied in Viewer mode.

Or am I doing something wrong and the shortcuts for Viewer mode are defined elsewhere than in Settings, Interface, Shortcuts?

Do you have changed them for 'Browser mode' and 'Viewer mode'?

My bad! I haven't noticed the drop down menu!

Thank you.
