Pressing ESC Once Quits (despite setting)

Post by metal450 » Wed May 01, 2019 5:22 am

XnViewMP 0.93.1 64bit on Win10.

With Settings->Interface->Keyboard->Pressing ESC once quits XnViewMP set to "Never," if I double-click a jpg (to open it in the viewer), then press ESC once...it quits.

Note: the bug doesn't exist in "browser mode," where pressing esc won't exit the software - it only happens in "view mode."

the problem is that ESC close tab, so what should happened? In browser mode, it returns to browser

If the option is set to allow ESC to quit, then it makes sense that it would quit;
If the option is set not to allow ESC to quit, it should just do nothing (aka leave the last tab/viewed-image open). This is how the similar option behaves in IrfanView, for instance.

i've tried to reproduce, but i can't. Do you use Settings>General>Mode when starting - 'Fullscreen - viewer'?

Sorry, I don't understand the question - under Tools -> Settings -> General, I don't see any instance of the word "Mode".

I think the setting referred to is:

Tools > Settings > General -- General tab --Startup -- Mode when starting with a file [Normal, Fullscreen - Viewer, Fullscreen - Browser]
