Border behind thumbnails. How to change size.

Post by brunoflores »

Hi all

Thanks again for the great piece of software. Been working for quite some time on PC, now I installed the MP version on my Mac.
My problem now is that thumbnails are too far apart from each other, and I can't seem to find a away to put them more together. Been around the options and the .ini file, no joy. I know the color is thumbackcolor. As seen on the picture with the blue arrows, I need to put the thumbnails more together. I'm working on a 27" screen with thumbs around 1800x900. In case you're wondering, is to check scanned pages of books, left and right.

Thanks a lot

I believe that width and height of the thumbnails need to have the same ratio as the book's pages.

Yes you're right. But that's not really the issue. You can see that even if you use the bar on the top right to change the thumbnail's size, that "backorder" always has the same ratio. The thing is, being small thumbnails or large, I want to completely remove this "backborder" and if needed control the others, like spacing and border.

I'm sorry. You're absolutely right. I was so messed up into putting to work Xnviewmp , when I was to acostumed to using the windows version, that I did't thought, even to see actually, that the height and weight of images, I was putting all the blame from the beginning in the change of hard/software. Thank you so very much, a real eye opener.
