0.83: Behaviour of "Single view for multi-opened files"

Post by helmut » Mon Oct 24, 2016 8:23 pm

In topic ** English - English the translation of the setting "Single view for multi-opened files" of XnView MP was discussed.

For a good translation its important to understand what the software does. So XnTriq has investigated the feature and I continued these investigations. The result is:

XnView Classic 2.36: Setting: "View > View > Open only one view for multiple files (startup & drag&drop)"

1a - Browser, multiple files selected. Open action triggered by pressing "Enter" key:
Setting has no effect. Only one tab is opened and you can navigate through the previously selected files.

1b - Browser, multiple files selected. Open action triggered by pressing Ctrl+O:
Not available. (Shortcut Ctrl+O opens "Open picture" dialog).

1c - Browser, multiple files selected. Open action triggered via "Open" context menu:
Setting has no effect. Only one tab is opened and you can navigate through the previously selected files.

1d - Browser, multiple files selected. Open action triggered via "Tools > Open" menu:
Setting has no effect. Only one tab is opened and you can navigate through the previously selected files.

2 - Start up (e.g. "Send to > Open in XnView" context menu in Explorer):
On: Only one tab is opened and you can navigate through the sent files.
Off: Multiple tabs are opened, one for each file.

3 - Drag & Drop (e.g. Drag & Drop from Windows Explorer to XnView in View mode):
On: Only one tab is opened and you can navigate through the dragged&dropped files.
Off: Multiple tabs are opened, one for each file.

XnView MP 0.83: Setting "Interface > Interface > Single view for multiopened files"

1a - Browser, multiple files selected. Open action triggered by pressing "Enter" key:
Setting has no effect. Only one tab is opened and you can navigate through the previously selected files.

1b - Browser, multiple files selected. Open action triggered by pressing Ctrl+O:
Setting has no effect: Multiple tabs are opened, one for each file.

1c - Browser, multiple files selected, then "Open" action using context menu:
Setting has no effect: Only one tab is opened and you can navigate through the previously selected files.

1d - Browser, multiple files selected. Open action triggered via "Tools > Open" menu:
Setting has no effect. Only one tab is opened and you can navigate through the previously selected files.

2 - Start up (e.g. "Send to > Open in XnView MP" context menu in Explorer):
- not tested because there's no such menu entry -

3 - Drag & Drop (e.g. Drag & Drop from Windows Explorer to XnView in View mode:
On: Only one tab is opened and you can navigate through the dragged&dropped files.
Off: Multiple tabs are opened, one for each file.


The basic features of XnView Classic and XnView MP are supposed to work the same way, so there are two bugs:

Bug 1 - Ctrl+O in XnView MP triggers different action than in XnView Classic.
Bug 2 - XnView MP: Ctrl+O triggers different action than "Open" context menu / Enter key / "Tools > Open" menu

It's the same trigger, but there is an issue, when using CTRL key, each file will be opened in a separate tab. So when using Ctrl+O, CTRL is detected :(

@Pierre: Is there anything you can do about this? If not, I'll move this bug report to "Postponed".

Posting primarily to "bookmark" this thread, as it relates to others I'm participating in, but I've been bothered by this behavior as well. It seems that if using the Ctrl key breaks it and therefore precludes this option from applying to the use of this shortcut, that should be indicated next to the option to prevent confusion.
