Fullscreen info: help needed.

Post by Gwenael Q. »

Hello,

Needing some insight about the fullscreen info settings.

- F12 > View > Info: What is the purpose of "Always show in fullscreen" ? How it combines with Fullscreen > Fullscreen > Show info ?

- F12 > View > Info: could someone give me an exemple of how to use "Html tags supported", please ?

- It is true that XMP metadata can not be used in the fullscreen Info or I am missing where to find them ???

Thanks for listening !!

When you go in fullscreen, if this setting is activated, the info will always be shown. Else it depends if you show it with 'I' key
- F12 > View > Info: could someone give me an exemple of how to use "Html tags supported", please ?

Code: Select all

<font color="LightBlue"> <b> [{File Index}] </b> </font> <font color="Yellow"> {Filename With Ext} </font> <font color="LightGreen"> ({Zoom}%) </font> <font color="Grey"> {Directory} </font>
<font color="red">{IPTC:Caption}</font>

You can now use XMP metadata

Thanks for replying, Pierre !

Happy to know that XMP metadata will be available for Fullscreen info.

That's not what I observe here. Info is not always displayed even if "always" option is activated. This option seems to do nothing. Even if it did, I think it should be removed because in contradiction with the setting "show info"...

Thank You

Hello Pierre.

I'm sorry but the option doesn't work.
I made a gif capture showing the issue but too heavy to be posted here (less than 3 Mb !)...

It would be great if bigger files were allowed in the forum.

Thanks for listening.

A file hosting service and download link?

When I registered in 2012 the limit was 256KiB... :wink:

One can use OBS for screen recording and attach video file to forum as archive.
Video codecs are slightly efficient than gif.

As far as I know it is not published, but I raised the issue of the attachment size limit, and later the permitted number of attachments per post, with a moderator some years ago.

So 2MiB and 8, unless there has been a change since then: ideally that information would be published somewhere, along with more general advice on attachments such as permitted file formats, but there is only one very busy developer and few volunteers on the forum.

Thanks i can reproduce. the problem comes from 'Settings>Fullscreen>show info'
This option seems obsolete because:
- 'Always in fullscreen' checked => info always shown
- 'Always in fullscreen' unchecked => info state is kept between session
??
