Sounds good. I mailed their support to ask about portable versions, but it doesn't look promising.
Which makes me wonder about this here:

You know, MOBU could be enhanced to work on folders.
Show non-recursive folder contents..

Sure. How else?
Like outputs of the 'dump' mode of folderreport(), if possible.

Since this enhancement, MDBU "On right mouse down/Fit image to screen" works differently. If I move the mouse a bit, some part of the picture can slip out of the screen immediately. :roll: Earlier, even if I move the mouse holding the right button down, I could see the whole picture, because it stayed in place firmly. It was much more comfortable that way.

Code: Select all

v14.40.0319 - 2014-09-16 10:49
    * Mouse Down Blow Up: Now you can move around the blow ups even if 
      "Configuration | Preview | Mouse down blow up: | Shrink to fit" is ticked.
I think overall it's a gain.

Why to move if the full picture is intended to be shown on the screen? Hm... Maybe if I had 2 two monitors, and I would like to move the picture to the other screen? I can't come up with any overall gain, just this special one.

EDIT: I ticked the stay up, so now I don't need to hold my hand in place firmly. I am curious if it is worth the plus click to hide the preview.

Why?

1) To see anything covered by the blow up.
2) It confused users that they could not move it.

1. :shock: Just release the right button. MDBU is for inspecting the picture easily. Why to peek under it, when the picture is on the screen?? I don't get it.
2. I use XYplorer more then 3 years now continously, without any break. And I always thought, the reason behind the movable MDBU is that many times the original size of the picture is bigger than the screen, so one can inspect every part of it by moving. If I can see the whole, I don't need to move. If I would like to look under it, I release the button. But other people's confusion shows that I am wrong, what under the picture is is more "interesting" than the picture itself. :veryconfused: But in dual monitor environment it can be sensible, that's true.

Recently I had to check many pictures which were in folders named by the date taken. I also thought about MDBU on folders. Instead of the mere list of files, I would expect couple of small thumbnails on one page, as a quick peek into the subfolder's pictures. This can give hint about the content of the folder. (It could use the cache, if the thumbnails exist in that, so it could be fast.)

And what's a good reason against allowing to move? Shaky hands, okay.

So, anybody else with an opinion? Should shrunk-to-fit blow ups be moveable (recent addition) or not (like all the years before)?

I use thumbnail viewing quite a lot and at first I wasn't sure if I liked it, but now with right click "stay up" and "shrunk to fit", it's not bad really because you can get the best of both worlds. If I give it a quick right click it simply stays up center screen. Whereas if I right click and hold, it moves around so I could see other thumbs beneath if I needed to. I can see why others though that don't have stay up on right click set, may be a bit disturbed by the change. Though I'm fine and accustomed to the change, I'm not going to complain if you removed it. Yeah I know that doesn't help you much making a decision.

It helps because you described a good use case of it.

Well, to each his own:

Code: Select all

    + Mouse Down Blow Up: Added tweak ShrinkToFitNoMove to prevent shrunk blow 
      ups from being moved.
        ShrinkToFitNoMove=1
