Floating Preview Zoom level resets when updates occur elsehwere in folder

Post by Jerry » 18 May 2018 15:27

[Not sure if this is a bug exactly or an unfortunate side-effect, but it's a nuisance. The behavior is not new.]
Here's the use case: I'm viewing an image in floating preview that I have temporarily zoomed into so I can better read the text. In another program, I am editing the contents and/or names of other files in the same folder, based on the text I'm seeing in the zoomed image. When I save any changes to those files from inside the other program, the zoom level in the floating preview automatically resets to the default zoom. So I end up having to view the image with a separate viewer to avoid this reset.

It sounds like just an Auto-Refresh action, you can suspend auto refresh temporarily with Ctrl+R or

View | Suspend Auto-Refresh

or add the toolbar button, while you are performing the renames.

Yes, auto-refresh does seem to be the cause of the issue. Thanks.

You could right-click the image in FP and tick "Lock Zoom" to handle this, but I made it work even without this in the next version. So you can just wait for the next beta. :)

Good to hear, Don. Thanks.

Thanks for the fix in v18.90.0132. I just discovered another variation of the issue (using 19.00.0002):
When I pop up and rename the parent folder containing the viewed image, all in XYplorer, the image zoom setting reverts as in the other situation.

(Renaming a parent folder based on information I am seeing in an image within is another typical use case. For example, renaming an album folder based on information in the image of the CD case or page in the booklet.

Confirmed. But I decided it's too minor to add a workaround (which would be pretty complex).
