Keyboard shortcut to move back to List from Floating Preview

Post by Jerry » 09 Dec 2018 23:10

Hi,
Two questions:
1. I bring up a floating preview on an image, which gives primary window focus to the preview window. I then want to press a key to move back to the List with full window focus and control. What shortcut can I use to do that or what function can I bind to a key for doing that and have that work when focus is in the preview window?
I tried binding the Focus List function but it did not work.

2. Is there a way I can stay with complete focus and control in the List when bringing up a floating preview on an image?

I want to avoid having to click with the mouse to get back to the List from the floating preview, and use a keyboard shortcut instead OR stay in the List in the first place. And I want to keep the floating preview visible while in the list.

Use simple scripts...

1.

Code: Select all

focus "L";
As a user defined command (run script) and bind it to any key

You need to activate "Allow Custom Keyboard Shortcuts in Preview"
by right clicking in the preview Window and using "Advanced Options..."
in the context menu!

2.

Code: Select all

#178; focus "L";
and execute it to bring up the floating preview on the currently selected
image and return to the list automatically...
Rest = Same as above (udc, run script, bind it to any key)
One of my scripts helped you out? Please donate via Paypal or highend (at) web (dot) de
