Anomalous Selection-Rectangle Previewing

Post by meteorquake »

This one is a bit odd.
I have a result list of 23 jpgs in details view.
If I drag a selection rectangle up from the bottom it will preview files as it goes until it previews the last manually selected item, and then cease to preview. That manually-selected item could be just an individual file or the last point set in a manual selection (a shift-click or shift-arrow). Change the manual selection again and retry a rectangle selection up, and the previewing will again just happen until the last manual point set.
This is certainly unexpected preview logic - you'd be wanting all the files to preview as you select up.

I'll look into showing the preview for the item under the cursor when you are actively masking a selection.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Everything 1.5.0.1338a will now preview the selected item closest to the cursor when using the selection mask.

Just curious,is this supposed to be normal or a bug
No matter from where you click and start moving the mouse,when you release the button,it will switch to previewing the file at the top left

Bottom=>move left=>when you release the mouse and it will preview the first file and that's expected
Start from the top left and move down or right=>when you release the mouse,it will switch again to the top left file

Thank you for the feedback vusb,

Everything is selecting the focused item after you let go of the mouse button.

I will look into keeping the last preview shown before the mouse button is released.

Everything 1.5.0.1339a improves which file is shown in the preview pane.

The preview will no longer change when the mouse button is released.
