Is there a way to keep Filmstrip view as default for all type of view?
I noticed Filmstrip view switch to thumbnail view only when shortcut (G) is pressed, but not when I click the dedicated icon "Switch to On1Browse" on top right.
Sorry, I'm pretty new to On1 and I'm ...confused!
If the Filmstrip is visible in the Browser when you enter the Editor, it will still be there when you return to the Browser even if you press the G key. If it isn't visible when you start editing it will not be visible when you return by pressing the G key.0
Hi, Brian thx for quick reply!
Yes, everything work like You said, but only when I use dedicated software icons like: Edit, Switcht to On1 Browser, and so on...
Instead, if I press G on my keyboard filmstrip view disappears and switch to grid view.0
I tested this before I wrote my response. For me, if the Filmstrip is visible when I enter the Editor, it will still be visible when I return to the Browser regardless of the method used — Done button, pressing the G key, or clicking the Return to Browser widget.
You should be able to just turn it on and leave it on if that's what you want.0
In my case it switch to grid view when I use keyboard shortcut.
I will test on another PC and MAC too.
This might be a Mac/Windows difference. It shouldn't be but it is possible. Maybe Rick can test on his system once he's up and online.0
Uhm! ...I thought exactly the same thing! :-)
A data point for you - On my Win 10 machine If I am in edit with the filmstrip view and I press G I return to browse and it remains in filmstrip view.0
Was the Filmstrip on when you went into the Editor? That seems to be the difference for me. If it is off in the Browser and gets turned on in the Editor, then the G key will take you back to the Browser with it still off. It seems the Filmstrip state is not being preserved in this case.
I'll write up something for support and see what they have to say.0
Brian, Windows 10.
1: In grid view in Browse, select image and go to Edit. Turn on Filmstrip view in Edit. Press G and return to Browse and Filmstrip view still on in Browse.
2: In Filmstrip view in Browse select image and go to Edit. Filmstrip view remains on. Press G return to Browse Filmstrip view still on.
Behavior is the same on my Win 10 desktop and Win 10 laptop.0
Ok, now this is weird. When I tested this before I first responded it was not working that way. When I returned to the Browser with the G key it retained whatever state the Filmstrip was in when I started editing. It is not doing that now. Now, it is behaving exactly as you describe David. Which is the way it should behave. The Filmstrip's visibility should not matter to which module you are in nor to the manner in which you move from one to the other.
I'm at a loss now, sorry EDL.
Thx Brian, don't worry! ..I'm at loss too! :-)
I suppose is just a strange behavior with G key!0
All the viewing modes are clickable even when the shortcuts are blocked. Had reported this a while back...0
There is definitely some odd behavior in this area. Earlier today I reported several similar issues to support; see below.
[Working on EDL's report and Brian's follow up, I discovered a different scenario.]
-Start in Browse with Filmstrip view
-Switch to Edit mode
-Change from Filmstrip view to Detail view (in Edit mode)
-Change to Browse mode - Filmstrip view remains
-Change back to Edit mode - it is now in Filmstrip mode, which does not seem correct to me.
[I reported the following to support on 11/24/20. I was told this was expected behavior.]
I found a situation where switching between Browse and Edit can cause the setting for the View mode to be changed. This seems like it should not be occurring.
-I can switch back and forth between Edit and Browse, and Browse remembers which View was selected. But changing the View setting in one mode can cause it to change in the other mode.
-Say I'm Browsing my files with a Grid view in Browse. I then switch to Edit. In Edit mode, I select "Filmstrip view". When I switch back to Browse mode, it has been automatically changed to Filmstrip View (not expected behavior).
- Say I'm Browsing my files with a Grid view in Browse. If Edit mode gets changed to Detail view, when I switch back to Browse mode it is left in the view that it was in. (expected behavior)
- Say I'm in Edit mode with Filmstrip view selected. I change to Browse mode and change the View to anything other than Filmstrip view. Then Edit mode gets changed to Detail view (not expected behavior).
PR is sometimes forgetting (or intentionally resetting) what View it was in when switching between Browse and Edit. This does not appear to be desirable behavior.0
There's definitely some inconsistent behavior in how the Filmstrip gets handled when you toggle its state then move between the different modules. There are some rule though.
When you go into the Editor the filmstrip stays in the same state.
If you turn the filmstrip on while in the Editor it will remain on when you return to the Browser.
While the Filmstrip is on the View mode is always in Single view mode. When it is off the View mode is handled independently according to the user; you have to pick one to turn the Filmstrip off.
When Compare mode is on the Filmstrip is also turned on.
These conditions match the widgets you use to change the view state.0
