View Image or Media files
« on: July 26, 2011, 09:31:15 »
Any hints on how to get a preview of an image file when pressing "F3"/ File -> View? Is there some way to link certain file types to an external viewer (like irfanview) like the file editor - but for read only viewing?

Right now it is not possible to configure external viewers for F3/view.
A workaround is to configure Edit to use a external picture viewer and use edit as view.
Another workaround is to define a user command that open the selected file with an external viewer and then assign a hotkey for that command.

A built in picture viewer and configuration of external viewers is something that is very high up on the todo list.
