I find it hard to believe that no one sees this problem, whether or not you care.

The cross-hairs cursor only appears when PMView is called from the command line:

PMVIEW SOMEIMG.JPG

Otherwise it's a standard cursor.

When the cross-hairs are visible, any access to the right click menu changes the cursor to the standard arrow and it stays that way.

It's infinitely repeatable.

This is the 64-bit version of PMView. I don't have the 32-bit version installed.

Here is the scenario, using PMView 64-bit in Windows 7:

- Image is displayed and the cursor is crosshairs (+).

- A portion of the image is delineated. The cursor works as it should, changing as the borders are adjusted to double arrows, etc.

- The delineated part of the image is copied to the clipboard or cropped using the right click menu.

- The cursor changes to the standard arrow.

- Other areas of the image can be delineated and copied, but the cursor no longer changes. It remains as the standard arrow.

- Using PgUp or PgDn to move to the next image does not change the cursor, which remains as the standard arrow.

The only way to get the crosshairs back is to exist PMView, and recall it.

I'm currently running PMView 3.77, but this is a long-standing problem. I can live with it, though. I've been using PMView since the OS/2 days.

I should add that any access to the right click menu changes the cursor to the standard arrow and it stays that way. Copying a delineated part of the image using Ctrl-C does not change the cursor. Possibly the problem is caused by the right-click menu.

The easy way is to use the group policy editor (run gpedit.msc) and navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer and ENABLE "Turn off numerical sorting in Windows Explorer".


Thanks for this explanation. I've used PMVIEW since the first version for OS/2 so everything has become intuitive. The change caught me by surprise. I'm back in my comfort zone.

Thanks again.

The mouse wheel moves through the file list and I'm sure many people like that, but I find myself sometimes trying to use the mouse wheel to scroll an image thats larger than the screen. It's intuitive to me that the mouse wheel is an alternative to the scroll bar.

If it's not a major project it might be nice to have an option in Preferences to choose between alternate uses of the mouse wheel.

Try to uninstall PMView, then reinstall. This should reset your settings.


That worked. I lost my preferences, but I'm back in business, and that's what's important.

Thanks.

This happened suddenly. It was working and then it wasn't.

Letter/pillar box is checked. I never use that option, but it's grayed out and cannot be unselected.

Keep proportional is also grayed out and can't be selected.

Resample pixels is active and can be selected or deselected.

I use the resize dialog constantly, many times a day. I used it earlier today.

I was running version 3.72. Reinstalling didn't help. I then downloaded and installed 3.74 but that didn't help either.

I have no idea how this happened or how to fix it.

I've found an answer to my problem by searching the web. It seems that 64-bit applications cannot use 32-bit twain drivers and virtually all twain drivers are 32-bit, even if the actual scanner drivers are 64-bit.

I guess I'll have to wait for Canon to release 64-bit twain drivers. I won't hold my breath. In the meantime I'll have to make do.

Everything runs noticeably faster on a 64-bit system and I'll never go back to 32-bits. smile.gif

I finally made the jump from XP to Windows 7 64-bit.

I installed PMView 3.64 64-bit and everything works fine, except I cannot acquire from my Canon 8400F scanner, which also has new 64-bit drivers.

Neither the Select Source nor the Acquire menu choices do anything when I click on them. I confirmed that TWAIN_32.dll is in the Windows directory.

Other programs, such as the Canon Toolbox, Pixwizard, and Photoshop Elements, use the twain driver with no problem, so I don't understand why PMView, doesn't. I use PMView constantly, so it's a little inconvenient to have to use a different program to scan.

After loading multiple images via a wildcard to crop them in 3.54, the graphic cursors are lost after the first image -- at least on Windows XP.

The scenario: Load multiple images using a command line wildcard. For the first image the crosshair cursor displays and after selecting an area, the cursor changes to double-pointed arrows at the handles. After saving the modified image, use PgDn to move to the next. The standard Windows arrow cursor is displayed and never changes.

Cropping continues to work, but on some images it's difficult to see the handles so the double-pointed arrows become very important.

It worked correctly in 3.51 before I upgraded.

As further explanation I'm uploading some captures.

When I try to capture a Firefox window, PMView always grabs the entire desktop as in the first screenshot. Here I clicked at the top of the window.

I've determined that when I click on the window affects the corruption during the instant capture. In the second screenshot, I clicked in the middle of the window.

On the last screen shot with the worst corruption, I clicked on the bottom of the Window.

I'm wondering if this is related the PCIExpress, because my previous video card was AGP and captures worked as they should.

With my old AMD Sempron motherboard and an ATI All-in-Wonder AGP video card, I had no trouble capturing a Firefox window.

About a month ago, I changed both motherboard and video card. Since then I can't capture a Firefox window. Instead I get a capture of the entire screen. Also, sometimes the contents of the Firefox window is shifted down and to the right, with a wide black border at the top and left side. The Firefox window is restored as soon as it regains focus.

Here's the skinny on the new hardware: ASUS P5N-E motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, PNY nVidia GeForce 8600 GTS video card using a PCI Express 16 slot.

When I first changed the mother board, I installed a Diamond ATI 2600XT video card. I wasn't happy with that card and replaced it a few days ago. So the video card is not the problem.

I rarely capture windows other than from Firefox, but I made a few tests and I was able to capture a folder window and a DOS window. There may other applications where PMView dsplays the same symptom, but I don't know about them.

I did not reinstall Windows XP after the upgrade, I used only the Windows repair facility. PMView (version 3.51) was not touched.

I hope somebody has some idea about what is going on here.
