This section describes the options presented under the Windows Tab of the preferences dialog.
This will maintain windows size and position between Geeqie sessions.
A new window opened by menu File ▸ New Window ( Ctrl+N ) will use the saved window positions also.
Maintains the selection set by View ▸ File and Folders ▸ Float File List ( L )
The main window will be resized to accommodate each image's size and proportions when the image pane is the only one visible within the window.
This will restrict the maximum size a window can grow to automatically fit an image. The value represents the percentage of the desktop size in width and height.
Selects the location and position of the full screen window. 'Determined by window manager' will leave the window placement up to the window manager. 'Active screen' places the window on the same screen as the Geeqie main window. 'Active monitor' does the same, but limits the full screen window size to the monitor containing the main window. The remaining choices are dependent on the multiple monitor configuration.
This option delays the image change in full screen until the next image is entirely decoded into memory, the result is a smoother transition between images.
This option will execute xscreensaver-command --deactivate once per minute to avoid the screen saver from activating when Geeqie is displayed full screen.
The contents of the Overlay Screen Display is defined by the Image Overlay Template. This template is easily customised to display a wide range of data.
The format of each entry is:
|name||Filename of the picture|
|collection||Name of the collection|
|number||Current number of image in the list|
|total||Total number of images|
|keywords||Image keywords from metadata|
|comment||Image comment from XMP metadata|
|imagecomment||JPEG image comment|
|<meta_tag>||The Exif, XMP, or IPTC tag from metadata|
|lua/<lua_script>/||The output of a Lua script file|
|lua//<lua_command>||The output of a Lua command|
As an aide, in addition to standard metadata tags, Geeqie provides a number of pre-formatted tags .
Examples of usage are:
%keywords% %Exif.Photo.DateTimeOriginal% %lua/jpeg_comment.lua/:12% %lua//return(os.date())%
Refer to Lua Extensions for further information.
The length of displayed data can be limited by using the :max_length parameter. The following example will truncate the displayed data to 20 characters and will add 3 dots at the end to denote the truncation.
If two or more variables are connected with the | character, the variables are displayed with a separator. For example::
"1/20s - 400 - 80 mm"
"1/200 - 80 mm"
If there is no data for a requested tag, the line is not displayed.
The :extra parameter may be used to format the output by prepending and appending a text string to the displayed item.
The special character * is used to mark the position of the Tag data item. If no * is present, the extra string is just appended to the standard data displayed. Any "\n" is replaced by a newline on display. Pango mark up is accepted in both left and right parts. If the data item is empty, nothing will be displayed.
