V7: Rotate image from thumbnail

Post by OGroeger »

Good morning,

in v6 we had a mouse over on the thumbnail that offered to rotate the image clockwise and counterclockwise. It opened when the mouse was over the bottom of the thumbnail. In v7 that mouse over seems gone. The only similar thing is the mouse over that appears when the mouse is over the label counter.
That "shortcut" was quite comfortable because i have to apply the rotation quite often (iphone horzontal shot like a scanner). Can we have it back or is there an alternative that is similiar effortless?

Best regards, Olaf

Hi Olaf,

You could use the bracket keys: [ rotates the thumbnail left 90 degrees and ] rotates the thumbnail right 90 degrees.
Would that help?

Kind regards from Holland

I believe this is what you want. At the bottom of the window, click the four-square icon to reveal the Thumbnail Style menu. Then the Bar Style at the bottom. "Hovered" will return it to the v6 look and feel.

I am also missing that simple rotation option with the mouse-over.
Changing to "hovered" does not bring back the option to "rotate" - at leas on a Mac

These special brackets are not on a german mac keyboard. and using Alt5 or Alt6 as often found on web does not work either.

Hovered indeed is the exact V6 behavior...including the rotation and also works on macOS.

I am on a Mac, and I can verify that it appears for me. Is this not what you see?

Also the choice of a "Drop Down Menu"gives the choice of rotation along with all the others.

Hello Hert,

hovering works as expected.

Using "ß" or "´" does not do anything on my german wireless Apple keyboard.

I like actually the new look & feel of the bar style "Ratings and colors" but it would be nice to have the rotation option also like in "hovering"

Arrrgghh !!!
And I was sooo happy to finally being able to get rid off the hovering nuisance, being able to save an additional custom thumb caption AND clicking directly to assign color labels and ratings.
But of course if I now now longer can rotate with the mouse, but need to ALTGR+[ on my German keyboard &%$§#* !!!
Back to using old hovering again :(

Excellent! "Hovered" is exactly i was looking for. Thank you very much!

I knew about the keyboard shortcuts but they have no effect on my keyboard. Though i thought it was related to my Microsoft Ergo keyboard. The 'ß' and '´' shortcuts work as zoom in/zoom out in the image preview if this means anything for the analysis.

Best regards, Olaf

The shortcut for Rotate Left is the OEM-4 key.
The shortcut for Rotate Right is the OEM-6 key.

The setting Hovered does not seem to produce the rotation arrows in my windows 10-64 setup.

The setting dropdown doesn't produce any buttons on mouse-over.
What may cause this? I must be doing something wrong I guess.
