    Requested Redo

    There is already an Undo (^Z) function, how about a Redo function (perhaps Shift Z) so that the user can toggle back and forth between a change to switch-compare?

    i.e.
    <-- Ctrl-Z (undo)
    --> Shift-Z (going to that change again)

    <-- Ctrl-Z (undo)
    --> Shift-Z (going to that change again)

    <-- Ctrl-Z (undo)
    --> Shift-Z (going to that change again)

    etc.

    Of course support.
    But this is a matter of adding an extra level, concerning memory.
    If so, then the choice also can be to have 2 Undo levels, which also has its advantages.

      Control Y is the usual shortcut for Redo in most programs that I know of, but that is used in IV for Crop to selection. Using Control Z for redo as well as undo might be easier to remember.

        Not correct. Ctrl-Z is the usual Undo function in every MS application that I can think of, and even Windows itself.
        For example, just select an item on your desktop and press the Delete key, once gone then press the Ctrl-Z and it returns.
        (Caution: this assumes you have your Recycle Bin to NOT permanently delete.)

        As for Ctrl-Y, all the MS Office applications use Ctrl-Y to Redo (if that operation makes sense, that is, where it can be done).

        OpenOffice also uses Ctrl-Z for Undo, and Ctrl-Y for Redo.

        I only suggested Shift-Z for Redo because I knew that the regular Ctrl-Y was already in use by IrfanView. So, I suggested the same Z key, and only the different alteration key for an easy way of going back and forth between Undo and Redo.

        !! PERHAPS in England (that is where your location says you are) they do it backward. After all, you guys do drive on the wrong side too.

            i'm still waiting for this also. every other program seems to have this really important feature, & i'm not quite sure why irfanview doesn't.

              This is another request that I definitely agree with! I found that it was previously requested on old forum http://irfanview-online.com/viewtopic.php?t=875 and then listed here http://www.irfanview-online.com/list...t.php?bugid=47 (is that bug forum now obsolete?)

                Redo function

                First, let me say I'm staggered there are so few requests for this as it's such a commonplace feature in so many apps these days. So all I can do is add another voice.

                Preferred keyboard combination? There's an argument for simply Ctrl+Z to toggle between Undo/Redo, using Photoshop as a model. On the other hand, this breaks down once multiple Undo (and therefore Undo/Redo) levels are eventually implemented -- the next priority on my wish list.

                With that in mind, Ctrl+Y is arguably the one to go for on the basis of industry near-standardisation (and I'm not just spruiking Micro$oft here), even though it would mean reassigning Crop Selection (Ctrl+Shift+X would make sense for this).

                Ctrl+Shift+Z would be next preference. But whatever the keys -- and though I hate to ask for anything more at all, in what's already one of the most astounding pieces of FreeWare on the planet -- please, please let's have the feature! :-)

                  Ctrl-Y has been Repeat for ages, not redo.

                    Yes, in Word etc. I use Ctrl+Y all the time to repeat an action.
                    ChuckE, you misquoted Bhikkhu Pesala. Tsk, tsk.
                    Its: Belongs to "It"

                    Lose: Fail to keep
                    Loose: Not tight

                      ?? How did I misquote anybody? I used the "Quote" function of this board to capture their words. (Tsk? Tsk?)

                      I said Ctrl-Y was Redo (or Repeat if you want to call it that, and I would - BUT Microsoft calls it "Redo," see the Help document of Word 2003. I just verified it again, myself. Other versions of Word are more than likely using the same terminology.)

                      We were talking about an Undo function and a Redo function.
                      Undo is not Redo.
                      Redo can be the same as Repeat in certain conditions.
                      However, Word ALSO has a Repeat function, and that is the F4 key.
                      I have used F4 for many years, through many versions of Word, as the Repeat function.

                      Please explain how I was in err.

                          This discussion is mainly about the name of the shortcut to activate a Redo. Not about the function itself.
                          About standards among other other standards. Maybe a checkbox for a custom shortcut would help.

                            I suppose when Irfan Skiljan developed the source code of an Undo option, he thought of a Redo option as well. I wander why he didn't add a Redo button. Was it the implementation of an extra buffer that lead to no Redo at all? XnView (Irfan's greatest rival) has no Redo option eighter. FastStone ImageViewer has.

                              My quote has Redo highlighted in red because I corrected my obvious typo after Chuck's post. There is no need to call anyone names because of errors like mistyping, misreading, or misquoting. It happens all of the time on forums because people are in a hurry.

                              This issue comes up very frequently. People have different opinions because they use different programs. There are very few standard shortcuts. By far the best option is to allow users to customise the keyboard. It puts an end to most of the debate, because if you don't like it, you can change it.
