I have a workflow problem, that has been through official support requests, but was unable to be resolved. I'm hoping a scripting solution (or perhaps some third party macro app) might exist to fix it.
I use a twin window/display setup, with the browser on one screen, the viewer on the other. The problem is that when selecting a thumbnail in the browser, although the viewer then shows the image, the menu commands (and keyboard shortcuts) for View > Customise Viewer (command) ie zoom controls, don't apply to the viewer window, unless you manually click the viewer window first.
This seems to be a fundamental architectural problem with the application - because you're clicking the thumbnail in the browser window, the View commands are being routed to the browser window, where they have no relevance / effect.
Currently I have to mouse back and forth between displays, when all I want to do is just click a thumbnail with the mouse, hit a key to zoom to 100%, pan around on the image with my trackpad, hit a key to zoom back out, then click a different thumbnail with the mouse. This problem is breaking a nice ergonomic system with mouse under one hand, keyboard and trackpad under the other.
Is there a way C1 could have a persistent background script that captures mouse clicks on thumbnails in the browser window, and then passes them through with the addition of a keyboard shortcut immediately after to make the viewer window active?
If someone knows it can be done, I'm happy to talk fees for doing so.
