@Wolfgang I am glad that you published “your” workaround some time ago and again here BUT it is a workaround in the classic sense of that word.
It should have been fixed a long time ago and the workaround shows just how easy it is to fix!
Plus you need to make sure you don’t click on the right hand pane by accident, i.e. this is useful to be able to view in split screen mode but it should be possible to leave split screen active while making normal edits.
Thanks for that! Turns out this also works if you select the ReTouch icon in the top bar. Using the color picker isn’t as good a choice, if I accidentally click the image the whole whitebalance goes of. Is fixable with ctrl-Z but still… If I use the ReTouch icon I can still make that mistake but it won’t instantly change the whole image. And the ReTouch can also be ctrl-Z’t.
@BHAYT : This way you can ALSO use the edit pane and the splitscreen stays. But I totally agree with you, this should be fixed years ago already. I think this might even be the easiest fix of all for them since everything to change it is already in the software.
From what remains of our exchanges at the time;
DxO has launched a complete overhaul of its viewer which was to be completed in stages.
I never found out if the program was completely carried out.
But I did ask.
What I understood. The new viewer is used by corrections with tool (eyedropper, etc.).
It’s the one that enables shared viewing.
Mac users who only have the split-screen view were longing for the side-by-side comparison. Trying to get a split screen view in Windows, i found out accidentally that i can have it with the picker in the top row.
Let’s see whether both user groups get what they deserve.
@Frankster69 No user believes otherwise but while we wait for DxO to fix the problem and for hell to freeze over and I suspect that the freezing bit will come first, then there is a sort of workaround for those desperate to have such a feature and who don’t mind compromises.
if you do it with Reshape you get a grid in the righthand pane and if you click you will get nothing unless you drag one of the intersections on the grid (so perhaps that is the least risky, except for the presence of a “distracting” grid)?
