Hi, love FFview but have had the same problems as the poster below. Try double clicking the voice recognition icon to close it, seemed to make all my troubles go away.

I don't know what's going on with the way this is being developed... As it gets upgraded it gets less and less stable and loses functionality. I thought this was going to be the best thing out there for a manga fan, but it is now, with the current release, easier to unpack a 150 page file and load it into Preview, where I don't have a single problem at all.
Here is how it stands for me:
1. Reprogramming keys doesn't work right anymore. If changed, they just become non-functional and beep at you. I use the left and right arrows as default backwards and forwards, but if re-located these keys just stop working, period.
2. The image used to, every once in a while not draw the whole screen, now it is a constant. It draws only parts, leaving large sections as either black, or white, resizing the window sometimes works, but rarely. This happens in all view forms... Single/manga/american, 1:1/pagewidth/fullscreen. The parts left out aren't even consistent. If you come back to an image, often a different part doesn't draw.
3.Several image types that are now native to the Mac aren't supported (or don't work), like .bmp.
4. Using fullscreen (or near fullscreen) can be hazardous, as at some points the display area just freaks out mapping other parts of the desktop as twisted hash inside the display area. Resizing the window, larger and smaller, often gets rid of the "freak."
I want to love this app, but it seems to be dying slowly.
1.5GB G4 1.2Ghz AGP, Cinema Display, OSX 10.3.7 - OSX 10.4.7
If the image problems are corrected (and the key mapping fixed), this would get 5s across the board.

Thank you so much for making such an app! Better than Windows ACD See (not the crappy Mac version). Great image browser.

This is the closest I've found to that classic Windows viewer, ACDSee 3. There's still a few things I'd like to see:

- voice recognition disabled by default
- pre-rendering of next image (I *hate* having to wait a couple of seconds for the image to render after I've hit 'next')
- better image scaling, specifically the ability to grow the viewport dynamically on a per-image basis, and to only reduce an image resolution if it is larger than the maximum allowed window size.
- directory awareness: open one image in a directory of images, and then be able to navigate between the entire directory's contents

Here's hoping all of the above make it into v1.0 :)

Great program! I'm wondering if there is a way to flip on page at a time in the double page view? (ie. Pg1, Pg2 to Pg2, Pg3 instead of Pg1, Pg2 to Pg3, Pg4 if that makes sense)

SHRIZZA had trouble on 22 Jul 2006
For some reason, almost half the time when I move forward or backward in a comic, I can see the little eye icon in the list view move up or down, but the comic display itself doesn't update. However, I can sort of force it to update by activating the magnifying cursor and moving over the page. Even then, sometimes only part of the page updates and I'm left with a lot of blank space. Resizing the window also seems to help with regard to forcing the update. This happens in all of "single", "western", and "manga" modes, and I've tested with many different types of comics from numerous sources. I'm running OS X 10.4.3 and FFView 0.9.6 on a 17" 1 GHz PowerBook G4.
