I'm a big fan of comics and when on Windows, I tend to use CDisplayEx as my preferred reader of choice for
.cbz files. When on my desktop, I enjoy reading comics in full screen glory. I like each page fitting the entire width of my screen and scroll down the page, if need be, to reach any hidden panels. This allows me to realise the full impact of the art and makes for comfortable viewing. By default, however, CDisplayEx does not do this and while it is highly configurable, tweaking it to accomplish this is decidedly unintuitive. Ergo, this article ...
Setting up CDisplayEx to display pages with maximum width can be effectuated through the following steps:
- Right click and select
- There should be four options here,
Over Widthrespectively. A couple of these might already be selected.
- De-select any options already selected by clicking on them.
- Finally, select
Under Width. This should be the only option selected.
I have no idea how
Under Width makes any sense when I want a full width and variable/scrollable height. But there we are. I guess if I twist my neck and squint my left eye, I can vaguely see what the developer is trying to convey. But I'd rather just remember to follow this guide the next time around.
