Description Frank Steinmetzger 2016-08-14 10:20:05 UTC
When walking through the images in a directory in view mode, Gwenview shows an overlay popup which tells me that I reached it and offers me 3 actions to click. But I cannot close it with the keyboard. When I press Esc out of reflex, I close the image right away.

I could even live without the overlay entirely. An option to not show it would be nice. :)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
View the last image in a directory. Press the key to move to the next image. The overlay is shown. Now I simply want it to go away, but stay with the image view.

Actual Results:  
I must move my hand to the mouse in order to close the overlay. Any keyboard solution I know of involves leaving the image and coming back to it in a second step.

Expected Results:  
Even though it is not technically a popup, because it doesn't use standard dialog widgets, it still behaves like on by popping up automatically. It should therefore react to input like a normal popup.

Gwenview 4 has also been affected for a long time (well, since the beginning I suppose). But I assume it won't be fixed anymore, right?

BTW: The overlay is repainted every time I repeat the action which causes it. I.o.w., when I am at the last image, the overlay is drawn every time I press the Next image key, causing the semi-transparent background of the overlay to become more and more opaque.
