Thanks Pesala - I seem to have missed the 4.24 version so I`m grateful.

Don't bother to upgrade yet if you need to view SVG or DWG images. The new version cannot view them.

Be cautious about using the new option: View, Display Options, "Use resample for zoom."

• I opened a large image (about 3,500 x 3,000 pixels).
• I selected an area and zoomed in.
• I turned on the option to "Use resample for zooming."
• I zoomed out using the keyboard shortcut.

IrfanView froze completely. I could not terminate it from Windows Task Manager. The disk was thrashing away. Finally, I used the power button. On rebooting I got the Blue Screen strongly advising me to check the inegrity of my drive. As you may know, running scandisk can take all night, so I skipped it for now.

Some users might find this useful. Like most OCR programs, results may be less than 100% depending on the quality of the image, but it does often save some typing. To test it, I zoomed in to my preceding post, captured the screen in IrfanView and pressed the F9 key to start the OCR plugin. I selected the area to recognise, and the resulting text (with errors) is pasted below:
