Yes, I played with those for a bit. That definitely works for keeping the image in the correct aspect ratio. Thanks!
However, AUTO will only go up to 100% of the actual image height. That works great if the image is larger than the container/display - it will scale down appropriately. But it does NOT allow you to enlarge an image that is smaller to fill the screen.
I guess one would ask, "Why do you want to enlarge an image - it will just lose resolution and start to look yucky." That's true. But most of the images I have were originally scaled down to about 600 pixels high. I could zoom in on them a little without having them look too bad in the previous version, now I can't...and it appears I won't be able to when HTML5 gets fully implemented.
One quirk I found with Sigil is that the image does not automatically re-size when a pane is opened, taking up some of the viewer real estate.
eg. I have an image (cover.html) filling the entire height of the BookView pane (with the F/R) pane closed. When I open the F/R pane, the image does not resize. If the F/R pane was open when I fit the image to the BV pane then when I close the F/R pane, the image re -sizes properly. The same thing applies when I am looking at the Preview pane. Re-sizing of the image is correct when I drag the Inspector window down, but not when I drag it up. It will only refresh the preview image when I select a different tab, or switch from BV to CV.
