5.1.0 No option to display Image of print objct

New UI is nice but:

I can no longer find  a way to display the object image on the MK4 screen. When i have a huge number of gcodes with similar names on the thumb drive this was very useful to validate that I selected the correct file.

Also the menu timeout seems to not be working. If in the menu it will stay there for ever.

Had a couple of the hangups already listed in this Topic list.

Noticed this as well, like mentioned if your printing variants, the image is helpful

For the image thumbnails, are you using gcode sliced on a version of PrusaSlicer older than 2.7.0? If so, you will (unfortunately) need to slice them again in version 2.7.0 or later. See the following from the release notes of the 5.1.0 firmware:

Until this release, the thumbnails for G-code were in PNG format, which was rather resource-heavy. We have decided to switch to another format called QOI, which is way less demanding, and we can utilize the freed-up resources to bring more features in future releases.

The only downside of removing the support for PNG is that all the G-codes sliced until now, won't have a visible thumbnail on firmware 5.1.0 or newer. For now, the only solution is to reslice the G-code in PrusaSlicer 2.7.0 or newer.

that's what is odd.... using the latest slicer 2.7 and the mk 4  is on 5.0.1+12089

it also refuses to recognize binary g code , if saved as binary they do not even show up as printable files?

well Thanks Justin < when reading what I posted I realized where things had gone amiss, I was running 5.0.1. not 5.1 close but no cigar.

now the images show correctly and binary g code is just peachy.....nothing like punching yourself in the face in public;)
