Re: Custom arguments/parameters for command buttons

+1

Easy to implement.

For placeholders I suggest to use the standard DOS prefix, that is %
So we have:

%current_folder, %current_file etc.

Re: Can I set a default save directory?

This is standard OS behavior. At least on Windows it can be changed - the standard Open / Save dialogs have such property. I see the implementation of this thing (IF necessary) via a checkbox somewhere in Tools \ Settings saying „Save As in the same folder with the original”. I understand that somet...

Re: categories and IPTC: create, delete, search

Perhaps, you can get a translation of my help file with google translate (The link below )
Perhaps you can write it in English in Xnview's Wiki?

Re: Unsupported *.raf images

In fact, the solution is simple: (If Pierre DOES NOT FORGET) it needs just a build with the new dcraw in the new (upcoming) version of Xnview MP.

Re: Unsupported *.raf images

After a chat with Richard and updating my ACR it seems that indeed the problem is in XnView's dcraw - it doesn't support the compressed Fuji's RAW format while the old RAW is supported. I can open the "black image" safely with the latest ACR version 11.1 while with my previous one - 9.2, I think - A...

Re: Unsupported *.raf images

Problem with the file - is not with XnView MP. Below is my message to Richard (Butler), DPReview's Technical Editor: ---------------------------------- Hi Richard, Sorry for disturbing you. Just a quick note about the raw file of the photo from https://www.dpreview.com/sample-galleries/6974816295/fu...

Re: learning metadata storage methods for category/comment

I now understand that the Write button is the immediate and manual way to do what I intend to Never do which is to write back into the tag region of an image file. Yep. Writing to image file is therefore normal off and I suppose that automatic writes are not enabled by any obscure configuration swi...

Re: learning metadata storage methods for category/comment

It isn't a problem to ask. :) ...but please write a little bit clearer. I will try to guide you: - Forget what we discussed. - I will ask you. You will do exams now :) - We will advance in small steps. 1. Think that we have TWO separate engines: 1.a. One which writes/reads to/from files. 1.b. One wh...

Import & Sort : Move & Batch Convert

Import & Sort could be a very sought and powerfull feature by photojournalists / news photographers, however it lacks few things in order to be really usefull for the (by far) most used workflow: downloading the images from a memory card / camera: 1. Almost nobody should use „Copy” as trasfer method...

Read this: https://www.xnview.com/wiki/index.php/Cataloging_Features_in_XnView_MP Besides that: "descript.ion" is legacy - a very old internet standard from the age of BBSes. It has its merits tho.

Re: Create new folder

Win7 x64 - MP 0.93b1 x64, Dark Theme (if matters) :

It doesn't select the name of the folder. I need to press Ctrl+A for this.

EDIT: hmmm... Perhaps it matters: In View menu | View As.. is Thumbnails + Filenames.

Re: Search with excluding categories

...of course, by default the 3-state checkbox will be 'Grayed' by default. not too complicated for standard user?? Nope.

Re: Search with excluding categories

...also don't forget to test the "Match" drop-down for "Any" and "All" predicates (that is AND and OR) in the case of the tri-state checkbox.
