<snip> I'll list the changes that I've noticed in case they are actual bugs: 1. My rotated (portrait) photos are not auto-rotated in the thumbnails as they normally are. The preview image is correctly rotated. 2. My thumbnail label does not have all the information that it normally does. It has the...

Hi Pierre, Sorry - This was my error. I had trailing spaces in each line of my filelist.txt file. After removing my trailing spaces, every thing works as expected. (I didn't notice the spaces originally, because the browser thumbnails showed up even with the trailing spaces. It was the fullscreen vi...

Hi, I think I found the difference: 1. If the photos are on a local C:\ drive, F11-fullscreen works ok. 2. If the photos (not the filelist) are on a network drive and I try F11-fullscreen from the browser window, then it fails. Note - I can get to fullscreen hitting F11 from a viewer tab. Note - Per...

User generated complex searches = exotic
User managed databases = exotic
Manually created file lists = medium
Filelist feature by itself = mundane

XnView already supports exporting a filelist under menu item: Create > File Listing ...

It would be great to have a boolean search built in. A well designed boolean search engine would probably support 90% of the kinds of searches needed. It would probably be impossible to cover every use case though. The -filelist interface provides a way to cover the other cases if someone is able to...

Fullscreen is unavailable with -filelist option; Crashes

If xnview is invoked with the -filelist option, then F11 / View in fullscreen does not work. Sometimes this (F11/View in fullscreen attempt) results in a crash. It sounds similar to this report since it involves fullscreen and appears to not be caching in this mode. http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewt...

A final post before I turn in: Some related suggestions: 1. Add the -filelist option to the Info > Command Line Help menu option. 2. Add the ability to open a filelist via GUI. That would be great for saved searches. (3. I think there is already an option to save any selection as a filelist). By the...

Hello, "xnview -filelist <name_of_file>" is able to open the xnview browser with my files! Thanks!!! I am invoking xnview from an unzipped download, instead of from an installed version in C:\Program Files\XnView. So I am not sure if you expect certain differences. I'll list the changes that I've no...

I'm playing with it now.

thanks

Hello Pierre, Thanks for such a quick response. I have downloaded the 1.96 beta, but I'm not sure how to access the browse filelist feature. 1. I downloaded a zip file: XnView-beta1.zip 2. I unzipped it on my C drive (not overwriting my previously installed version 1.95.4). 3. I am able to run the b...

The "use" for this features would be to be able to use xnview as a browser for an arbitrary collection of photo files with all of its great features at my disposal. Exporting 1 file from file manager= start viewer, but 2 or more files= browser? I don't mind starting the browser for a single photo. ...

Hi, OK. Here is the use case: I have a database of several thousand photos. They are all tagged with categories. I would like to find a photo of my son and daughter together, but without mom or dad. I can not do this kind of complex boolean search within XnView. (Hard to find this kind of feature an...

Hi,

A related suggestion:

Browsing the (e.g.) filelist.txt pics does not have to be command line based, it could/should(?) also be available as via menu File > Browse Filelist or similar.
