Re: Vista & renaming files

Yes, you are right, it's actually installed in "Program Files (x86)". Btw, I also have Total Commander which works (from "Programm Files") at least in that case. I'm somewhat annoyed that Vista forces you to such workarounds. *sigh* I think for the time being I will start XnView as admin. Vista now ...

Vista & renaming files

Argh, Windows Vista is driving me crazy. I have an external hard disk and I'd like to rename files with XnView. There seems to be no way other than starting XnView as admin? I tried to change the owner of the hard disk to my vista account I also granted myself full access and it still doens't work ....

Re: Photo Organization - Category

I've now copied category.db, xnview.db, xnview.ini and got it finally to work. What I find strange is that in my Vista installation I have these files in Users\Appdata\Roaming\XnView and in Users\Appdata\Local\Virtual Store\Program Files (x86)\XnView. While the xnview.db (thumbnail cache) seemed to ...

Re: Photo Organization - Category

Well, I installed a newly downloaded XnView just yesterday on Vista and it has a category.db.

Re: Photo Organization - Category

I want to do the same thing, but for a change I'm missing xnview.db?! I have category.db in the Application Data folder, but there is no xnview.db. There is also no xnview.db in the program directory. I recently tried to move my categories to a new installation and copied everything from the Applica...

Re: Folder thumbnail not the first picture

Hm, just curious: is there any way to tell what file will be found first? Files that start with a hyphen (i.e. their file name) seem always to be found first, no matter if they are the first relative to a 'lexikographical ascii ordering'.

Workaround!

Gee, I really miss that functionality since I'm very used to it from total commander. So I hacked in a quick and dirty Autohotkey script that simulates this function. It's not heavily tested but I thought I share it so you can test it and help improve it. :) The script reads the folder/file name fro...

Folder thumbnail not the first picture

I noticed that the folder thumbnail is not always the first picture in the folder: If the first picture starts with an underscore (_) it's not taken as folder thumbnail. On the other hand the thumbnails inside the folder are sorted correctly: the underscore pictures come first. That's especially ann...

Re: Wrong colors

Oh, right, my mistake. I thought skins would not affect those rating icons because changing the skin changes the buttons right away but the rating icon after restarting xnview. So I was like: "Hm, strange, those icons are wrong. Maybe it's in the skin? *switch* Nope, that changes just the buttons. *...

Wrong rating colors

I'm probably the n-th guy (where n >> 0) pointing this out (sorry): Did anyone notice that the rating colors in the tree pane and the overlays in the thumbnail pane are not the same? In the tree pane it's, from 1 to 5 purple - red - orange - yellow - green whereas the overlays go red - orange - gree...

Re: Change Name of Color Tags

Just to correct it for folks that try this out: The # ranges from 0-4, where 0 is red and 4 is purple.

Re: Self-retagging ghost files (sorta)

Hm, what do you mean by a clean *.ini? Should I just delete xnview.ini from "../application data/"? Can do, but I'm sure it's pretty clean because this was a new installation and I did not change anything in the ini manually. Also, will there anything significant be lost by deleting it? Database, ca...

Self-retagging ghost files (sorta)

I'm using xnview 1.96.1 on WinXP. I noticed after some tagging, untagging, etc...: Some files are tagged even after restarting xnview ("clear tagged file list" is set on something else than 'never') In detail: I can untag each file with space or by clicking the tag box but after I change the folder ...
