Re: 0.84: Update catalogue from files causes heavy disk acce

dramatic improvement in speed as well as reduction of number of bytes written.

As an example, I could no longer measure my test for 1000 files.

So I scanned 11000 files - in 9 seconds, and a total of about 9MB written.

Re: Categories: Non-selection actions & on-disk metadata

I tried to reproduce this but when I view a file and its properties in Explorer after applying a category to it said category does not show in its metadata. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong. There are settings in Browser->Metadata->IPTC&XMP tab that allow you to synchronise keywords in the met...

Re: Make it easy to delete keywords rapidly

When importing images, sometimes I encounter images with a lot of spam tags. I haven't found a way to just delete all tags. You can select all undesired keywords and press the X key. Actually, there seems to be a UI bug here - :bug: new bug created : I can select a range using shift-click, but cont...

Re: Make it easy to delete keywords rapidly

When importing images, sometimes I encounter images with a lot of spam tags. I haven't found a way to just delete all tags. If there enough images and enough keywords then I find it useful to use the command line exiftool program. It is very powerful, although it comes at a price of somewhat arcane...

Re: "Updating catalog" is stuck

Update: in the meantime the process finished, even though the progress bar was always stuck at that very beginning position. So please definitely implement a more granular progress bar, maybe updated every 10 files to not spend too much time on the update itself. I can confirm the very erratic prog...

Re: 0.84: identifying uncatalogued files/folders

I came across this while debugging the search using DB.

The search status gives you no information as to how many files and folders were checked, so you have no idea how many files were not even in the catalogue.
I got suspicious when the search was going really fast.

0.84: identifying uncataloged files/folders

I think I know of a number of ways to update catalog DB contents, after new files are added, or file contents have been changed by other software: manually browse to a folder and XnViewMP will add any new files and will somehow identify changed files and decide if any need updating menu View->update...

Re: 0.84: Search progress and results window

CameronD, do think you'll find the time to create individual topics for the detected bugs? Done, but not fast enough - most have been fixed already. :) On Issue 6, I am happy with the way things are - I think I even prefer it (most of the time). Issue 2 - I mentioned with issue 1, but not sure how ...
