How to take over manual sort order into slideshow

Post by Panther-7 »

Hi there,

within the regular thumbnail overview (using XnView MP) I sort my pictures manually by clicking and moving them. The new sort order is stored in the new created file .XnViewSort within the same directory. So far so good.

Now I want to view and save those pictures as a slideshow in exactly the same sort order as I have created described above.
Unfortunately, when I create the slideshow the pictures came up with the standard sort order (e.g. by name).

(How) is it possible to take over the sort order (stored in .XnViewSort as described above) into a slideshow?

This would be a really great feature as I don't have to sort it again in the slideshow configuration window.

Thank you very much in advance for your hints and support.
Take care and best regards.
