You have UndoCount in [View] section of xnview.ini

Please add a new line in the [View] section. Example:

Code: Select all

[View]
...
UndoCount=20
...

thanks for trying to help
but at me it hasnt worked with the xnview.ini

but meanwhile i made it with the registry :-)
XNVIEW: - Tools > Options > System integration to windows registry

there with regedit
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\XnView\View
i made a new (dword 32bit) named "UndoCount"
20 dezimal


now it works - thx :)

Good to read that you've found the solution. The location of your settings depends on your setting for storing and reading the XnView settings in Settings > Integration > Paths. Obviously you don't use the .ini file (default) but the Windows registry for storing and reading. See topic Info about XnView's settings (store & load).
