Retention of tagged Checkbox entries

Post by ColDon »

As I have been unable to find any resolution to my question on the net or on the forum I have posted it. I have to deal with large folders of images and need to go through the folder examining each image and selecting particular ones for further action by placing a tick in the check box. Is there anyway of retaining the tick in the checkboxes on exiting the program so that they will still be there when I open it again. It can be very frustrating when I have to break off after a long run of ticking boxes because I am required to exit the program quickly! All that work is lost and has to be redone. Not a normal occurrence, of course, but twice recently I have had to do that because of a fire alarm and the building had to be evacuated immediately. Just thought it would be great if the ticks could be retained somehow. Does anyone know if this is possible? I am using xnView 2.51. Thank you.

@Pierre. Apologies for the delay but have had problems adding an image. Hope it's there this time. By checkboxes I mean the ones overlaid on the thumbnail image in its top left hand corner. See image attached

Nothing between the Img tags above in your code... :(

And even when there is, intended images do not always display correctly, so it is always best to preview a post.

@Pierre Thank you for your response. I changed the setting to "Never" and when I exited then reloaded my ticked tags were still there. Many thanks.
