Category File property update when moving file to another folder

Post by ketulu »

Hi,

I have a temporay folder to store all picture until I categorize them.
I assign category(ies) to each picture and then use the drag and drop to move them to dedicated final folder.

When browsing thanks to the filters category, I see only empty vignette : the file name is correct but the property/file/repertoiry is the old one (ie the temporary one).

The bug looks similar to the Issue 1305.

Is there a workaround to manually update the folder name in the db so that I do not loose the time spent to classify ?

thanks for your work anyway!

I used drag & drop in XnView mp.

when copiing back the files manually (ie out of xnview) , all looks good again.
seems the database is not updated with new path when doing Drag & Drop

This is strange because the catalog is updated when you copy/move files. Are you able to reproduce? Do you drag&drop from thumbnail view into folder view?
