Can't delete tagged files?

Post by Black_Knyght » Tue Feb 07, 2012 1:52 am

I do a lot with various files, and frequently use the tag box to move, copy, delete, etc.

For reasons unknown at the moment if I try to delete a group of tagged files, XnView only deletes the specific file I click on and not the group of tagged files. Is there a fix for this?

Just to narrow things down, you should be seeing a dialog asking:
Please select which group to use: selected files; tagged files; cancel; [ ]Do not show this dialog again

If that dialog isn't shown, some possible explanatons:
- 'do not show dialog' was used and needs reset by new ini or editing it by hand.
- not using thumbnails view.

Thanx, that was what I needed to know. I didn't know I'd clicked that dialog box, but it's fixed now.
