XnView favorite folders not saved?

Post by davidwu10 »

For past several versions of XnView the program will not save my favorite folder(s). I ALWAYS use the same primary folder, with subfolders checked off, and for years it worked just fine. Now, every time I do a search, even within the same session, I have to go back and tell it which folder to search. Help!?

I open the program, and edit Favorites. I assign a folder to a given favorite, yet every time I run a search, I have to go back and reset the folder. I used to have the search permanently set on one folder (which is the only folder I ever use for searches) and its subfolders, so that when I opened the program to do a search, it was already at that folder.

Help?

Pierre, or anyone else?

Any thoughts on why it won't save my Favorite album and always open in the folder, as it used to do?

Thanks.
