I figured out how to produce multiple Browser Tabs!!!

Post by doko »

I finally figured out how to produce multiple browser tabs, this method is fully functional and bug-free so I hope the developer will implement it in the actual software. PLEASE devs, do NOT remove this "bug".

To reproduce:
1. Make sure you have one browser tab and at least one image tab open.
2. Close XnView
3. Click on 'Yes' when asked if you want to save the session
4. Open xnview.ini config file
5. Find the line:

Code: Select all

session=browser, "C:/your_image.jpg"
6. Replace it with

Code: Select all

session=browser, browser, browser, "C:/your_image.jpg"
or as much browser tabs as you need.

7. Save the file
8. Start XnView again, enjoy your multiple browser tabs!

To retain the browser tabs across multiple sessions, be sure to leave at least one image tab open before closing XnView.
There's one BIG flaw, though, it cannot save the different addresses in each tab after you restart it. If anyone have a weird trick around this, do share.
But hey, small steps.

For those wondering, the path to the file is "C:\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\XnViewMP\xnview.ini". Thankfully this still works on the latest (1.4.0, 2022-12-12) version

When confirmed this post could possibly qualify for some sort of prize!! :D

PLEASE devs, do NOT remove this "bug".
And invites the common question: 'bug or feature?' :wink:
