Thumbnails custom labels set up for categories are not displaying in browser.

Post by Farrukh » Sun Jul 21, 2019 7:27 pm

Using XnView MP Windows Version 0.93.1 64bits (Mar 6 2019).
This bug is related to another reported bug posted here https://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=39128.
I want to display categories under each thumbnail, so I tried to set up two custom labels from (Settings --> Browser -> Thumbnail) i.e.
Custom 3: {IPTC:Category}
Custom 4: {IPTC:Sup. Category}

but the browser is unable to show any such categories. Please note that in the given screenshot categories assigned to an image can be seen in categories panel (Green Block), but not under any thumbnail, instead, there are blank lines (Red Blocks). Please see attached screenshot:
2019-07-22 00-21-27.png

In addition, the tooltip or popup information box is also unable to display much information including our Custom labels:
2019-07-22_00-31-16_cr.png
I would like to display my assigned categories with each thumbnail which helps a lot to organize the images in so many ways.
Please correct it or guide towards some workaround.
Thanks a bunch.

"IPTC categories" is not the same thing as "XnViewMp's categories"

IPTC categoy is an (old) metadata you can edit only with "Edit iptc/xmp" window. I think no one uses this metadata anymore.

"XnViewMp's categories" is a tool that one can use to enter keywords in photos and update internal database. (file xnview.db)
Depending on metadata settings you've chosen, this wil create/update IPTC Keywords, and/or XMP Subject + XMP:Lr:Hierarchical Keywords ...

XnviewMp is able to display only "IPTC Keywords" under thumbnails . Can't display Xmp metadata here.

Thank for the reply.
So there is no way to display XnviewMP's category here. That's what my target was...

In Settings, (Browser) Thumbnails, Overlay Icons, if "has keywords" is checked, a yellow icon will be displayed on thumbnails having a category.

The only other way is to enable writing IPTC keywords (for jpg pictures), and display this label...
