Would like to use AppData files in program folder

Post by budz45 »

I would like to custom move and use such files as bookmarks.ini in the program's folder instead of the win AppData folder, but as my own choice. Current MP 0.31 doesn't support reading bookmarks.ini , style, database files etc from the program folder (portable use). I understand that especially, the database files can grow in great filesize but in my own portable use I don't care. Would be a nice background feature to add. Just my thought.

xnview.ini already works just fine in program folder, so custom ability for the rest would be good too.

Hmmm. I checked the behavior just now and, (on my system) all 0.31 user files (ini, bookmarks, bars, etc) are currently being stored in the same folder as the executable. :?:

Sorry for late reply.
I actually meant these files...

Would be good (esp. for Portable lovers) to be able to custom have everything in one folder

btw I just updated 0.33 to 0.35

Oh right, so you mean Settings>Integration>(folder used for other files) I have to change from "user" to "xnview"??
