1.51: Why does XnConvert allow duplicate files to be added

Post by budz45 »

Hi,

Right, I never noticed before that XnConvert allows duplicate files to be added. Try and drag & drop a same file (more than once) to XnConvert to see what I mean.

Do current users have use for adding duplicates of the same file which I have no knowledge about?

So either this 'duplicates' feature-by-design should be removed OR otherwise a default user setting should exist in "Settings" to control this feature in not allowing duplicate files to be added to the "Input" process.

Could you explain what's the purpose of allowing me to add (drag & drop) many duplicate of same file??

I believe also that duplicate file should be removed.
