Hot folders items

Postby kalain » Mon Aug 28, 2017 2:21 pm

Hi,

In Input tab,
when using Hot folder window and selecting a folder path in it, and close it (Ok)
it doesn't refresh Input file tab!

If I do this with "Add folders" it works!

Did I miss something here ?

Regards

'Hot Folders' are not the same as 'Add folders'. New files from hot folder will be added in input tab

When a new file arrives [from another application, for example] it should be processed immediately...

Another, and possibly better, name for 'hot folder' is 'watched folder' as XnConvert checks regularly for new files in the hot folder(s).
