XnConvert stealing focus

Post by Sandtyger »

Hi there. I have a simple convert job running in XnConvert 1.76 on Windows 10 64bit.

Actions:
Add Text
Add Watermark

Selected Options:
Output to a specific folder
Format JPG
Keep original date/time attributes
Preserve metadata
Delete Original
Clear input files

When I run the job, XnConvert rapidly and repeatedly steals focus from the foreground program (Chrome, Word, etc). This means that I'm unable to multitask when running a job on XnConvert.

Is there a setting I can tweak to address this or is this a known issue?

Thank you!

Confirmed. When I uncheck the "Delete Original" option, focus is no longer affected.

you can reproduce always? "Delete Original" is checked? Windows 10?

I'm experiencing this issue, as well, though I'm using XnView MP's Batch Conversion feature. It's not so much XnView itself, but Explorer's Delete window that is produced for every single file deleted. Converting PNG to WEBP is saving lots of storage space, but with every delete operation focus goes to XnView.
