Drag&Drop to Adobe Illustrator artboard doesn't work

Post by podr » Sun May 19, 2019 4:18 pm

Hi
I'm not sure is it bug or wrong settings.
I can't place image into opened document in Adobe Illustrator (Windows 10).
When I drag&drop any image file to Illustrator's artboard only text with the full file path is placed.
If drag&drop to empty space of Illustrator's window (not opened document), new document opens.

Drag&drop to open document in Photoshop works as expected.
Drag&drop from explorer to Illustrator works as expected.

It is a bug in Qt (the library which XnView MP is using).

Other users found it also:

https://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=37934

The problem is already fixed in Qt:

https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-62662

See here for release notes:
https://fossies.org/linux/qt-everywhere ... ges-5.10.0

If Pierre updates the XnView MP to the latest LTS then we will have the fix "for free".

Thank you for the explanation.
Will waiting for an update.

XnView one of the few viewers that shows OpenEXR which I use a lot.
There are few non-user-friendly minor apps.
Last I used was Adobe Bridge, the only solid app I know support EXR, I tired with it.
Acdsee doesn't support EXR, still. :shock:

For me that drag&drop bug :bug: in XnView the only thing that separates the app from ideal.
