Thumbnail display not showing

Post by HerrBill »

On opening, XnView no longer displays thumbnails in the thumbnail pane. Any suggestions as to how I can switch it back on again.

What are your settings for ViewFilter by, Bill?
The preferences for ViewFilter byCustom are configured in ToolsSettings…File listCustom filter.

Under custom filter, all boxes are ticked with the exception of video which is listed under the heading 'show as thumbnail'. I ticked this box but it had no visible effect.

Filter by image has done the trick. Thanks for your assistance. :)
Question 1, any idea how this option might have been switched off?
And 2, is there a quick, self help reference available that beginners/ newbies to XnView such as I, could refer to in time of need?
