Hide hidden Files

Post by michael_ »

Hello,

I use XnViewMP on Linux (OpenSuSE Tumbleweed). I am quite satisfied with it, but one thing bothers me every time again:

When I open a folder, XNViewMP first shows all the hidden files and folders and then the normal folders (hidden files start with a dot). Depending on the folder, that can be a lot of hidden files or folders that you have to scroll through every time again. As said, this can be very annoying.

It would be very helpful to have a checkbox in the preferences where you could set a checkmark to show or not show hidden files.

Maybe this can be implemented in one of the next versions.

Otherwise, XNViewMP is a strong piece of software with support that others will hardly match. Many thanks for it.

Bye
the Michael
