Problems when you move and rename a file

Post by RPratesP »

If you move a file (Alt-M) and then immediately try to rename (F2), XNView says "unable to rename"

Yes, Sure.

Open the XNView app.
Open any file.
Move to to a different folder (Edit, Move to)
Once you have moved the file, try to rename it (Edit, Rename), giving it a different name than the original
The error message "Error renaming the file" appears.
