Unicode is supported in XnViewMP, only. XnView Classic (Windows) does not support unicode.

User requests for Unicode support in XnView were one of the main reasons why Pierre started the development of XnViewMP.

Is there chance to easily transfer all preferences from Xnview to XnViewMP ?

MP's database layout is still undergoing changes (performance improvement etc.).
As soon as this process is completed, Pierre will provide a migration utility.
