Is there a way to change the folder colors?

Post by LfmC »

The yellow is really destroying the dark theme. Any way to change this? I know there was a folder color editor app for the classic version, anything like that possible in MP?

Thanks

Wait a bit for Pierre to get back to you. (or one of the other gurus)

Thanks for the info, but life it too short. I switched back to the xnview classic, problem solved.

May I suggest that you make a request for an option to be added, referring to the option available in XnView Classic, as a new post in the MP - Suggestions section of the forum...

There is no point in the priority adding this opportunity to the detriment of other tasks. There will be free time - then it may be sense to remember your offer, but still early because Its implementation will require switching the developer's efforts from eliminating errors and compatibility issues with other cosmetics.

Yes indeed, but in the absence of a response indicating that the possibility already exists, posting a request to add the option as a suggestion places it in the natural place, and then certainly Pierre will decide when he has time to add it if he wished to... :D

Then it is reasonable to first mark the wish, if possible. I also send different requests, and one remembered "Urgently do as I want!" - flew in /dev>nul, instantly :D

Thanks boss.
Also, congratulations on keeping the "best free pic viewer" title for over 15 years. A great and free program of any kind is so rare nowadays, it warms my heart seeing that there are still some great devs out there who aren't just in it for the money.

I wish you the best of luck :)

I tried changing the colors, but it didn't seem to have any effect.

My .ini file is at

~/.config/xnviewmp/xnview.ini

I stopped XnView, then modified all the values by dividing them by 4:

folderColor1=64 64 42
folderColor2=64 50 18
folderColor3=49 35 0
folderColor4=62 52 26
folderColor5=43 35 13
