Preserve order of '[Format]' keys in 'xnview.ini'

Post by esv »

The keys in the [Format] section of the config file xnview.ini (see an example below) seem to be constantly randomly reordered even when no changes occur.
This messes up diffs with my backup config files — even when I don't change anything, these reorderings show up as changes.
Would you please save these settings with a fixed order?
Thank!
