Re: Loading slowly in Windows 10

Hey Triq.... Thanks for the excellent suggestions and links. The problem was NOT "check for updates," but turning off "open browser" seems to have done the triq :D . Also, per the other gentleman's idea, I DO have a slow USB drive attached. Great ideas and links, thanks. HOWEVER,...

Re: Loading slowly in Windows 10

Thanks cday. I found the post "What's different in XnView MP [Full List]" by budz45, which is an excellent in-depth description of MP. Unfortunately, I didn't see a compact listing of the things I most particularly care about: what does MP do better than Classic (i.e., reasons to switch), ...

Re: Loading slowly in Windows 10

Hi cday--Yes, am using Classic. Am not opposed to switching to MP. Is there a discussion somewhere comparing the two versions?

Re: Loading slowly in Windows 10

Thanks for the idea, Pierre. Unfortunately, renaming the Plugins folder made no difference.

Loading slowly in Windows 10

I doubt that this is a bug, but I'm using this forum in case it is. I've been using XnView for a long time—i.e., through versions of Windows beginning with XP—and I don't recall ever thinking "why does it take so long to load?" Now, using Windows 10, I think that every time I use the progr...

Re: Error saving PNG

Here's one test that's easy and quick: see attached file. When I open the JPG file with XnView and then try to save it as PNG, I get an error every time. Perhaps if you get the same error, or don't get it, that will tell us something. This file was NOT originally created by XnView, but rather by the...

Re: Error saving PNG

Of course you may ask! I use three different scanners: Epson XP410 all-in-one, Epson Perfection V300, and a Fujitsu ScanSnap 1300. Having never had any problems with them in several years' use, and using them with other programs besides XnView, I would say there is no reason to suspect them of contr...

Re: Error saving PNG

PS. One thing I can confirm is definitely a bug: when I get the error message when trying to save an image as PNG, XnView creates a file anyway. It has nothing in it, 0 bytes, and of course gives an error when I try to open it with XnView or any other image program. This is definitely a bug--no prog...

Re: Error saving PNG

HI cday and XnTriq, thanks for the replies. No, cday, I can't confirm that this is a Win 8.1 problem; that's the only environment I have. I did discover that the problem seems to be related to some characteristics of the original file. In other words, if I open an existing JPG file in XnView and the...

Re: JPG image sizes in preview

Thanks, XnTriq; solved the problem. I would think that the default setting for that setting--Use embedded thumbnail--should be NO / unchecked. What do you think? Seems like it's a source of on-going confusion. Pierre?

Sad to hear of John's passing. He was a good guy, to be sure. Thanks for the posting and letting me know, XnTriq.

JPG image sizes in preview

This is a long-time bug that I should have reported years ago. And I'm surprised that somebody else hasn't. Perhaps there's some reason for this--I admit I haven't researched the subject/problem. The problem is that when you change the thumbnail size to very large, the JPG images--only--stay at the ...

Re: Error saving PNG

I've also tested saving to a more conventional directory, such as c:\ashell, and had the same results. So the problem is NOT some weird thing involving OneDrive.

Error saving PNG

Hi Pierre or whomever-- I just downloaded XnView/Win version 2.33 and immediately had a problem that I've never seen before--and I've been using XnView a long time. When trying to save a newly-scanned image as a .PNG file, I get the message "Error writing the file <C:\Users\OneDrive\Desktop\tes...

Re: Help file

Okay, I will. But not for a while. I have to re-assemble and update the files from 5/6/7 years ago (when I took the first shot at this project), build the new deliverables, and then see what we need and are missing. I'll get back to you. Other folks who'd like to help please post your name here also.
