diashow and subfolders

Postby byth » Sun Nov 18, 2012 1:04 pm

I have the following problem: I tried to create a diashow. I switched on "Add folders adds folders and all its subfolders" in the diashow dialog. The diashow runs well if I start the show in xnview directly via menu. I use the following folder structure:

pictureroot\subfolder1\picture1.jpg ...

pictureroot has only subfolders and no pictures. The specified diashow path is "pictureroot".

And now my problem: If I save the diashow in a sld file and I try to start the sld-file it does not work. If I change the path in the sld file from pictureroot\ to pictureroot\subfolder1\ the diashow starts and works fine.

I changed already the "WatchDir = 1", but no success. I think, if I start the sld file directly, then the xnview software doesn't scan subfolders. If I start the diashow in xnview via menu, then all subfolders will be scanned.

Could somebody help me to solve this problem ?

I think the slide show option "add folders and subfolders" is not considered in sld option file:

# Slide Show Sequence
Timer = 7.000000
Loop = 1
FullScreen = 1
MouseNav = 1
WatchDir = 1
TitleBar = 0
Fit = 0
StrechVideo = 1
AudioLoop = 0
High = 1
CenterWindow = 1
OnTop = 0
Frame = 1
ReadErrors = 1
RandomOrder = 1
ShowText = 0
Text = <Directory><Filename>
BackgroundColor = 0
FontName = "Courier"
FontBold = 0
FontItalic = 0
FontHeight = -13
TextOpacity = 255
TextColor = ffffff
TextPosition = 0
Effect = 2
EffectMask = 16777215
"C:\Users\Me\Pictures\"-

How knows the XnView software to integrate subfolders? Is this a general mistake?
