System of measurement based on language

Postby helmut » Fri Mar 10, 2017 4:39 pm

Software should be smart and support the user. I'd find it good if XnView would set system of measurement (metric or imperial) based on the language setting. Sure enough this is just a clever default; the user still can change the system of measurement in the Settings dialog.

Better is to read the actual value from the OS. At least on Windows the API provides the measurement system.

Good idea, m.Th.! Reading this info using the Windows API would be a very good solution for all Windows users.
