Ratings not being saved

Postby jww » Mon May 01, 2017 1:16 am

Hi,

I'm trying to set image ratings but when I go look at the browser data pane -> filters and click on the different ratings I don't see anything come up. And when I go back to the images I've rated it seems it didn't save the ratings.

I'm using 0.84 on XP. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I can't use anything newer than 0.84 as XP seems to longer be supported.

Thank you!

It should work.

I think that some settings / file permissions of DB are wrongly put.

Try with Coloring and Keywords / Categories. Are they saved?

Colors work but ratings work only if a color is assigned.

File permissions for xnview.db are fine as the file size and timestamp duly change and the colors survive program restarts.

Bleh! :-)

Ah yes there it is, "export ratings in XMP data" and that works. So that means write the ratings to the xnview.db SQLite database. Sorry didn't understand the terms. Thanks!

If this is true, then it is definitely a bug.
