Can cache contents be preserved when files moved?

Hi experts - I have noticed that when photo files are moved from one folder to the other that the corresponding cache is rebuilt for the new folder and remains for the old folder. Is there a way for Xnview to preserve the cache contents and move the cache as the files are moved? That would save a lo...

I think that a couple of minor tweaks to the IPTC keywords edit page would cause a 2-4X speedup. See thread : http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?t=5117

I spoke (um ... typed ?) too soon. There actually is a keyboard equivalent of MOUSE(1) : you type TAB 11 times to get focus to the keyword text field. Perhaps this keyword text field could be ordered earlier in the tab cycle. The current tab cycle takes me to many form fields that I rarely touch. Ba...

small changes to improve speed up IPTC keyword annotation

Here are a few suggestions of IPTC dialog GUI changes that could speed up keyword annotation. The goal of all of these suggestions is to reduce the number of times that hands must move from the keyboard to the mouse by eliminating certain required mouse clicks. By reducing the number of keyboard<->m...

mem leak fixed in 1.82

I have confirmed that the memory leak problem is gone with my original 25,000 images and 60GB search when using 1.82. We can consider this case closed.

Thanks !

When you search in a folder with this MRW, you have a leak?? Yes, when I create a folder containing 5 copies of that MRW file and then search that directory then I see the leak behavior. Here's another attempt of posting the WinXP perfmeter screen shot of what it looks like on memory consumption wh...

I've got some more clues to isolate this problem. Of all of the files in my image archive it looks like the .MRW files (forgot about those !) which are the raw output from my camera (Minolta A2) create. I've uploaded an example of a MRW file that causes this problem on my computer to <a href="http:/...

I should have mentioned that of the 25000 image files I was searching that only about 3000 have IPTC information (yet). I am in the process of using xnview to add keywords to my images and am only about 15% complete. So when I had the memory consumption problem xnview was searching a combination of ...

When I search a hierarchical set of directories containing about 25,000 images and 60GB in size, the XNVIEW memory consumption goes through the max VM limit within ...
