I can't find those specific versions of XnC/GS, but I'll try to hunt them down and try them out.

Re: Show thumbnails of PDFs

No, I can't view or preview PDFs in any way in XnView. I will get in touch with Ghostscript and see if they can help. Their documentation is way too long and complicated to read, so I'll ask them! Before doing that, could you ensure that in the viewer, File > Format settings... -- Read tab the opti...

Re: XnConvert not seeing Ghostscript install

I have fired up my Windows 7 computer -- I'm normally in Linux on my modern laptop and prefer not to boot into Windows 10 -- to check for a proven combination of XnConvert and Ghostscript: XnConvert 1.83 x64 Ghostscript 9.15 x64 I'm also attaching a PDF proven to open with the above combination. :D ...

Re: Show thumbnails of PDFs

Yes, this was already enabled! So it doesn't explain why you have no PDF thumbnails... :( Are you able to view PDF images if you double-click on a thumbnail? If not, looks like a Ghostscript version compatibility issue. Note regarding a comment above: There is no reason why you can't have both GS 6...

Re: Add Text to Image is blocky

More: It would be interesting to know how text applied to the same image using another image editing software displays, I suspect about the same, but if better that would suggest that the text tool in XnView MP could potentially be improved. Regarding pasting your images into Word, adding text and t...

Re: Add Text to Image is blocky

The best results I get are from importing a picture to Microsoft Word, typing the name (usually in Arial Black), then print screen, and importing clipboard into Xnview, then crop how I want, and save (still in Xnview). Interesting, I wonder if the text added in Word is anti-aliased: if you zoom in ...

In Tools > Settings > File list -- Custom filter you have PDF selected?

I'm not sure whether that is a default setting, I would have thought that it would be.

Re: Add Text to Image is blocky

I like to put a name on a photo in case it gets separated from its label/description. When I click on Image/Add Text, the process goes all right. But the name is so blocky it is not attractive at all, and quite unusable. Am I missing something or is a smooth text impossible. Thanks I would suspect ...

Re: XnConvert not seeing Ghostscript install

Due to unexpected issues with new GS versions for the second time recently, the solution most likely to work would be to install an earlier GS version a year more old as a temporary fix... :( Edit: As the XnConvert version you are using might have been modified to work with GS after the first issue,...

Re: Navigate through images in random order (without creating a slideshow)

The screenshot you posted to another software shows a 'Go' button which XnView MP currently doesn't have, maybe it could be added if Pierre likes your suggestion. I tried to analyse your need above, and as I thought about it saw more and more possible interfaces that might meet your need, and also t...
