Categories greyed out and no IPTC data

Using XnViewMP 0.93.1 (64 bit) on my Macbook, I've just added some new photos and when I try to categorise them, all the categories are greyed out, when a photo is selected (see attached screen shot). (If I select an old, already tagged photo, it becomes active). I have never seen this before, but c...

Duplication of paths and images in the DB

When selecting photos using the Category filter, I noticed some photos appear a number of times. On exploring the XnView.db file with sqlite3, I noticed that there seems to be mass duplication of paths; specifically entries that start '@' which appear to be my top-level photos directory, and also fu...

Re: How to keep categories in sync with IPTC

You would like when you add a keywords in IPTC view, the changes is made in database too, right? Sort of. At the moment when I add a photo to a category, XNViewMP is automatically adding the IPTC and updating the database (which is great). What I'd like is, when I copy the photo from machine 2 onto...

Re: How to keep categories in sync with IPTC

Yeah, I have the "modify" option set (I need this anyway so that rsync can identify which photos to sync), but XN is still not picking up the change.

I put a feature request in: http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=33567

Watch folders

It would be great if XnViewMP would watch folders for changes - including files being updated - so it can re-read the IPTC information and update the internal DB if the file is up dated. For example: I keep copies of all our photos on 2 machines, my wife tends to work on the desktop, me the laptop. ...

Re: How to keep categories in sync with IPTC

Thanks for the quick reply! How are you removing them, Make sure you have options set under: -Options>> Metadata>> Read/Write to the db. Yep, I've got that set. I think maybe I was being impatient in this element, because if I unset a category (either by selecting the photo and clicking "remove cate...

How to keep categories in sync with IPTC

Apologies if this is a really basic question, but I'm new to XnViewMP (and IPTC). What I want to be able to do is to 'tag' photos in some way with custom tags (like 'holiday', 'family', 'mum' etc), maybe multiple tags per picture, and have those stored in the file data so that I can then easily sear...
