Re: Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

That will take a fair bit of thinking to wrap my mind around all of those fine points - not at all self-evident to me.
Thank you very much for your explanations & help on this topic

Re: Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

Thank you very much, Michel038, for sticking with me on this. If I understood the process better, I would not mind to have a go at writing up your comments as an answer for the Wiki, though, I have never even tried to write for it. For my own use, I have already started to compose a number of topics...

Re: Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

As part of trying to understand the way categories are handled, I have saved the contents of my 'Categories' tree and then cleared out all data. In "Settings -> Browser -> Metadata -> IPTC" checking/unchecking "Keywords -> Import XMP Subject or IPTC keyword to Catalog's Categories'"seems to make no ...

Re: Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

It is always hard to describe such a feature concisely and completely within the given space.
I guess I will have to try and play with it and see how things react

Re: Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

In the example sent, the picture has Headstone, Headstones, Grabstein keyword but not Categories & Genealogy Just where all of the data ought to appear I am not really sure, nor where XVP is expecting to find it, and how it will react when not it does not find what it expects ... It is very possibl...

Re: Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

@xnview I have just noticed that not all images in the same directory exhibit the same problem. One in particular seems to tick all the proper boxes, as far as I can tell at this point, so quite possibly the problem lies in the meshing of my categories tree and the actual data in both the database ...

Re: Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

Whether the DB interface has changed, I can't be sure. There have been a couple of updates since I added the data to the test image. It is even possible that I modified the Categories structure. A detailed change log or version control would be very useful, but I have not figured out how to accompli...

Re: Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

Executing the commands you suggested does give me some of the expected results, including _some_ of the keywords as well as filling in the 'Assigned' list as far as I have tested the data at this point. 2 issues: 1 - not all check boxes back up to the trunk of the tree are selected 2 - is there a wa...

Re: Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

Since the images refer to people in a genealogy environment, I have blurred certain details.
If that is a problem, I can provide more details, but off-line to avoid privacy issues.

Categories panel/tree data not updating at startup

I has been a while since I last used XnviewMP (XvP) to add category data to some of my images and now that I have come back to trying to review that data I am a bit puzzled. FWIW, I am now working with 0.98.0 under Win 10 64-bit (updates are current) Last time I worked with XvP I saved my category t...

Re: Does XnViewMMP update XMP CreatorTool?

Thank you
looking forward to this, though I do see a problem of how one would keep any kind of history or(version control) ;-)
Because I assume that by adding any particular application's name here, that application would be blamed for any and all issues left behind by any previous tool.

Re: Does XnViewMMP update XMP CreatorTool?

Adding such a feature certainly would be of great interest to my work with family photos and family tree research. :D
Is there an easy way to transfer the topic to Suggestions?

Re: Does XnViewMMP update XMP CreatorTool?

Thank you for reminding me :) After finding some of my older images recently, which did have some PersonInImage data, I was trying to figure out how it got there. It must have been Picasa which I used some time ago, before it was abandoned by Google. Now I am trying to find a replacement so that I c...
