Refresh the file list

Hi, if I export a file (or multiple files) from Exposure into a new folder in my Photographs Being Worked On Folder (for example) that new folder does not show up in XNView until and unless I exit the program and restart. F5 does not refresh the folder list. Is there any way to do this other than re...

Re: Automatically refresh Uncategorized

I agree and I'd like to see that for all categories so, for instance, if I have the filter set to Uncolored and it shows all my files (as they are all uncolored) and then I color one of them Blue (for instance) I then have to hit the drop down for filter and hit Uncolored again to update the view. A...

Backup everything

Hi, I searched for this and only found something from 2011 and it's no longer relevant. I want to be able to make a backup of everything (toolbar layout, keyboard shortcuts, layouts of windows etc). Is there a way to do that?

Thanks!

Re: Category sets

Thanks for this but I'm seeing it as only enabling me to order the sets and have some open and some closed (expanded, I guess) but not able to actually hide sets so if I have my People categor set open the still life set still shows up but down the bottom. It's not a big deal and I guess could be us...

Category sets

Hello all, I'm looking for some help here. I want to use XNview to add categories to my images. I think I don't really understand category sets and I wonder if there are any resources that explain them? When I have the pane open I can hit the little plus button to create a new set for example Landsc...

Search...doesn't

Hi all, I love XnView but I am having a major problem with it now. I go to where I keep all my images always back to 1998. I have scanned all these images (by going to the root folder, right clicking and choosing show all files (recursive)). But it doesn't remember them. I hit control and F and make...

Re: XNView not writing keywords from category sets

Now I'm even more confused. I just added another random category from the category sets and the Keywords and categories tab of the info palette does not reflect this. Please see the attached screenshot. Is there any documentation that shows clearly the difference between Categories and Keywords and ...

XNView not writing keywords from category sets

Hi, I'm suddenly realising that Keywords and category sets are two very different things. I love the category sets panel and I have just started investigating it properly. I show off all my images on Flickr and so I need not only the keywords written as keywords to output files but also the categori...

Re: Multi image selection won't open for keywords

Sorry for the slow reply. I did notice it after your last comment (thanks for that) and check marked it. So now that dialog does not pop up but when I have more than one item selected the Keywords field shows that there are no keywords applied. Is this expected behavior?
Thanks!

Re: Multi image selection won't open for keywords

Sorry, in what dialog? If I just say 'OK' then it won't load the field values but I want it to. Where can I uncheck 'Do not load field values'?

Oh, I found it but it still doesn't load the field values. Is that unavoidable?
