Re: Companion File Handing in MP?

Hi Pierre, I do use "show companions". If I turn it off, the .xmp files are hidden, but not the .JPG files. I don't know if it's significant, but I've noticed that the .RW2 and .JPG are uppercase, but .xmp is lowercase. It shouldn't make a difference under Windows, but I don't know about your code. ...

Re: Companion File Handing in MP?

No. I tried renaming a .ARW to .CR2, but it didn't work. I also tried making sure that all files have lowercase extensions, but that doesn't make any difference.

Re: Companion File Handing in MP?

Hi Pierre,
Thanks. I have installed beta 4. That solves the context menu issue, but I still can't drag/drop to copy/move, but if I do a cut and paste it works OK.
Is there anything else I can check?

Re: Companion File Handing in MP?

That may be the problem. I followed the link in your post to the beta page viewtopic.php?f=108&t=37553, but that seems to be for Beta 1. How do I find the latest beta?

Re: Companion File Handing in MP?

Hi Pierre,
Definitely no context menu for me. I have tried both left and right clicking in both columns...
I show companion files - I run with all three boxes checked.

Re: Companion File Handing in MP?

Hi Pierre, Drag and drop definitely doesn't work for me, if I drag the raw file. It works fine in XnView. My rules are as follows: cr2 -> xmp;jpg crw -> xmp;jpg arw -> xmp;jpg rw2 -> xmp;jpg There's no context menu for me in the settings dialog, files tab. Are you setting the rules somewhere else? R...

Re: Companion File Handing in MP?

Hi Pierre, Thanks for what you have done so far. However I'm sorry, but there are a lot of bugs in this implementation. It might have been easier for you to copy what you had working so well in XnView. Here's what I have found so far: Companion file handling does not work with drag/drop move or copy...

Companion File Handing in MP?

Hi, Could someone please confirm whether MP has the ability to set up equivalent companion file handing to XnView Classic and if so how to access it. In Classic, there's a simple .INI section which implements exactly what I need, for example to move XMP and Canon/Panasonic/Sony Raw files with the JP...

Re: Write Ratings to Externally Readable Data?

Thanks, Pierre.
If I have set ratings in XnView (standard version) can these be read by XnView MP, or would I need to do my ratings there as well?

Write Ratings to Externally Readable Data?

Hi,
Is there any way to set up XnView so that ratings get written to an externally-readable form as I apply them? The ideal would be a sidecar XMP file, but writing the info back to the JPG EXIF or IPTC data would also work. Can it do this?
Thanks

Re: Can't See Changes to Thumbnail Labels

Hi,
I fixed the initial problem - I just needed to change the "View As" to "Thumbnail + Label".

Supplementary question:
Is there any way to see the description from the descript.ion file in the thumbnail label?
Thanks

Can't See Changes to Thumbnail Labels

Hi, I want to display the IPTC Caption for my thumbnails as well as the filename. Under Tools/Options/Thumbnails/ThumbnailLabel I have added IPTC: Caption at the top of my list, but the data does not display. I have tried "Rebuild Thumbnails" for the directory but nothing changes. What am I doing wr...
