Ctrl+Alt+S shortcut for Export not working on Linux version

Nothing happens when I press Ctrl+Alt+S with the cursor over an image in the Browser, or while viewing an image.

I wouldn't complain if Alt+T then "E" worked, but I see that submenu items don't have accelerators at all (!).

0.89 still: Some keys don't work as Next/Previous File shortcuts

Still not fixed in Linux Version 0.89 64bits (Jan 15 2018).

I did not have this problem in version 0.86.

F2 to rename doesn't work in v0.88

Another regression: pressing F2 to rename a file no longer works in Viewer mode. I haven't tried to reconfigure that keyboard shortcut.

Can't set "A" as the keyboard shortcut in Viewer mode

Another regression in 0.88 (this worked fine in a previous version): I can't set the key "A" to be the shortcut for "Good (move to next photo)" in Viewer mode. It does work in Browser mode, but in viewer mode, when I press "A", nothing happens. There was no warning about any conflict when I set that...

Can't view images after renaming folder

After I rename a folder and view files from another folder, I can no longer view files from the first folder. 1. Make sure you can view files from folder "A" and sibling folder "B". 2. In the Folders tree, rename "A" to "A2". 3. View a file from folder B. 4. Click back on A and try to view another f...

Menu disappears after viewing an image

I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 and the latest version of XnView MP, 0.88, introduced a regression: After I view an image from the browser, the menu disappears. It's replaced with the file path. In the system settings, Appearance -> Behavior, I have Menu visibility = Always displayed. Animated GIF screencast at...

File size not updated after saving JPG

1. Open a typical 16MP JPEG file, which will by about 5MB in size
2. Select a small portion of it, Shift+X, then Ctrl+S to save.

Notice how in the status bar, the original (large) size is still displayed.

Make it easy to delete keywords rapidly

When importing images, sometimes I encounter images with a lot of spam tags. I haven't found a way to just delete all tags. So I went to the Edit IPTC dialog: Can't delete keywords easily.png The problem here is that there's no shortcut to delete a tag. Pressing Delete doesn't work. If I click the "...

Re: "Updating catalog" is stuck

Update: in the meantime the process finished, even though the progress bar was always stuck at that very beginning position.

So please definitely implement a more granular progress bar, maybe updated every 10 files to not spend too much time on the update itself.

0.84 MacOS: Progress bar "Updating catalog" is stuck

I have a folder with 66,000 files across a few hundred directories. I've deleted the thumbnails cache because the Categories were filled with tag spam that came from images outside that folder I wanted to focus on, and then I selected all that folder's files and directories in Browser, and ran View ...

How can I assign categories from the viewer?

In the Browser, you can assign categories by pressing F9 to focus the Categories panel. But that doesn't work when viewing an image. If I right click and choose Properties -> Categories, I get a completely useless read-only list of all categories, with checkboxes that can't be checked, and no auto-c...

0.84: Creating new file or folder clobbers selection

1. In a folder, select some images. 2. Using another application, create a dummy empty folder within the folder at step 1. 3. Notice how no images are selected now. I understand XnView receives a notification that there was a filesystem change in the current directory, and that change might affect o...

Re: Tagging (categories)

Yes. This is how gThumb and F-Spot do tag autocompletion, and it's much faster to tag many images with those apps than with XnView MP, using the keyboard. Already there. Use the Categories Pane (F9 to switch focus from/to it) and write down „vacantion”[enter]„kids”[enter]„2017”[enter] F9 doesn't wo...

Tagging currently sucks

I think the tagging system is outdated and should get a major overhaul. Agree. Please see my suggestion for making tagging much simpler for the vast majority of users . 3. When opened, there should be option select one or even multiple categories by mouse but way more efficient would be an addition...

Having both Keywords and Categories is unnecessarily complic

Do we loose [sic] users more than we gain if we change „categories” to „keywords”? You lose users by having unnecessary complexity. How many users genuinely need a difference between "categories" and "keywords"? I consider myself a power user (worked as a software eng. at Google and Yahoo!, have be...
