Displaying JPGs with metadata in browser mode

I've seen a mention of this problem somewhere, but I can't find it now. Apologies is if this is a duplicate. I'm running XnView 1.96.2 on Vista. It appears that when a JPG image has any metadata, it displays much smaller than it should in browser mode. http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/8849/0pic.th...

Re: Thunderbird email client

You didn't say if you were using XP or Vista. In Vista, XnView did exactly what it should: it tried to send the email message using the email program specified as the system default in Windows. I also use Thunderbird, but it was NOT set as the default mail program. So when I tried to send an image f...

Re: Folder Missing

Thanks, Marsh. I read that info about network folders, I don't think it applies here. Also, I have more info. The previous scenario did involve looking up a directory tree on a network computer. However, I have now experience exactly--and I mean exactly--the same thing on a local computer, this time...

Re: XnView as a photo organizer?

I am an enthusiastic user of XnView, have recommended it to many people, and expect to use it forever. However, I use it for what it is best at and made for, and not for what it was not made for. I use Picasa for the things it is good at, and XnView for the things it is good at (most things). My sug...

Folder Missing

This problem--if it is a problem, and not my mistake--has been around for quite a while, but I have had trouble proving it. But I think I've got it this time. Xnview sometimes does not display a folder. It's just missing. Please see this image: http://img26.imageshack.us/i/0pic.png/ (click on the im...

Hello to you too, Helmut! I hope you noticed that my bug/problem/situation report began with a friendly--if humorous--hello to you. I'm still making help files, and still interested in helping with XnView, and still don't know a way around the problems of (a) language, and (b) updating. Any new idea...

Thanks for the quick reply, Pierre. I think this is a case where one should not have to be an expert XnView user--and therefore know about things like "ignore read errors"--in order to open the image. In my opinion, it would be better to open the file when asked, and then display a message saying "f...

Damaged/corrupt image file handling

Hello gentlemen, (and also Helmut) Today I received a picture from a friend, but what I tried to open it I got an error saying "<Big> Warning: Error reading the file <filename>". This was in a standard Windows error dialog box. Problem #1: There should be something on the dialog box error message th...

More Grid Settings Problems This is more of a design issue than a bug, but I think it should be addressed. When you set the grid size to 100 pixels, the grid is made at 100 pixels. This seems sensible--but it is not. Or perhaps it is; what do users want and expect? When I am using the grid, I want i...

Okay, then there is no problem (except with the language). However, please confirm--again?--that all defaults for "do not change date/time stamp" functions are NO. I can't imagine that I would have ever changed this, but the one in "Tools » Options... » General » File Operations" was YES. It could h...

Based on XnTriq's comments and observations, I think that the text should be "Keep original date/time attributes" so as to agree with the same question/option in Tools » Options... » Browser » Misc... That language is a little better than what I suggested, I think, and it would be best to use the sa...

Ah yes, there it is. Sure enough, "Keep date/time for saving" is checked. So good, the program is behaving as it is told. However, I now have two design comments/requests: 1. The language is not good. Perhaps in French or other languages the meaning is clear, but it is not clear in English. I sugges...

1. The "Add Text" dialog box does offer a "keep original date" option, so I did not set it there. 2. I can find nothing in Tools...Options....General or ...System Integration that offers such a choice. 3. The only place to set that option ("keep original date") seems to be on the Tools....Batch Proc...

File date not updating

xnView 1.95.4 on XP SP2:

When using "Add text" to add some text, and then saving the PNG file, the date of the file is NOT changed. I have about 80 examples.
