Keyboard shortcuts for rating and labelling - missing

I was surprised I can't use my keyboard anymore to set/change ratings. For example I use to press Ctrl+4 or Ctrl+2 to upgrade or downgrade a picture in view of a selection. Can you have a look? This worked fine up to version MP 0.88 but in versions 0.89 and 0.90 it has no effect. I have this on 2 ma...

Re: How to get version 2.40 to play .mp4 files

Ok title is missleading, maybe it can be changed for clarity. JustRay who opened this topic was happy with the thumbnails, it was enough for him. For me still I need to find a way forward. Improving stability and rendering of video in MP with internal player is the one. I'll get back via another top...

Re: How to get version 2.40 to play .mp4 files

I know with MP, the Internal Video Player could be used but it looks unstable on some machines, choppy video or stuttering sound (but these are in other topics): Unreliable for my application. I thought the method of adding the file FFmpeg.exe in the AddOn folder was still supported (especially for ...

Re: How to get version 2.40 to play .mp4 files

Both with MP and with the Classic one. My goal was to use XnView on an USB key with FFmpeg in the AddOn as described here.

Doing so I can demo slideshows anywhere without need to install K-lite codecs on the target machine (which I can't impose to the PC owners).

Re: How to get version 2.40 to play .mp4 files

I use to have an USB key with my last pictures ready for slideshow wherever I go. The drive just have XnView (Classic, last 2.44) and a small script that create a slide file(.sld) and starts it. Keeping in mind I don't want to install the K-Lite Codec Pack on any machines of my friends and family I ...

Re: Rotation and EXIF Orientation field

Seems fixed in 0.88 :) Actually not :( I found some of my last pictures not appropriately displayed due to this persistent bug. I made another test with 2 pictures and both showed the same. I found also the thumbnail is not updated. 1 sample shown below in the browser and the 2 sample files are att...

Re: Need to change the location of settings

Yes, with the default option "User", settings are stored in the user profile. Each user of the machine sets his own preferences, independently: The original idea of the 2nd option "Program (XnView)" was to have a single .ini file so all users have the same settings for consistency (for exemple "Keep...

Re: 0.82: Constantly hangs when viewing videos (20.000+ videos)

Hi Pierre sorry for the delay. I realised I used a completely new .ini file whereas I used to save mine before deploying a new version. Here is the feedback. The issue described comes when the option "useInternalVideoPlayer" is set to true and this is by default on any new installation :( On my own ...

Re: Need to change the location of settings

Hello, Can we have a change implemented in a future version? Unless I'm wrong, the options are made to switch from "Single user mode" aka each user of a machine have is own settings to "Multiple users mode" aka all users shares a same set of settings. Since my original post there are now 2 options o...

Re: Improve the Rotation Dialogue

I didn't knew that :) Steps: 1. Double-click on an image to open in Viewer 2. Edit | Crop (or press Shift + X) 3. Select an area around the "horizon" - take care to have an edge close to "horizon" 4. Go with the mouse NEAR to the one of the corners of the crop rectangle till you'll see a "rotating" ...

Re: Horizon Straightener Needed

the angle adjustment slider is very sensitive, making it hard to make small angle adjustments without using the digital angle display which is slower I fully agree with you, the sensisivity of the slider is too high and using the up/down arrow is too slow but I would not recommend to add "yet anoth...

Re: 0.82: Constantly hangs when viewing videos (20.000+ videos)

Issue is back, since version 0.87 & 0.88.

It happened to me many time, with multiple .MP4 files, just after reading.
It should be noted also that the sound is bad, a kind of loop, echoing and still after the video ended. We have to close XnView MP

Improve the Rotation Dialogue

Currently the free rotation dialogue consist of a ruler and a arrow that we can move with either the mouse or the keyboard. Moving the arrow on the ruler is not easy, sometime too reactive. Also, the rotation is always centred with the image, which is not always optimal. For example the main subject...

Audio volume set to 0 by default, not saved

I found this issue after having installed the last version (0.88) without having saved my .ini file. I was surprised there was no sound for the videos. After having changed the volume it's ok but I encountered the same issue with the next video. The volume parameter in the .ini file is never udated....
