Re: Question about the browser XMP tab in 1.97.4

Sorry but could you explain me more? XMP tab in XnView 1.97 is only text, in XnViewMP you have all items in a readable form That's exactly what I mean. "Only text" reminds me of the old Linux tarball version. "Readable form", columns and data, to me looks a lot tidier and up-to-date. I take it by y...

Question about the browser XMP tab in 1.97.4

I'd prefer not to install/upgrade until I have some sense of what work has been done on it (if any). In the last MP version (Ubuntu 9.04 on a laptop) I downloaded and tried, the XMP tab in the Browser was, to coin a phrase, "the soul of tidy-ness." It was almost shameful to go back to the 1.97.4 "st...

Was browsing FAT volumes ever dropped/deprecated?

I had it happen just last night that while I could browse a single folder (with the option set to Browse from View, or however it's phrased) on a FAT-16 formatted smart-card mounted USB via a flash-drive style reader, clicking on the disk at its drive letter (M:), navigating or copying between folde...

Re: XnView download

Stick to the underscores. I don't know about the rest of you, but they always seemed to hint at (and often deliver the message of) "this is reliable freeware/open source you're downloading: look- we're naming our installer L/Unix-style" to me. This from a fellow who used to get about 90% of his Mac ...

Add one more item to "View>File"

I just looked at the Customize Toolbar dialog for XnView 1.97.4 Windows, and there was no "cmd_" string listed for this function; otherwise I wouldn't be requesting it. A "Go To" command that calls up a small dialog box (limited input to numbers in the editable field), maybe with a slash and the tot...

Re: How to create xnview deb package for Ubuntu Karmic (9.10

Has no-one here heard of the "checkinstall" command? Does anybody know whether or not the "ordinary" diff utils work on Debian package files like the ones for K/Ubuntu, or whether the repo's have special ones with GUI wraps that can be used. Approaching this "one-size-fits-all-in-9.10=&-later" insta...

Re: Show Desktop in folder tree

Two ways it could be done. 1. A BrowseDefaults.ini file where Desktop is "pointed to" by its actual path, yet still ends up graphically displayed at the top of a Tree View column; 2. A toolbar button that "zips" one to the Desktop folder of their login, yet still displays it nested as it would norma...

Re: thumbnails cache

This is an option I would also like to have available. So that if I am looking at a folder on a different PC to mine, I don't need to re-do the thumbnails as the thumbs file is already in the folder. There's a practical application. Almost like an MS Expression Media catalog file or an iPhoto or F-...

Metadata: what goes "out" should be let back "in."

Or, in less obscure terms, why not Import the same files you Export , instead of requiring the user to translate/trans-format the data to .iptc files (something I, recaling test-driving Canto Cumulus and Extensis Portfolio for PPC Macs in 1996, still don't know exactly how to do). Barring that, an I...

Re: Load/Save slideshow list to a text file?

Slideshow lists are in, good. I'm a little annoyed that, if you <Esc> from a running slideshow, then <Esc> again, then go back to Tools>Slideshow, you notice that XnView has unloaded your list from memory. IrfanView remembers lists. Where IrfanView falls down, for me, is that it will not read in the...

Re: Slide show audio - new suggestions

Another suggestion (see my recent post in MP Feedback for more): m3u playlist support or an XnPlay Mini-player or "linking" plug-in to a decent freeware playlister like AIMP (Windows), Totem (Linux) or the MPlayer GUI (OS X). From that MP Suggestions post: # .m3u or some kind of sophisticated playli...

...the XMP tab that the Browser has to Edit>Properties.

And maybe do it for the WinNT builds before XnView sees it's 2.0th birthday, too?
