Restoring the browse window after tileing fails

How to reproduce this: 1) Open one ore more images 2) Tile images ("Window - Tile Horizontally" or "Window - Tile Vertically") This correctly causes the browse window to minimize. 3) Go back to the browse window (by pressing Enter or by clicking "Browser" button on toolbar) The browse window is now ...

Do you mean to ask if the input field of the lwf write option "Compress to" should have the label "bytes" next to it? I don't know, but I would think so. See my handpainted in red screenshot. I'm not very good at writing with the mouse :) Lostclown http://haukur.svalasworld.com/misc/lwf_screenshot.p...

This has actually been reported earlier.
See: http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?t=1260
I hope Pierre will have this fixed before the release of next version, if he hasn't already :)

I must say that Oliviers example describe very well how I can image I would be using this. First example: I create a 3:2 Landscape selection, move it, set it to "Free", adjust its size... and now, I want to re-use it immediately with the automatic "Use image's orientation" for next images. With [2],...

Re: Psychology ?

That's a different interpretation. And from LostClown's reaction, I believe that he understood it as [2] as well. And in this version, two sub-menus doesn't make sense as you consider only the current selection. Olivier, you are absolutly right about my understanding. I'm a [2] person :) Thanks for...

Suggestion #1 - infinite moving of a mouse/image, even if it reaches the edge of the screen I am not sure I understand you correctly. Do you mean when dragging image with right mouse button? Suggestion #2 - numpad hotkeys - 2, 4, 6, 8 for move of an image, 5 for centre - there are already hotkeys /...

Perhapse an option " [x] Case sensitive " might make sense, too. I think, 'Case sensitive' should be disabled by default and option to enable/disable it would be useful just for few users and is not needed. I agree that "Case sensitive" should be disable by default if included. If it is useful for ...

The problem here is to decide what is useful for many users and what is useful for a few or only a single user. Yes and I think it would be very useful for many users, why you think it doesn't? I believe that Pierre is right that generic replace is more useful than "replace underscore with spaces"....

Combining "File types" and "Assotiations" is a good idea and could make things more simple. But it has implications as Pierre has pointed out. You can disable assotiations by file type or file extension. But you can only disable/enable saving by file type (then there is onle default extension for th...

First I think these are really good suggestions and I look forward to seeing them implemented. I thought about the orientation submenu, again and found that it is wrong: The orientation's listed are more or less options for 'Selection - Ratio' and 'Selection - Size', so they belong to these and must...

I don't agree. I use two different file managers for that ("Partially Mixed Case" and "Convert underscore to space") and it's not very comfortable. I understand your point of view. And I also think it is perfectly normal that we disagree on this. I use a single file rename utility to rename files (...

Re: Thoughts about Categories Management

In my opinion the "Batch rename" tool of XnView is an extra feature. It should be relatively simple as there are specialized rename tools available that will always be better than XnView at this task. The strength of this feature in XnView is the ability to include image properties and EXIF/IPTC dat...

I think "File types" are more useless than useful, if there would be two file types with any names, it still might be confusing for some users, why not start a poll... Do you mean to say that this feature/option is more useless than useful or are you referring to the name of the option? Starting a ...

Do you have something better than "File save types" ? I'm not sure that less confusing... Funny how simple things can be confusing :) I really don't have a single idea for the name of this option that I am sure is the best one. When I originally commented on this I also though of just "Save types",...
