Re: 0.84 and 0.85b2 - list details vanish on restart

yes.

From looking at how the DB behaves, I guess it might also happen if other software changes metadata between stopping and restarting xnviewmp.

Re: 0.84 and 0.85b2 - list details vanish on restart

update: I started with a blank DB and stepped through the process, saving the db each stage. The problem seems to be that when the large block of captions is written to, the IPTC/XMP data is updated in the file, but the metadata in the DB is not. When I restart XnviewMP it scans the modified files a...

Re: 0.84 and 0.85b2 - list details vanish on restart

Hello Pierre, I can still reproduce on 0.86, x64 on Windows 7. Sometimes ! I have done some experimenting and it seems to be reproducible under the following conditions. I have a folder with 160 jpeg images. Select a number of files, more than 10 is needed - 14 or 15 seems to make it fairly reliable...

Re: 0.84: Very slow startup on Win7 x64

In my case, it seems to be MsMpEng.exe (part of the MS antimalware service) that is chewing up all the cpu. Slow startup time is around 35 seconds :!: At a guess, it might be related to the fact that my test install is not under "Program Files", so the scanner assumes less, or it might be some weird...

Re: 0.84: UI panels % size not consistent

I use a layout with folder list on left, image file listing in the middle and categories list on the right. Both the folder and the categories list are each about 10% of full screen width. As I narrow it, the folder and categories list panes stay the same number of pixels wide, while the file listin...

Re: 0.84: Very slow startup on Win7 x64

This may or may not be related, but I have been noticing some very slow startup with 0.85b2. I do not see any problem with v0.84, but v0.85b2 seem to take more like 20 seconds to fire up occasionally . As far as I can tell, it happens the first time after I resume from hibernation, and sometimes aft...

Re: 0.84: IPTC window: Wrong workflow with multi-selection

xnview wrote:so which label?
My preference would be
  1. Apply to current Image
  2. Apply to all Images
  3. Cancel,
but whether it says "File" or "Image" I have no strong opinion.


What do others think?

Re: 0.84 and 0.85b2 - list details vanish on restart

...Is it "Details" view or "Thumbnails+Details" view? Details - one line per file- see screenshots. I have 4 installations of xnviewMP, all 64-bit, each with their own ini file, db, etc 0.84 dark theme (normal working version) 0.84 test - default theme 0.85 beta 1 0.85 beta 2 All show the bug.

Re: 0.84 ans 0.85b2 - list details vanish on restart

Works for me... - same specs as you. (Sorted by ShutterSpeed.) Hmm, obviously depends on something else as well. :? Not worth putting much effort into, as it's a simple enough step to make it display properly. For one last test, try enabling all columns and retest. In my case, the initial list appe...

Re: 0.84: Edit IPTC: "Don't Show this message..." doesn't w

For beta 3 the button naming should be changed as follows - both in "Change timestamp" and in "Edit IPTC/IIM" dialog: [Apply] [Apply to all files] [Cancel] But what does make 'Apply'? The label is not clear, the user don't know if the file is changed With 'Save' or 'Write' we know that file is chan...

Re: 0.82: Categories: Non-selection actions & on-disk metada

... Also: I did it "by hand": Steps: 1. I filtered all files with the category C1 2. Select All 3. I assigned to them "C1_New" 4. I removed from them C1 Done! I have recently been using this process, and it gives workarounds to achieve rename, delete and merge. The trick is to remember to do the st...

Re: Exif timestamp, file date and catalog mismatch

I can no longer reproduce the bug. Changing the times seems reliable and it does not entail vast I/O processing.

Re: 0.84: Edit IPTC: "Don't Show this message..." doesn't w

I just tried again: When editing IPTC/IIM data of one image file it's shown in the data pane but not in the IPTC/IIM dialog. I suspect that I'm using the IPTC/IIM dialog in a wrong way. Here's a screen capture which shows my current problem. When reopening the IPTC/IIM dialog all the fields are emp...

Re: 0.84: Edit IPTC: "Don't Show this message..." doesn't w

I have retested in 0.85 beta 2 (23 March 2017).
I can confirm that:
  • the prompts are occurring at the correct time
  • the remembered operation seems to work as expected.

Re: IPTC window: Wrong workflow with multi-selection

...But I think that I found the problem: What is "Always clear all fields" checkbox supposed to do? I noticed that it appears only on multi-selection. If you open the IPTC dialog on multiple files to change only one field like caption, you need to clear the fields before, else you'll write all fiel...
