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...

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

In addition, I think "Apply to all files" works better to avoid the initial misconception that m.Th. had here: http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?p=137921#p137921 So, finally I learnt that what „Save All” means ...at least I hope! It means „Save current metadata to all files from selection”. ...

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

Again,Honestly, This "Save to all files" Is Double plural words together and not needed.... Save to files, is the correct way I don't agree. "All" is more than just plural. "Save to all files" is clearer. (edit: and I agree with Helmut's point in the other thread that clarity is more important than...

Re: Exif timestamp, file date and catalog mismatch

Hmm, it might be fixed, but not optimally. 64-bit version, Windows 7. Increment Exif:date taken (or any time) and the program spins its wheels for a while, becomes unresponsive, and in the meantime the task manager shows that the program has read and written approximately 700MB. This is roughly doub...

Re: "Updating catalog" is stuck

I bit more information on the "progress" bar. I think I have seen why the results are different for different people. The progress update only seems to happen when the scan goes to the next selected folder. If I select 5 folders then I will see 5 steps. They are very uneven, because in that example,...

Re: 0.78: Search function - possible memory leak

Bonus :!: Not only is the memory leak fixed, but the speed of search is also much faster - 20 seconds to do what took 8 minutes previously. The IPTC is still faster than XMP - 8 seconds.

Re: Sorting: EXIF metadata (Aperture, Shutterspeed, Focallen

The "1.#J" is now replaced with zero, which matches the exif:shutterspeed value.

It does mean these sort in the wrong order (faster than the fastest shutter speed), but this will do until proper exposure times are used.
