0.84 UI: Entries missing in context menu

Post by helmut » Thu Jan 26, 2017 5:23 pm

XnView MP 0.84

Currently, several menu entries are missing in the context menu of the browser:
Open in file explorer
Copy pathname
Compare...
New folder
Print...
Batch Rename...
JPG Lossless transformations.. :bug:

Notes:
- This is not a real bug. But differences in the user interface of XnView Classic and XnView MP are irritating and should be avoided whenever possible This is why I'm posting this as a bug.

- In some respects the menu of XnView MP might be better than XnView Classic, and in some respects the other way round. In first instance XnView MP should have the same menus as XnView Classic unless decided differently for both programs.

Which context menu? On the folder in the left pane, on a file in the right pane, or in empty space in the right pane (the latter two are the same except most options are grayed out when a file is not selected)? In the left pane, I have 'Explorer' and in the right both on a file and in space I have 'Open in file explorer.' These all do the same thing. I don't have 'Copy pathname' or 'Compare...' in any of them. I have 'New Folder' in the left pane. I don't have 'Print...' or 'Batch Rename...' anywhere. I don't have 'JPG Lossless transformations...' but I do have 'Convert into > JPEG' in the right pane.

Thank you for your reply, vertigo. I mean the context menu when right clicking on a file in XnView browser. I compared again with XnView Classic and these are the ones that are missing:

Missing entries in Browser » File list » Context menu of selected image file(s):

Open GPS location in GeoHack...
Copy pathname
New Folder
Print...
Send by email...
Batch Rename...
JPEG Lossless transformations >
Compare...
Set as Wallpaper...
Rebuild thumbnails

None of those exist in my context menu either. As an aside, selecting 'Image data' in the context menu doesn't seem to do anything. Am I missing something or is that a bug?

Thank you for confirming, vertigo. 'Image data (better: 'Copy image data') copies the image data (=contents of the image) to the clipboard.

Still don't see copy pathname, send by email, JPEG lossless transformation, or set as wallpaper.
