0.86 Favorites pane sometimes empty

Post by HanVroon » Mon Jun 26, 2017 3:12 pm

Hi Pierre,

Sometimes XnViewMP start up with an empty Favorites pane. I have 4 entries in it and it hardly changes.
After months seeing this bug I finally know when it happens in my situation: after a screen capture!
The bug is new since version 0.85, in 0.84 it doesn't go wrong. I can also recall this happening two years ago some time in an old version.

To reproduce:
1- Start XnViewMP and notice that the Favorites pane is not empty (some bookmarks in bookmark.ini).
2- From the Browser screen, make a screen capture with the Capture button or menu Tools, Capture.
3- Close the tab with the capture, saving it or not doesn't matter.
4- Close XnViewMP (whether or not you first do some other things like browsing, opening and closing files, doesn't matter).
5- Open XnViewMP again, the Favorites pane is empty.
6- Close Favorites with the x in the title bar of the Favorites pane.
7- Open Favorites again through menu View, Data pane, Favorites.
8- The Favorites pane is filled again.

Because I found it weird, I retried more than 5 times, every time after a capture the Favorites pane was empty.

Best regards,
Han

Tested in version 0.87 beta 1, the bug is fixed.
After making a screen capture, closing that tab (not save the capture), close XnViewMP and start XnViewMP again, the Favorites pane is still filled with the favorites configured!

Thank you, Pierre.
