Selection of file format related color for the browser

Options>Browser>File List> [Use Colour Based On File Format] was on.

Turned it off and now I can see the problem I had earlier isn't a problem at all.. its just been over ridden by this other option.. I suppose what would be nice if the user could choose the background colours per file format?
Though the original suggestion has been (not) made quite a while ago, I'd like to submit it myself - as a very low priority request. Being able to select colors of file types for the browser labels would be nice.

On the other hand, for those that are less patient and always ready to take a shortcut - if you can express a color as three values of R-G-B, find your "xnview.ini" and look up the values under the section [Browser]... :wink:

:) Hello !

• That is already possible for a while, please have a look HERE :wink:
- Like indicated in that chapter of our Manual, that works too for the thumb nails labels…
