Ignore extension for Find similar files...

Post by eL_PuSHeR » Thu Jan 13, 2011 10:11 pm

Hello. I am using XnView 1.97.8 under Windows XP SP3.

I have found out that if I have the same image (same filename) in two different formats in the same folder (01.jpg and 01.png) for instance «Find Similar Files... -> same filename » will not be able to find out it's the same image. An option to ignore extension would come in handy.

Best regards.

I wrote the same file as PNG and TIFF on the same folder. It works properly now (make sure "use extension" box is ticked of course).

Thank you very much!
