Copy Pathname ... + File.ext

Post by AEN007 »

18October2013
As far as I can tell the XvV FilExplorer cannot copy the FULL Path+File.ext ...
Is that the case?
If not, I could/would really use it! ... with a HotKey combo ... of course ...
Maybe XnV could allow HotKeyCombos to function differently ...
depending on if the FilEx was "active" ... or NOT ...

In XnView browser, you can copy the image path + filename with extension using the copy function:
1. Open the XnView browser
2. Select an image
3. Select menu "Edit > Copy" or press "Ctrl + C" or use context menu (right click) "Copy"
4. Paste the clipboard contents to a text editor.

Explanation: When copying an image to the clipboard, XnView will copy the image in various formats to the clipboard: The image data will be copied as graphics and the pathname + filename with extension will be copied as text to the clipboard. When pasting to a text editor, the text format will be used for pasting.

Ok, i'll add a hidden setting in 1.90.3
CopyClipboard=0 (filename & image), CopyClipboard=1 (image)

A good addition, XnTriq. I completely forgot about this UI-less options that had been added.
