How to save the window configuration

Post by Rolf Wiegand »

Hello,
I am just beginning to use the new version 1.90. When I size the tree-window, the dataset-window, an the preview-window, these settings are not saved on exiting the program. Whenever I start xnview, the tree-window and the dataset-window are minimized an I have to resize them.
How can I save my configuration of the windows?

Thanks for help.

Strange, all pane are saved for me, do you use an old xnview.ini?

I am having the same problem. I did an uninstall of the 1.82 version before I installed the 1.90 version, and I use the .ini to save.

Try with a clean .ini?

That worked. :) I renamed the old .ini to .saf and saved a new .ini after I created all the settings... it saved the window positions just fine. :) Thanks for a great program!

Works after deletion of xnview.ini

Post by Rolf Wiegand »

Hello,

after deletion of the xnview.ini the window configuration is saved. But this solution is not very satisfying. I spent some time to set all options to what I want them to be. Now I have to remeber all my settings and do the changes again.

Is there a possibility to migrate the changes from xnview 1.84.2 to 1.90?

Thanks for your help.

Could you send me your xnview.ini to check the problem?

thanx!
But I think something is going wrong...

I opened xnview.ini, deleted the line with Maximize etc etc... , saved, opened xnview, changed something (just to see if it works), closed, then re-opened, and It did not worked. It's like the first time I've opened it and also the xnview.ini has again (very strange :!: ) the line deleted just seconds before...
I cannot understand what is wrong. :|

No results with deleting or commenting the line.
(and the commented line as Clo said, pops out uncommented in another location inside the same file)
