Re: Summary: Custom sort (the essence of related threads)

Hello zips,

thanks a lot for taking the time to write up this extensive summary. :-)

Are there any new trends, hints or decisions concerning this subject ?

Is it a function worth hoping for in XnView?
Or is the implementation just not possible because such functions dont work or cope with the general architecture of the program such as designed today (Pierre, 6 nov 2005: "pas basé sur une BDD")?

(Is it worth reasking and suggesting this feature from time to time or would it just be a waste of time and energy of the forum members because this functionality can definitely not be arranged within XnView?)
Judging from Pierre's comment it certainly seems unlikely that the feature will be implemented into XnView v1.9.
That said, I wouldn't be surprised if there's a way to make it work in the new multi-platform version of XnView (which is a complete rewrite of the code, AFAIK).
But that's just my two cents...

    Sorry for not responding earlier. Right now I'm still playing catch-up with what's been happening on the forum since Easter.
    Anyways – Welcome to!
