With this persisting bug in the categories feature in your classic XnView application, here with no automatic refresh of the “category.db” or at least a manual possibility to do so, the categories feature in my opinion is useless.
i need to fix it but not easy in XnView classic...
But how could I move from XnView to XnViewMP with all(!) my old settings?
I already tried to paste my old xnview.ini in XnViewMP to have the same layout, menue-orders etc. as in XnView, but this didn’t really work.
No you can't, you need to change the settings of MP version
As I see there isn’t a “category.db” in XnViewMP. So how can I import or transfer my “category.db” to XnView MP? And secondly, does the category database from XnViewMP follow changes with file-names or file-paths or would I be confronted with the same problem like in XnView, here with lost categories after file-operations like rename or move?
You can import category.db in MP Settings>Catalog>Tools>Import category.db
Yes, renaming/moving change correctly
And in MP, you can use XMP metadata to store keywords, or even (in next release) use sidecar...
