hidden images

Post by entryway » Wed Aug 27, 2008 10:41 am

If you have some pictures with Hidden attribute, then you cannot see them in Browser Mode and Next/Prev do not want to work also. Even if you can see hidden files in explorer. If you need to see such files you will be compelled to do some stupid work: click on file, close xnview, click on another file, close xnview, click on one more another file, close xnview...

If you open a hidden image in a hidden folder, XnView crashes upon loading.

Copy the hidden image to a normally viewable folder and everything's fine, though.

While I'm at it:

If you open an image in a certain folder, resize it or whatever and save to another folder, when you hit Next Image it begins reading the folder you saved to, not the one you're working in.

If you change an image the original thumbnail in the My Pictures folder remains. For instance, you change an image to grey but the color thumbnail stays.

When viewing full screen, closing with the Escape button works fine, but a right click and Close causes a crash.

Please please PLEASE bring back the Gamma/Brightness box that was in 1.31 and 1.74! The new one is clunky and real time viewing of adjustments are slow.

Addenda: In the "do you want to save changes" box, when you select "never ask again" works only for one session. Whenever you start Xnview again you have to make the choice again.
