Problem with opening of some file

Post by ker » Sun Oct 04, 2015 12:36 pm

I can't open files with special symbols or hieroglyph in file name. For example xnveiw does not open files with such symbols in a file name as ▲, ほ, ~. It leads to an error: Error opening the file <F:\^.jpg> (symbol - ▲) <F:\~.jpg> (symbol - ~) <F:\?.jpg> (symbol - ほ)
OS: windows 7

XnView 'Classic' doesn't support Unicode...

You can use XnViewMP which is still in beta (or XnConvert for batch processing) if it supports the functions you need.

Then it is clear. I thought it there was a bug.

"Doesn't suport Unicode natively" doesn't mean "can't get access to file's content in principle".
Hmm, ker Joined: Sun May 05, 2013 4:12 am, first post Sun Oct 04, 2015 12:36 pm. XnView is good software if you have encountered first issue only 2,5 years after joining forum, right?

Yes, but sometimes it is slightly inconvenient.

I do not argue with this. With xnveiw of another it is not necessary.
