Sections in .ini file

Post by helmut » Mon Aug 29, 2005 8:28 pm

In XnView 1.80 the reading and writing of .ini files was redone to speed up program start. This works very well, just a minor issue:

For all I know, in older versions the individual sections (e.g. [Browser])were separated by a blank line. In 1.80 this is no longer the case which makes the .ini file a bit harder to read.

It would be good if this single blank line could be added, again.

(This is a minor issue since most users will never open and read the .ini file.)

• Hi !
…It would be good if this single blank line could be added, again. …
- I agree, indeed; currently the INI file is a thick pack of characters…
(This is a minor issue since most users will never open and read the .ini file.)
• And I guess they are not right… It should be nice to know all allowed INI variable entries, and to have a bunch of supplemental ones (not written by the Options). Just adding such entries by hand could solve many minor issues, by setting some special configurations in cases which don't occur frequently…
- Pierre could create such extra-entries - to add by hand - , so he could save time for him, and room on the option-dialogues…

- In the same painting, a list of all internal commands is desirable as a text file. I proposed such files in several topics here and there, but I got no reply till today :(
