No thumbnail for files larger than (bug?)

Post by ckv »

This isn't actually bug, but more like unexpected behave.

Files what are bigger than the limit in 'No thumbnail for files larger than' option don't have thumbnail at all. What I mean is that even if file is bigger than the limit, it should have a thumbnail, not of the picture, but the filetype icon.

I don't understand, if the thumbnail is not created, you have the icon of filetype...

I just tried it: once creation of thumbnails is finished, XnView filter out the files smaller than the value selected -> their icon filetype is not shown in Thumbnail view.

Oh i understand, you shouldn't have "all files" in option/browser/file list?
Yes this is filtered because i don't know if it's a picture or not!

Think your first screenshot is not correct, currently it shows thumbnails for all images. If your screenshot is correct, then the problem might be your cache. Try removing entries for this folder from cache.

On my XP box this works o.k.: For files exceeding the file size the associated icon are shown (as expected).

Definetily too late. I have to add some more forum rules, e.g. "Posting only between 6 a.m. and midnight" ;-)

Check Pierre's post. Are you having "all files" checked?

Wouldn't it be possible:
- to use extension when 'Recognize only be extension' is set on
- to scan header (only) to detect the format if 'Recognize only be extension' is set off
...before filtering them out?

This could also be done on the fly to show/hide files without having to make a 2 pass display (some people thought this was actually a bug :mrgreen:)

I do it already, but there so many possible extension. .dat can be a picture :-)

It's not possible, first i display the file list, and then i check every files... So you have always 2 pass.
