REQ: Pause button for thumbnail "Add folder"

Post by robc »

A Pause button in the dialog that appears when you choose to add a folder tree to the thumbnail cache would be most welcome when thumbnailing a large number of files/folders, since this feature is obviously disk-intensive and non-restartable (if you cancel it, fine, but then you need to restart from the root folder of the tree you were processing or manually choose folder after folder...).

I would hope that XnView intelligently skip all Thumbnails already created and quickly resume from where it stopped (this would also apply in order to automatically skip already cached thumbnails/folders without having to do manual selections).

This feature is implemented (=works) in Beta 2... :P

There is no 'Pause' button though -> robc, is it ok with you?

I didn't test it, but if the feature works, the "pause" button is not necessary anymore: you simply cancel the operation and restart it another time.
