B1: Yes all/no all feature doesn't work

Post by Drahken »

The new feature " * Yes all/No all to save changes (view mode) " doesn't work. I opened several different images in viewer mode (I always use viewer mode), made changes to them, then closed the prog without saving. I still got individual yes/no dialogs for each image, with no option to apply my decision to all the other images.
Oh the feuhrer, oh the feuhrer, oh the feuhrer's nipples bonk!

Umm.... Click on what "no all"??? The whole problem is that there isn't any "no all" to click on. Not that I can find anyway. Can you post a screenshot of where the "no all" option is supposed to appear?

Confirmed. The normal message box with "Yes", "No", "Cancel" is shown, nothing else.

@Pierre: Could you please explain which steps we have to take to see the new message box with "Yes, all", "No, all"?

I open a picture in view mode, make a area clear for example, and click on 'Next file'. Here i have the dialog with yes/no/Cancel/Yes all/No all!!!
So do you want this dialog when you close the window too?

Ok.. going to the next file after making a change does make the yes all/no all appear. However, this is not where/when/how I expected it to work (nor, IMO, is this way very useful. Since you usually don't know what changes you will make while viewing the next image/s, you can rarely decide ahead of time whether to save all or save none.) When you close xnview while having multiple images open is when it makes the most sense to have it appear.
Example 1: You scan in something (setting it to scan into xnview, not as a file), you don't like how it came out, you scan it again, still don't like it. After a few tries you get what you want, but now you're left with half a dozen unwanted images. Closing xnview and clicking the "no to all" option would be much easier than clicking "no" a half dozen times.
Example 2: You see some images on a website, but they are dark or small orhave some other problem that makes them difficult to see properly in your browser. You copy them and paste them into xnview to enhance them/see them better (but you don't want to keep them permanently). Now you're done and close xnview, clicking "no to all" once would be much easier than clicking "no" a dozen times.
Example 3: Similar to Example 2, but with local files. You open up several local files in tabs, make adjustments to them (to view them better, or just experimenting, or whatever) but don't want to save the changes. (Most common case would probably be where you have some files that are darker than most. Setting xnview's gamma adjustment for them, just to set it back for others wouldn't be worth the effort, yet you might not want to change the gamma in the original files, nor have duplicate images floating around.) Again, closing xnview and just getting a single "no to all" prompt would be much more convenient than a dozen "no" ones.
Example 4: You take several screenshots, use the export function so as to get the best quality/filesize when saving them, but now xnview still thinks they haven't been saved and prompts you to save them when you try to close the program.

Ok, i'll add it, but 'Yes all' is not dangerous in this case??

There's a little risk, but "no all" will get used much more than "yes all". When people want to save changes they've made, they usually do it as they go (ie, saving one image before working on the next). When they do choose "yes all", it's usually in a case where they have a bunch of screenshots taken while playing a game, or some similar situation wherein all the images are part of the same thing (...and in such cases, they rarely have any images open which are not part of the set).
