Name of INI file in Info->About

Post by JohnFredC »

I use XnView in a variety of different ways and employ several different xnview.ini files. In addition, I frequently have several different instances of XnView open, sometimes each with a different INI.

Please report the xnview.ini file that is used by the current XnView instance. The Info->About dialog would be a good place for that.

Thanks for such a great tool.

Thanks, Pierre :D

Do you think it's possible to make the file open in a text editor by clicking on it?

On second thought, this doesn't seem to be not such a brilliant idea. :|

Less experienced users may expect that editing xnview.ini will take immediate effect.
AFAIK, XnView would not only have to constantly monitor the file for changes by other programs, but also dynamically re-INI-tiate the settings w/o restart.

Yes, but it is truncated when displaying long paths.
