:) Hello !

• The most INI settings you quote here are already listed by chronological order and described HERE
… and THERE for the colours per file type…

• It's still useful to track the obsolete¦missing ones though, and you may use our descriptions
(about the spelling ;) ).

Hi ckv :D

When you posted those hidden settings bugs I had an inkling that something was afoot.

Your reference reminds me of Xyzzy's very clearly and concisely laid-out Options' descriptions for 1.82.

Good job!

Added in v1.95:

Code: Select all

[Compare]
BackColor=
Printjobs with file-name instead ... (2. version)

Code: Select all

[Print]
JobPerPage=
Compare Panel: Change background colors?

Great, thanks. Though I'm not sure if I add ShowAgain to the list. It's kind of hard to use manually, but I still plan to use these flags in my other project. ;)


Thanks. :) I will add these to the list.

Oh, I won't use the ones beyond 'fingers + toes'. I just remove line, and let them all be reset. Good luck with project. :)

Not only in multipage files. It also works for "batch-plotting" (selecting some single-page file and start the plot command).

Hi ckv, nice idea :)

Please add a short note where to change this stuff, here a suggestion:
The changes have to be performed in a text editor in file xnview.ini whose location is defined in Options -> System integration. The INI-file contains headings, e.g. "[Browser]", which correspond to the titles below, and you have to place the entries into the right part of the INI file.

You write "See also ColorLabel-# setting", in my XnView.ini there's "ColorsLabels0" - spelling issue or different things?

In the XnView Wiki, you can improve the user guide / documentation / F1-help for XnView (classic/Windows) and for XnViewMP

Another ShowAgain value:
65536 Dialog asking to use tagged or selected files.
(ex. <ctrl + alt + c> in thumbnails view copying to default directory)

I added a short instructions on the beginning of the list.

I guess "ColorsLabels0" completely different thing. I don't have that setting in any of my ini files. Maybe it's an obsolete setting from some older version.

I added description for Companion_00, but I didn't see anything about CopyNameOld on that topic.

I updated the list. RightButtonFlag seems to be obsolete setting and I removed InfoO-# as it's not really UI-less.

Thank you guys. :) I do really appreciate all the suggestions you made and I do realize that asking for suggestions is kind of pointless if you don't update when you get them, so I will try to update the list more often from now on.
