where to find EXCLUDE filter in XnViewMP

Post by hugofant »

Hello,
i'm using XnViewMP in Ubuntu 9.10.
As i'm working with a Canon Eos 300D and RAW, i've .CRW and .THM files in my picture directories.
I know a possibility to exclude files (want to do this with the THM files) in "older" versions of XnView in the "file list settings", but can't find this in the new MP-Version.
Is it gone or am i blind?
Would be nice, if somebody could help me.
Thanks in advance

you are blind. :P

It's at the same place - Browser > File list > Custom. You just need to scroll down a bit, or enlarge the window, then click the field with extensions (htm html...).

hmmm, so i seem to be not really blind, but dumb.....i've already found the custom field, but there is no "exclude field"....so how to exclude the .thm files???
i'd like to see all image files excluding the .thm files (which seem to be the jpeg previews of the .crw files).

It works the same way as in XnView Windows version, just add "thm" extension to the custom field and unmark the checkboxes - where you don't want to see that extension (visible / show as thumbnail / show in preview).
