Hierarchical Keyword import

Post by PSHRutPark » Thu Feb 25, 2010 9:39 pm

I appreciate the inclusion of importing hierarchical keywords in XnView MP. Very useful.

However my hierarchical keywords are separated by "." (fullstop) rather than "|" ":" "/" or "\". The "." separator is used by the IMatch image management programme.

Would it be possible to include "." as one of the separators?

Thanks

PETER

Thanks for the inclusion Pierre.

While the "." option is shown in the Setting menu (the "|" is permanently greyed), it doesn't appear to have any effect on the Category display. That is, categories and sub-categories are not displayed as a branched hierarchy but each listed on a separate line"
as in the earlier beta:

location.aaa
location.bbb
location.bbb.hhh
location.vvv

The problem is if you have these files already in DB, IPTC will not be rereaded. Could you try with a clean DB?

I repeatedly had deleted the db for XnViewMP and no change. In response to your message, deleted it again .... no change.
