Request: 'Common Images formats strictly'

Post by budz45 »

hi again,

In Xnview MP I disable some things in the 'file lists' option and restart the program and still XnView MP is recognizing such files extensions like exe, pdn, m4a I don't know what to do, I'm losing my head 8) http://i44.tinypic.com/oksw1s.png http://i41.tinypic.com/rwq4jp.png

In XnView win, there is a button in Tools>Options>Integration that simply auto-selects common formats to associate and like that I would like to see the same in 'File Lists' for when I view images in the 'Viewer' window. So a setting like 'Common Images formats strictly'

...I only use XnView to view image formats and not other formats (yet)

Me too.

I only use XnviewMP to view images, not documents, videos, ...

I also want an option to select only image formats to view/associate.

Hello,
And by selecting View\Filter by \ Images
or
by selecting View\Filter by \ Custom, and by configuring for example in Options\File List :
...
Video: = not Visible - open in = none
All Others files: = not Visible - open in = (none or Associated Progam)
...
That does not work ?
If not, it's probably a MP0.26-1 windows bug ? (FI: I use the MP Linux 0.26 version)

I think many users would like a button like this;
Image

So clear and comprehensive and would simply auto-select/deselect everything in the File List and make sure that XnView only recognizes image files when viewing next/prev file in the viewer :D

Yes, thanks for agreeing. It would make it so easy for majaroity of users who enjoy XnView for image viewing only.

So the 'Common Images formats strictly' should be for ALL image formats extensions - icon extensions (.ico and .icns) included too.

Perhaps another, separate filter 'File list' can be made for the Viewer mode Settings>View. A more simplified easier one than the Browser's file list editor in settings. I think.

It's not nice doing a 'next/prev file' in Viewer mode, in a folder full of mixed content of files only for the Viewer to try to display my non-picture content. Like some other people, I don't use XnView's viewer for .exe or .pdf files so a method to control this would be good.
