DB Infos get lost if file gets renamed through move-dialog

Post by vommie »

Hi

I am using XnView MP 0.61 x64 on Win 7 x64.

When I move files from folder A to folder B, and it comes to file conflicts as a file with the same name is already in folder B, XnViewMP offers the option to "rename" the moving file. If choosen, sadly the database infos like rating and categories get lost - instead of relinked to the new filename.

I think this is not wanted :)

...istm that the catalog info (ratings/colors etc.) are assigned to the file with the old name from folder B instead of the file with the new (renamed) name. Neat!
