Batch convert file overwrite confirmation

Postby jww » Thu May 04, 2017 3:02 pm

When you run a batch process and set the output file path to be the same as the original file path and leave the setting for how to handle collisions to "Ask", it will ask you every single file without a way to cancel the process entirely. This is a problem when processing hundreds of files since leaving it as "Ask" is probably accidental so the only choice you have then is to either tediously keep saying yes or go to task manager and kill xnview altogether.

I suggest adding "Yes to all" and "No to all" buttons so it only asks the first time.
