Save/export file - keep modified date [SOLVED]

Post by Sprintdriver » Tue Mar 06, 2018 10:47 pm

Hi.

Use XnView MP on Linux Lite. Program version 0.88. XnView used mostly to resize photograph taken from camera. But when saving the file, the file modified date is lost.

Before I started using Linux on daily basis I preffered Irfanview because it had the ability to keep image file date. Having file date is important as I need to search for files later, based on last changed time stamp.

I suggest adding an option in settings "keep file date".


Thanks

Current workaround: use the command touch in terminal to copy file modified date from one file to another. Simple, but takes time to do.
