1.00: Companion files in subfolder

Post by simon »

Hello,

On windows 10, I tried to use "companion file" for simultaneous renaming or deleting. This works fine when the companion file is in the same folder as the image file, but not when the companion file is in a sub-folder. I attempted to specify the sub-folder just before the extension of the companion file in the file list / companion file settings (in various forms such as ..\sub-folder\extension or sub-folder\extension), but this does dot work.

Is there some means to have it works or is it just (currently) impossible to have image files and companion files linked together if they are not directly in the same folder ? (I have this issue because i develop nikon NEF files with a nikon software, which put companion files in a sub-folder named nksc_param)

Thanks
simon
