Browser - favourites - fix favShowFiles flag

Post by user0 »

XnViewMP 1.5.0 64bit
Windows11 (22H2), display resolution 3840x2160, win scaling 150%


Browser - favourites
its possible to show subfolders via favShowFiles=true flag in xnview.ini
however, it is inconvenient and naming is confusing


Suggestion A
fix flag name, either:
- rename it to favShowSubfolders OR
- add new favShowSubfolders flag and ingnore old one


Suggestion B
add GUI settings to change this flag, via
  • new group in Settings OR
  • (preferable) new item in context menu on empty space
    Image

Suggestion C
add "Sort by name" to the same context menu (same as in XnView Classic)
