XnView MP 0.68 - History from Category Sets

Post by Roumano »

Hi,

In the new version (0.68), we have a very usefull new thing : History on Category Sets

But when i use it to add a hierarchical keywords, it's not automatically apply parent keywords (even if it's set on the settings)

Yes, sure.

Because the category must be the same "fully defined object", regardless from where it comes.

This is critical at searching / filtering + XMP export/import, as well as in other situations.

Let's say that we have the following category tree:

Code: Select all

UNESCO Sites
	Greece
		Delphi
Europe
	Greece
		Cities
			Delphi
Company logos
	Automotive suppliers
		Delphi
Products
	Software
		Embarcadero
			Delphi

In order to successfully export/import the 'right' Delphi in/from an XMP file, the program must export the full path, regardless from where (from Tree, from a Set - system managed or user defined) the category / keyword came from.
