No drag and drop again

Post by toyotadesigner » Sat Jan 18, 2020 7:26 am

After installing the new version, everything seemed to work.

But now the old bug returned (as posted here: viewtopic.php?f=62&t=39886)

When I start XnView after a reboot, everything is ok. But as soon as I start another app to drag files onto it, the bug re-appears and I can not drag the selected files into the application anymore. Same bug when I insert a USB stick to drag files into it.

Closing and re-starting XnView doesn't help.

macOS Catalina Version 10.15.2 (19C57)

Installed the new version, same bug again.
Deleted ~/Library/Preferences/com.xnview.XnView.plist and — believe it or not, now it works flawlessly.
I'll keep on testing it today with dragging files to a USB stick and to other apps like Hugin or RPP (Raw Photo Processor) and give a feedback.

Nope. After a restart the drag and drop refuses to work. Same problem again.

This is strange:
Yesterday I could not drag and drop files (one, two or more) from XnView MP onto an open application (RAW converter).

Last night I shut down the Mac, and today I can drag and drop any number of files to a USB Stick or Hugin app or RPP app...

I still have to figure out when the drag and drop function will stop, maybe it's caused by a program?

Today I found there is a new com.xnview.XnView.plist in the -> Library -> Preferences folder from yesterday.

I will keep you updated!
