0.95: Shift+Del doesn't delete companion files

Post by PeterM » Wed Feb 12, 2020 1:35 pm

XnView: MP 0.95 - 64 bit
OS: Windows 10 64bit

In the settings, I have checked the "Companions files linked for delete action". I have CR2 files with their companions PP3 (from RawTherapee). When I press DEL in the CR2 files, everything works as expected and also PP3 files are deleted and moved to the recycle bin.
But sometimes I want to delete the files permanently, without using the bin. So I press SHIFT+DEL.

Effect: Only CR2 files are deleted. The PP3 files stay untouched.

To reproduce:
1. Have some image files with their companion files. For example CR2+PP3.
2. Select one main image file, e.g. CR2. Press Shift + Del.

Actual behaviour (bug): Only CR2 is permanently deleted, the PP3 is not deleted.

Expected behaviour: Both CR2 and PP3 are permanently deleted.
