1.0: Browser bugs: Tooltips, Details view

Post by ilcane87 »

Hello, first of all I'm running XnView MP Windows Version 1.0 64bits (Apr 28 2022), Libformat version 7.110, on Windows 10 Pro x64.
  • Tooltips problem

    I set up custom browser tooltips like this:
    <b>{Filename With Ext}</b><br>{Categories}<br>{Directory}<br>Creation date: {Creation Date}<br>Modified date: {Modified Date}<br>{Size KB} Kib
    Untitled.png
    The custom fields show correctly for a minority of files:
    Untitled2.png
    But most files display some kind of default tooltip instead:
    Untitled3.png
    I've only tested this on mp3 files so far.
  • Details view problem

    The 'Categories' field is not populated with any of the assigned Categories:
    Untitled4.png
    This as well I've only tested on mp3 files so far.
This is my first post here so I'll take the opportunity to thank everyone involved for this awesome piece of software. :wink:

  • Tooltips problem
Could you send me one sample file for each?
  • Details view problem

This 'Category' field is taken from IPTC

While looking for files to send you, I realized something: only the files downloaded from a certain user seem to have a working tooltip for some reason.
So I made a copy of a working file and checked the media details:

Then I altered a single field (added a character to the title), and applied the changes. After checking again, the media details were entirely gone, and the tooltips don't work anymore:

The details being gone is probably unrelated to XNView, it happens even when working from windows explorer with the program closed, although I noticed that sometimes I'm unable to edit the details when XNView is opened.
Don't know why it's affecting tooltips though, there are other mp3 files with populated details that still show the wrong tooltips, but those can be edited without them all disappearing later.

Here's two samples, the original file that gets correct tooltips, and the copy without media details that gets the wrong tooltips:

Oh, then I guess I'll post a suggestion to add the actual categories to the details view, that would come in handy when you don't need to use the Thumbnails view, such as with music files.
