MP 0.35 Win: GIF and Clipboard bugs

Post by -g- » Fri May 20, 2011 12:43 am

I was just bitten by this couple of bugs. XnView MP 0.35 on Windows XP.

1. It seems that saving as GIF doesn't work.
  • Use PrnScr key to do a screen capture.
  • Paste into XnView with Ctrl+Shift+V.
  • Select Save as... and choose GIF format.
  • Browse to any folder and save the image.
  • The image won't be saved.
2. When you close XnView it will clear whatever you have on the Clipboard. I guess this is not the expected behavior.

I got these two together. As you can imagine, after realizing that the image wasn't saved I tried pasting it again and it was gone. The Save as... bug might happen with other formats as well.

2.) Problem still occurs.
