XnConvert stealing focus

Post by Sandtyger »

Hi there. I have a simple convert job running in XnConvert 1.76 on Windows 10 64bit.

Actions:
Add Text
Add Watermark

Selected Options:
Output to a specific folder
Format JPG
Keep original date/time attributes
Preserve metadata
Delete Original
Clear input files

When I run the job, XnConvert rapidly and repeatedly steals focus from the foreground program (Chrome, Word, etc). This means that I'm unable to multitask when running a job on XnConvert.

Is there a setting I can tweak to address this or is this a known issue?

Thank you!

Confirmed. When I uncheck the "Delete Original" option, focus is no longer affected.

I'm experiencing this issue, as well, though I'm using XnView MP's Batch Conversion feature. It's not so much XnView itself, but Explorer's Delete window that is produced for every single file deleted. Converting PNG to WEBP is saving lots of storage space, but with every delete operation focus goes to XnView.

I still got it in "XnConvert Version 1.94 - windows x64 (Sep 30 2021) - Libformat version 7.96"

This happend when I check delete the original, keep the same path, it's like windows has an hard time catching up with the deletion, I use 16CPU cores, but an image is worth a thousand word so :
Image

The actions are :
- set DPI to 72
- Resize "fit 2000x2000 keep ratio, reduce only, nearest neightbour"
- Clean all metadata.

Usually it happend where I use the program for more than 500 images. (I usually run it for more than that, like 5k+)

Windows 10? Do you minimize XnConvert or put it in background?

It let it run in background and switch to other app like my browser, but even with a game xn keep steeling the focus, or it's call to windows deletion cause the lost of focus.

As you can see in the video at 50s, i'm on xnconverter when xn start conversion, then it deletes the files and doing so, it make this pop-up windows for deletion that steal the focus, maybe because it delete files one by one, that call for well in my case 16 deletion at a time, windows as not even deleted the first 16 that 16 new ones come... But it happen even if I reduce the number of threads, it just take more time to happen.

settings are still the same.
