Re: File->Open file list, no thumbnails

It happens with all files if file has more than one field.

If I try with only filenames then it works But any other fields like comment, rating etc. it does not work as it treats the whole line as filename.

Also, even though it works with only filename, it hangs if file has long list of images e.g. over 1000 images or so.

One feature suggestion could be while user is opening a list of file, show the rows in left hand window (where you show folders). Then user can scroll thru the list inside XnView.

This file works - it has only filenames no other field

This file does not work - it has other fields. I have tried with , | or tab as delimiter
In this case, XnView considers the entire line as filename

That is for rating and connected comment.

As I said even if I create the list inside Xnview it still can't open. Tried with different delimiters.

Can you please post a file format for list which works?

Like

Filename, rating, comment

The create file list command can export list with comment, rating etc.

I thought same file list could be opened as input too.

Now I understand that it is not the case.

Suggestion

Post by Gwenael Q. » Sun Apr 12, 2020 6:03 pm

XnviewMP 0.96


"Create > File listing..." command is very handy and useful. But it is at least very surprising that it still generate files that can not be handled correctly with the "File > Open file list" without manual editing. At the least, a warning should have been be displayed somewhere so the user be aware of that situation.

However, I think the problem could be easily solved with the following suggestion :

Add 2 buttons : "Custom" and "For Xnview(MP)" at the top of the "Create file list" dialobg box... The "Custom" mode would be like it is now and the "For Xnview(MP)" mode would desactivate all the possible settings that would not be understood by the "File > Open file list" command.

Thank you for listening.

Re: File->Open file list, no thumbnails

Post by michel038 » Tue Apr 14, 2020 11:35 am

I'm using file lists to dump (export) metadata , and then with Excel or Calc I can find anything I could search
I also use it to generate html pieces of code, or tables containing dates, places, and a lot of other inforamtions.
Sometimes, i need a simple file list , and I must delete all fields, and select {Directory}{Filename with ext}

Could anyone guess that "{Directory}{Filename with ext} " is the only way that permits to open the list ?

I think this is a good idea :
Add 2 buttons : "Custom" and "For Xnview(MP)" at the top of the "Create file list" dialobg box... The "Custom" mode would be like it is now and the "For Xnview(MP)" mode ...
... will creates a File list without any extra settings

Yes, if a user can understand that

" Save for Xnview will not use your settings, but will choose his own ones , and won't tell you what they are"

" Enregistrer pour Xnview n'utilisera pas vos paramètres, mais choisira ses propres paramètres, et ne vous dira pas lesquels" :D

I can't see any new options in this tool ... :shock:


There is a tip : use Text as output format
Add double quotes in the first field "{Directory}{Filename With Ext}"
You can now add more values, and xnViewMp will be able to read the file list ...
