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.
