MP: "For Copy/Move/Delete use companion file"

Post by YellowLemon » Sun Mar 08, 2015 9:13 am

In XnView (non MP version) under Options > General > File Operations there is a checkbox for "For Copy/Move/Delete use companion file (.xmp/.thm/.jpg)"

I use this to simultaneously delete RAW files associated with JPG files (after adding custom companion files to the Xnview.ini file, such as Companion_00=jpg:nef)

However I cannot find this option in XnViewMP!

Is it possible to delete NEF/CR2/THM/XMP files along with JPG automatically?

Thank you for your advice!

Thank you yes exactly as described in that bug report would be perfect (http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=29532)

That would be a really great feature,
if its possible to modify behavior through gui that would be really helpful but changing ini would allready be VERY helpful.

is there any timeline when that behaviour is added to xnviewMP?

would gladly buy a license even if im using it just for my private picture collection if this is added.

this makes life soo much easier

Thanks a lot

+1 for adding this feature to XnView MP, to allow use of "Move/Copy To" to move the video preview thumbnails (such as generated using Auto Movie Thumbnailer (AMT)) or cover image, such as Movie 1.mp4.jpg and have the corresponding video file automatically moved together with the preview (by defining companion extension relationships of "Companion_00=jpg:" and "Companion_01=:jpg" in XnView.ini), as discussed in List of missing features (compared to XnView Classic).

Is sidecar support for Move/Copy To something that is likely to be added to XnView MP anytime soon? Its the only remaining missing feature from XnView MP that is keeping me from moving to it from XnView Classic.
