Save session - doesn't do anything

Postby David4321 » Tue Jan 05, 2016 6:48 am

When I close xnview, I'm prompted if I want to save session. I've always wanted to be able to save tab groups, but the function never seems to do anything. At least I don't know how to find and reopen any saved sessions. What is this feature supposed to do, and how is it used? If it's supposed to save tab group, how do I access it?

I've got xnview MP installed on Ubuntu. Thanks.

by default, the session is restored. when you start, you have only the browser?

Correct. I've used xnview for years, on windows and linux, and it's never reopened my tabs, with or without attempted save. I normally don't open application directly, almost always just by clicking image file, it's my default viewer.

Doesn't work as expected for me. Version 0.79. Platform — Windows.

Yes, it does ask me if I want to save the session or no.
Yes, it does restore the session next time when I launch the application from icon, exe.
No, it does not restore the session when I launch the application from another image.

The problem is, when I see that some session will be saved, I expect that it could be restored in any case.
Otherwise I need to be informed about exceptions, because it is confused.

This works for me now, after resetting prompts, when opened from icon and not from a file. Is the intention of the feature to store one session as work in progress, to be reopened in this way? (like reopening browser tabs from last session) Would it have the capability to save sessions more like bookmarked tab groups, which could be selected and opened later? Thanks.
