how to replace/overwrite file?

Post by sikorumbe » Wed Apr 24, 2019 4:51 am

Hi Guys,
was just wondering if there is "replace/overwrite" file dialog when xnview detecting the same file ?
Rather than just create another one and add "copy" into the file name?

Thank you.

Hi
I'm Sorry how to get the replace dialog to appear again?

Currently, it seems xnview MP automatically rename the file with "copy"

Thank you.

I have the same Problem.
When i copy Files and past form Folder 1 to folder 2 to find the add files in folder 2 (merge it) it only copy the files.
Normal in Finder or Explorer it ask me would like to replace the file?

In XnView MP Version 0.93.1 it only make a copy with the extension name "... - Copy.JPG"
In the Settings "General -> File Operations" i have disable "add copy for duplicates", but it always copy the File / Pictures.
For example form "DSC04812.JPG" to the name "DSC04812 - Copy.JPG"

Please fix it.

Many thanks

Dear Christian

when you drag&drop or Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V of a file in same folder, 'copy - ' will be added, no replace dialog is shown...

Hi,
So is there a way to replace existing file (without having adding _copy.jpg) ?

Kindly guide me.

Thank you.
