No automatic update of fresh saved images at the thumbnails

Post by Micha » Sat Sep 28, 2019 7:03 am

Hi,

it was never a problem at XnView Classic but at MP the files of the directory are not automatic refreshed always. For example if I save images per V-Ray or AI Gigapixel than this new images are not shown at the current directory. I need to switch to an other directory and back to get an updated view of all thumbnails. Images saved from Photoshop are shown.

Best-
Micha

Photoshop works, but not saved images from V-Ray.

As workaround could it be possible to get F5 working for forcing a directory upadte?

I found an issue like this and it looks like it can be repeated without additional tools. I drag&drop an image from one XnView MP task to an other. The image isn't read and the thumbnail not shown like at the source folder.

At beta 3 the copy from one MP task to an other works, also if I save from photoshop.

But if I save renderings from V-Ray, than V-Ray for example saves four images alpha/denoise/material_ID/effects. But the automatic saved "effects" image isn't shown, only the three other images. After jumping to an other directory and back the missing image is shown too. Interesting, it was the first saved image of the series which wasn't shown.

I still have the problem, also if I use other software for saving images to the current directory. It could be really useful to update the view per F5. ;)

I'm not sure it's the same issue. Here XnView shows the thumbnail images of a folder and If I save images to this folder per software like V-Ray than only a few or no new thumbnails of the fresh files are added.

Forcing an update per F5 could be a good workaround. At the moment I need to jump to an other directory and back to get all thumbnails shown.
