XnView MP 0.96.2 OS X layout preferences [Solved]

Post by naugahyde » Sun May 10, 2020 5:06 am

Hi,

Over the past few weeks I have brick by brick seriously scrambled the layout preferences for XnView MP for OS X.

I have searched online and in the program's help docs but unfortunately there seems to be no parallel to the Windows xview.ini file on OS X.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled many times and nothing has changed.

The preferences are too complicated for my limited brain power and time and I have made zero progress in restoring them to the default.

The layout is so bad that it's almost not worth running the application, even though it is so superior to any other free image viewer out there.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Ciao

Thanks Pierre. I didn't realize that OS X search was not "seeing" that folder with all the settings files in it. Nothing came up when I searched for xnview.ini.

I will try deleting these (after backing them up, just in case) and resinstalling.

See attached jpg for my current XnView MP layout.

Merci

After deleting the hidden .xnviewmp folder in my user folder and re-installing, I was able to start over with the default layout.

Thanks again Pierre
