Update of changed image informations

Post by MichaelP » Mon Aug 24, 2020 9:40 am

Hello!

I assign categories in XnView. It is often necessary to rename images later or move them to a different storage location. I do this usually outside of XnView.

How is the correct procedure to make the images available again for XnView (thumbnail view, category view)? Do I have to know which images have been changed or can I initiate a complete re-import?

I use "Ansicht / Katalog aus Dateien aktualisieren" right?
The progress bar informs me of 245 updates. So many pictures should be in the main directory. How do I trigger the update of all sub-folders too?
Thanks for all help!

But what ist "relocate"? Im using the german Version. In "Einstellungen/Katalog" I have
"Alle löschen", "Miniaturbilder neu erstellen", "Optimieren" and "Ordner hinzufügen".
"Optimieren (Katalogwartung)" has "Datenbank optimieren", "Daten von leeren Verzeichnissen löschen", "Miniaturbilder löschen", "Daten von Dateien löschen" and then "Daten von verwaisen Verzeichnissen löschen", "Daten von verwaisten Dateien löschen".
There is no "relocate".
