Colored rating not working on other computer

Post by Pixelfit »

Hi XnView Team and all in the forum.
Here is my issue. I use coloured rating because it is way more noticeable than rating from 1-5. And I use XnView MP on my two computers, desktop and mobile (Mac OS). But when I place color rating on some files it did not shows when I attach my external disk to the second computer. Any suggestions how to fix this so I can see the rating on both computers? Just to be more specific, this rating I made only on your software XnViewMP, not talking about LR or PS.
Thank you in advance and thank you for your great work with XnView.
Best,
Petar.

Here my settings. I also tried and install on both computers new plain versions of XnView MP with no changes in the settings.

Here what I found. When I use specific rating (colour or rating from 1 to 5) from the menu it appears on other computers. But if I assign new shortcuts for my ratings, they are not visible on other computers, only on the one I have use first time. Is there a chance to fix this? Because I prefer to use colour ratings, which are way more visible than ratings from 1 to 5. But on colour ratings original assigned shortcuts are not very pleasant (Ctrl+Shift+3 for example). Thank you for understanding :)
All the best,
Petar.

If you use 'Rating' it works, and not 'Color label'?

No, it's not working for both if I change shortcuts. With original assigned shortcuts both are working correctly.

Interesting suggestion. I'll try different options, when I got back with my desktop.
Thanks for the support, I'll try and unify both layouts.
Here what I use on the mobile computer: "ABC"

No, I tried only "1" and etc. I managed other option for my workflow, when all ratings is set, just move the files in other subfolder.
Thank you for your support again :)
