External Editor Parameters

Post by doobs »

This is in reference to Windows 10.

In the Configure Programs selection of the Edit With menu shown are "Name" and "Parameters", where Name is the external application.

I want to set this up to open the file in Capture One, but I need this command line switch prior to the filename to do this "/SetAsCaptureFolder"

I've edited the "Edit With" setting in the ini file, and that has no effect. Is there a way to set a "parameter"?

I can brute force this with a batch file, but that seems rather inelegant.

Thanks!

Answering my own question if this should come up again.

It's in the xnview.ini file:

This works beautifully with the amazingly incalcitrant Capture One.

Now to dive into the rest of the wonderful capability of XnViewMP.

My goal is to eliminate my reliance on LightRoom v6.14. Methinks I'm halfway there!

Did you try double click in "parameter" column, close to Capture One field ?

LOL. I didn't! That works beautifully.

Thanks!
