Ways to unassign a category from images

Post by Gwenael Q. »

Hello,

Assigning a category to an image can be done by various ways. Seems to me that unassigning a category is not so easily done...

It is a long time since the last time I used XnViewMP, I must be missing some obvious and quick techniques...

Thank you for listening

Select the images, right click to open context menu
Or
Uncheck the categories in 'Categories' or 'Categories sets' panel

Hello,
Select the images, right click to open context menu
I still didn't find how to unassign category this way...
Uncheck the categories in 'Categories' or 'Categories sets' panel
- 'Categories' : This is the way I used to do but not very handy...

- 'Categories sets' : The quickest way... left-click on the category and it is done ! (discovered this just right now!!)

Thank you for listening

if you select a category, you have 'Remove from category' in context menu
Uncheck the categories in 'Categories' or 'Categories sets' panel
- 'Categories sets' : The quickest way... left-click on the category and it is done ! (discovered this just right now!!)
Yes it's the better way
