0.99.7 M1: XnView Opens Preview

Post by xnb »

I am trying to use XnView MP version 0.99.7 and macOS 12.3.1 on an M1 Air along with.HIF (HEIF) files from my Sony a7 IV. Whenever I tried view the .HIF files, it opens Preview. Everything is installed and set up with defaults. Am I missing something? Is there anything I could check?

Open up XnViewMP, then browse to the images. Ten either 2x click or highlight and press enter.

In browser do you have the preview? Try 'View>Rebuild thumbnails'?

No, they have never displayed the thumb in the browser. Doing the rebuild doesn't change either.

Attached is what it looks like. The raw files I did blackout since those do display and don't want even the thumbs on the Internet.

I had tried that as well before and it didn't help. But just tried it again, and with the rebuild, and same issue.
