Sidecars to separate folder.

Post by AdorableWolf »

To be fair. I did abandon XnView for some time and gave it another try today. I understand now how sidecars works on gifs and png. I move/edit/delete file, the sidecard follows -> neat.

All I wonder is this: Since I see that it is just fine to put sidecart to a different folder -> it still keeps the categories intact. Is it possible to put those in a separate folder AND still keep the functionality of rename/delete when main file is gone? -> If I did it now like this, it would lead to broken links if I ever remove main pictures leaving useless xmp sidecarts to those files.
