How to manage/order Favorites?

Post by lphilpot »

XnView MP 0.97 on Windows 11

Is there a built-in method to manage Favorites after they've been added? I realize I can right-click and rename, delete, etc. but there doesn't appear to be a way to move an entry in the list.

I've tried editing and saving bookmark.ini (with XnView closed) but the changes I make aren't reflected when I restart XnView. It always reverts to how it was before editing and indeed, even after closing XnView again bookmark.ini stays as I edited it (i.e., it doesn't revert to match the GUI).

For example, with XnView closed I edit %APPDDATA%\Roaming\XnViewMP\bookmark.ini to look like this and save it:

Code: Select all

"Downloads"*"C:/Users/XXXXXX/Downloads/"
"images (local)"*"C:/data/images/"
"Our-photos (local)"*"C:/data/images/Our-photos/"
"working (local)"*"C:/data/images/working/"
"images (nas01)"*"Z:/XXXXXX/data/images/"
"Our-photos (nas01)"*"Z:/XXXXXX/data/images/Our-photos/"
"working (nas01)"*"Z:/XXXXXX/data/images/working/"
Note aside from my Downloads folder there are two "matching" sets of three paths, one set on C: and the other set on Z: (grouped C: first then Z:). I then launch XnView and the Favorites pane looks like this:

The same paths but not in the order as in bookmark.ini. They're still in the order they were added, before I edited bookmark.ini.

Thanks.
