How to add a checkmark tag in image view?

Post by pulancho »

I am using 1.00 on an M1 Mac. I see how to add a checkmark tag to a photo in the browser, but I cannot find how to add a checkmark tag to a photo in the image view mode. In the image view mode is when I can clearly see a photo, zoom in, etc. to determine whether I want to add a checkmark tag as a mark for deletion or something else later.

Hmm, in XnView MP on Windows, keyboard shortcut is Ctrl + T for tagging/untagging. One can see the tagging status in the info ("i" for showing/hiding info). I've no idea whether Ctrl + T also works on an M1 Mac.

BTW: In image view mode I can't find a menu item for tagging/untagging - is there any?

Thank you for that tip. I just now tried it using Cmd + T and that worked. Unfortunately, while in image view I do not see any indication that I have created a tag. When I go back to the browser though I see the tag checkmark.

Good to read that Ctrl + T works on your M1 Mac, too.

With "View > Show information" (or "i" key) you should be able to show/hide information about the current image. By default, the info displays directory and filename and tag status; you can set contents displayed in the info in Tools > Settings | View | Info

To me it looks as if menu items for tagging have been forgotten in image view mode, both in XnView MP and Classic.

Thank you for the additional information.

I have been using an outstanding free program called Faststone on my various Windows PCs for over 15 years:

Unfortunately, it is not available for Macs. :(
