Missing Tools?

Post by wolfnowl »

Hi There:

Just downloaded XNView MP 1.4.3 64-bit for Windows. Reading through the wiki info and I'm missing things that apparently are supposed to be there.

For example: https://www.xnview.com/wiki/index.php?t ... rtcut_Keys
"Many of XnView's shortcut keys are customizable, meaning that they can be changed by the user. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to find the menu or option where the change can be made. The location of the option is noted in the following sections, where possible. Many of the keyboard/mouse shortcut keys are set in Tools > Options > General > Keyboard/Mouse."

I've seen other references to Tools/Options as well. I don't have a Tools/Options. I have Tools/Settings but the keyboard shortcuts for example aren't in there.

Another example:
"In XnView Browser, select an image. Then select menu "Tools >> Tag face". If your image file hasn't got already XMP MWG metadata, XnView will start and recognize areas with faces."

I don't have a Tools/ Tag Face either. There is an option to add Face Tag to the toolbar, but it's grayed out and can't be used.

Colour me confused.

Mike.

You are in the Classic version wiki, it's Tools>Settings
Another example:
"In XnView Browser, select an image. Then select menu "Tools >> Tag face". If your image file hasn't got already XMP MWG metadata, XnView will start and recognize areas with faces."

You need to install the plugin

Pierre: Thanks for letting me know. There's no access to Keyboard Shortcuts in Tools/Settings, or anywhere else that I can find. Is it somewhere else?
