sharing Colour Labels

Post by tomasburancgi »

Hello, I want to share my Colour Labels with other computers. We share a disc where is located Folder for Catalog (.db), Thumbnails Database and Other files. In other words, we share the Catalog Location:

When I change Categories (for example add a new category) other computers will see the changes.

Something different happens when I change Colour Label. Only I can see new names of labels. When I set a Colour Label to the file, others see that there is a Label of the specific color, but they don't see the correct name of the label.

So the only ways are:

1. import my .ini to the other computers
2. install xnview to the shared location
3. one by one rename labels on all computers

Am I right?
