Can't manage categories from the Properties dialog

Post by dandv » Wed Jan 11, 2017 2:00 pm

I have an image with XMP data written by the excellent Android photo management app F-Stop.

When I open that image in XnView MP on Linux, then right click, choose Properties and go to the Categories tab, I can't add or remove any of the categories. The UI suggests checkboxes could be checked or unchecked, but nothing happens when I click them.

Hello:

This trips a lot of ppl up, me included.

You have to first select a file in the browser panel. then you can modify the panel. unless the file is locked or something

I don't like it either..

Managing categories in the Properties dialog is an expected and needed functionality. It's a missing feature but should be considered as a bug because XnView doesn't work as expected.

Related topics (there might be many more):
