Companion File Handing in MP?

Post by andrewj » Sat Apr 29, 2017 11:30 am

Hi,
Could someone please confirm whether MP has the ability to set up equivalent companion file handing to XnView Classic and if so how to access it. In Classic, there's a simple .INI section which implements exactly what I need, for example to move XMP and Canon/Panasonic/Sony Raw files with the JPG, I just set:

Code: Select all

[File]
Companion_00=cr2:jpg
Companion_01=cr2:cr2.bib
Companion_02=crw:jpg
Companion_03=crw:crw.bib
Companion_04=cr2:xmp
Companion_05=cr2:dng
Companion_06=cr2:cr2.xmp
Companion_07=rw2:xmp
Companion_08=rw2:jpg
Companion_09=rw2:rw2.xmp
Companion_10=arw:xmp
Companion_11=arw:jpg
Companion_12=arw:arw.xmp
ConfirmFileDelete=1
CopyCompanionFile=1
However, this doesn't seem to work in the XnViewMP .INI file.

What's the status of this, please?
Thanks
Andrew

Any plans for this soon? It's the single most annoying thing about MP.
I can't do any file deletion with MP. LR is the only thing that works and you can't open 2 catalogs.

Just to confirm, this isn't done right?
