0.xx - 0.98: rating overwrites categories in .xmp companion file

Post by Flyk3 »

XnView: MP 0.98.0 - 64-bit (but was already before)
OS: Windows 10 - 64-bit

Setting color label or rating will overwrite all saved categories in the .xmp companion file. But these categories are still saved in XnView MP, so the error is only noticeable when you create a new database or move the files outside of XnView MP and import it again.

To reproduce:
1. Set following:

2. Set some categories to a file and let XnView MP save the categories into the .xmp companion file.
3. Deselect and select the file.
4. Rate the file and XnView MP will overwrite the categories in the .xmp companion file.
