[Solved] Image resize/Canvas resize: Missing presets

Post by deus-ex » Fri Feb 01, 2019 7:56 pm

The Image resize (Shift+S) and Canvas resize (Shift+C) dialogs of v0.93 do not offer any presets to chose from, as opposed to v0.92 and earlier versions.

do you have used .zip or .exe package? DO you have the ResizePreset.xt file in XnView folder?

Actually I checked both the ZIP file and the installer. First I used the installer, extracting its content with innounp.exe in order to manually update my existing installation of XnViewMP, overwriting old files with new files from the installer. During that process I noticed that there are a few files missing in the installer, so I went to download the ZIP archive and extracted its content and made a comparison of the ZIP archive and installer contents. I reported the results here: viewtopic.php?f=82&t=38465#p154334

For further verification of the missing presets issue I deleted my local xnview.ini (I choose the strategy to save XnVieMP's settings to an ini file located in the XnViewMP installation folder) and restarted XnViewMP, but also with a fresh xnview.ini the presets do not show up.

Has there something changed with v0.93 regarding the storage of the preset settings? I can try to do a reinstall of XnViewMP using the installer (without manual interference) to see whether this fixes the issue.

EDIT: corrected the description of my update process.

Do you have any suggestions how I should proceed or what to try?
It seems that this file is missing from package, i've updated them. Please download it again?

Hello Pierre,

ah, so it initially was missing from the distribution, therefor I could not notice it of course. I just had re-downloaded both the ZIP archive and the installer a couple minutes ago. Copying the file ResizePresets.txt into my XnVieMP installation folder fixes the issue, now the presets are available.

Thank you.
