Wrong file names

Post by i2gun » Tue Jun 04, 2019 3:42 am

Doesn't open files with Kazakh names (Cyrillic with additional specific Kazakh letters). See the screenshot.

Please see this recent thread: Warning: 'Error opening the file'

You may need to change a setting in Windows in order to read characters correctly in non-Unicode programs.

Alternatively, XnView MP supports Unicode... :D

Your language isn't shown in the Windows setting referred to in the above linked post?

I only know what I found from a Google search at the time of the above post... :(

But you should be able to use XnView MP without a problem, I think... :D

XNView MP has the same issue, as I remember... :(
But, also I have some jpeg files with the Japanese letters and hyeroglyphs. Does it mean, that I have to add language to my system every time I open the image with the new symbols in its name? :shock: :shock: :shock:

Hi! It does open, but it works slower than XNView and some functions differ from XNView MP, which is not useful. For example, it doesn't copy (Ctrl+C) the selected area of image to an external program like GIMP (copying works only within the program); when opening the file, it loads slower than XNView, etc. I used to work with only XNView, its simple functionality was enough for fast work.

Right, strange, it works with other apps
it loads slower than XNView,
For jpeg, XnView MP is quicker than XnView Classic
etc.

Guess not. Here's xnview opens jpg file:

And here is xnview-mp opens the same file:

You can notice that there are few ms between first and second operation.
