Folders with subfolders in browser mode

Post by Bronimus »

Hello,
If I select in browser mode a folder that includes also subfolders the images of the subfolders are automatically included in the browser view. How to get only the selected folder without the images in the subfolders? The option “Show files in subfolder” is deactivated.

When you go in a folder, you have files of subfolders too???

Thank you for your problem report, Bronimus. I cannot reproduce your problem. Which version of XnView MP do you use? Could you perhaps take a screen cast / screen video and post it here?

okay,werds versuchen: es gibt ein Verzeichnis "200609 Dresden" mit 206 Bildern und ein Unterverzeichnis "Zusätzliches" mit 28 Bilder (siehe Clipboard 1.jpg). Klickt man jetzt auf das Verzeichnis "Zusätzliches" so werden korrekt die 28 Bilder angezeigt. Jetzt auf das übergeordnete Verzeichnis "200906 Dresden" geklickt erscheinen zunächst die gespeicherten 206 Bilder (siehe Clipboard 2.jpg), dann erscheint in der Statuszeile ein fortlaufender grüner Balken, und schließlich werden die Bilder aus dem Verzeichnis "Zusätzliches" VOR den Bildern des übergeordneten Verzeichnisses "200609 Dresden" eingereiht und angezeigt (siehe Clipboard 3.jpg). Die Anzahl der Bilder bleibt jedoch unverändert bei 206.

In your screenshot "Clipboard 3.jpg", we don't see images of ""Zusätzliches" in "200609 Dresden" folder?

Thank you, Bronimus, for your screenshots. I continue in English (and not in German) so that many people are able to read this and benefit.

I'm not quite sure but to me it looks as if you have a special sorting (or something like that) which forces to rearrange thumbnails after loading. Are you sure that files from the subfolder "Zusätzliches" are shown? What is your sort order? Could you perhaps provide your XnView configuration (file: "xnview.ini")?

Sorry for the mess :-(
Clipboard 1.jpg is the upper part of the subfolder "Zusätzliches"
Now I add Clipboard 4.jpg which is the lower part of the subfolder and is to be seen on clipboard 3.jpg
I also add XnView.ini as a zipped file

Hello,
Meanwhile: your hint concerning XnView.ini helped :D I deleted XnView.ini and opened XnViewMP again. After configuring the options now everything looks correct. It is a little bit strange :? but "what the hey!"

Good to read that resetting the XnView configuration helped, Bronimus. XnView settings are supposed to be compatible between version but in few cases these aren't. Also, XnView offers heaps of settings and flexibility in configuration - this offers potential for misconfiguration.
