Import and sort: Files import finished!

Post by m.Th. »

When we use „Import and sort” the dialog at the end is like this:
XnView Import and sort.jpg
Please change it to:

The import of the files ended. Do you want to close the „Import and Sort” dialog?

{Yes} {No}

If the user chooses „Yes” then also the „Import and Sort” dialog will close.

„No” will keep the current behavior.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Thank you for your suggestion, m.Th. - very cool that you're still around. 8) Personally, I find it strange if dialogs don't close once action is finished. This applies for batch conversion and for "Import and sort" dialog. In case of batch conversion it can be helpful because after conversion user can read the status and see what happened. In case of the "Import and sort" dialog I see little advantage in keeping the dialog open.

From my point of view a checkbox [x] "Close when finished" on the "Import and Sort" dialog might be a good solution to allow both for single import and multi import. When pressing "OK" on the message box the dialog is either kept open or closed depending on this new checkbox.

Hyia, Helmut! :-)

Had a lot of work, lately - but, yes, we use XnView MP extensively.

Good ideea, - and, normally, easier to implement.

Indepentently we found this suggestion, so this must be a really good suggestion. :) All it needs is a programmer to implement it. ;)
