Purge 'Most recently used files&dirs' on exit

Post by Dreamer » Tue Feb 03, 2009 5:48 pm

Another important option from XnView Windows: "Purge 'Most recently used files & directories' on exit". Privacy is very important for some users, especially if more users are using the same computer.

Another similar option: "Show 'Most recently used files' in File menu".

Using some version, I thought it was useful to clear the filenames, not the folder history. Because I never erased folders (and wanted to return to them in small toolbar history), but images were often erased (so pointless to have a history of these anywhere).

Then 2 options, but it should be possible to remove all history entries too.

In 0.85b1 the option was added, but some path(s?) are still not removed, e.g.:

PathBrowser=

It's not so important for me now, but since we have the option "Purge 'Recent files and folders' on exit", it should purge also folders.

Thank you for checking, Dreamer. This is a bug which should be fixed.

I can confirm that PathBrowser is not reset when using [x] Purge "Recent files and fodler" on exit in Settings: Interface | Interface.

:arrow: Reproduced

Another path is not removed, probably created when converting an image. :bug:

InputPathname=

Re-opened, this path is not removed in beta 2, automatically on exit or manually using "purge now" button. Batch convert, output, folder, last used path.

Code: Select all

[Convert]
