Help with XnView Portable

Post by ckit »

I'm making my own XnView Portable (the U3 version is crap) but I need new switches!

- xnview portable.cmd

@echo off
xnview.exe -ini xnv_port.ini
exit

- xnv_port.ini
- xnv_port.bar

I need a "-bm <file>" for Bookmarks (mine will be xnv_pbm.ini)
I need a "-cat <file>" for Bookmarks (mine will be xnv_pcat.ini)

and I'm probably still forgetting other things but I'm half-way there :)

OMFG, XnView removed my local "bookmarks.ini" file and moved it to my USB drive.
Now, I'm pissed right off!

XnView needs to COPY the Bookmarks file NOT MOVE it.

to "Folder for other files"="Custom"

Ok, yes if you change in the Option dialog the location, xnview will move the file. You must change it in xnview.ini
