"Save As" question

Post by sixtydashone »

I have a question regarding the "save as" functionality. This is kind of hard for me to explain but I'll do my best.

Many times I want to edit a pic from "xxx" directory and "save as" to "yyy" directory. Once I've saved the edited pic to "yyy" directory, I'd like to be able to scroll the mouse wheel and have it take me to the next pic in "xxx" directory so I can edit it and save it to "yyy" and so forth.

The issue is that after the "save as" if I scroll the wheel, I am now scrolling through the "yyy" directory. So what happens next is I have to click X at the upper right corner to close the picture and return me to the pic browser, then find my place in "xxx" directory, open and edit the next pic, click "save as", close it to return to the browser again, find my place in the "xxx" directory again, etc.

It makes it a pretty tedious process if I want to make edits to several pics in one directory and save a separate copy of each of them to another directory as I go. I hope that makes sense. I am certain that a previous version of XNView did not do this. Is there a setting somewhere so I can make it to where after editing a pic and "saving as" to another directory, I remain in the original source directory for that pic? That way I could edit, save as, scroll the wheel, edit, save as, scroll the wheel, and so on.

:) Hello !

• I got the issue…
- In the newest versions, the target directory is the one shown in the browser after “Save as…”,
while i.e. in 1.80.3 it was the source directory still, that's right.
…Is there a setting somewhere so I can make it to where after editing a pic and "saving as" to another directory, I remain in the original source directory for that pic?
• I checked the GUI options and the extra INI entries, I didn't find any option to change the current behaviour…
- But I could miss it (assuming that Pierre made it for some special case¦customer…),
I can't swear that we have all INI entries HERE

:mrgreen: Kind regards,
