Properties | IPTC or EXIF | Copy to Clipboard - small issues

Post by historyfiend » Mon Nov 24, 2008 3:15 am

When you perform an image Properties | IPTC or EXIF | Copy to Clipboard there are a couple of small issues:

1) The contents of the Caption field is not fully copied so when you paste e.g. in Notepad this field is truncated

2) After a Copy to Clipboard operation, when you flip to another window or application and back to XnView the grid / list of properties under IPTC or EXIF tab is initially not visible. If you mouse over each column header it becomes visible one column header at a time. If you select each row (by clicking or arrowing) it becomes visible one row at a time.

This is true even after you switch tabs in XnView, if you come back to the tab where you last did Copy to Clipboard it will behave in this incorrect way.

3) Field separator for copied data is x0A aka LF even in Windows version of XnView which not all Windows software properly recognizes as a newline, e.g. Notepad.

Thank the update fixed it. In the clip copy you might consider using tabs rather than fixed width so it pastes nicely in to a spreadsheet. That would make more sense given that the info comes from a grid. Love your software Thanks
