[Solved]RC3: bookmark.ini not used in Xnview directory.

Post by marsh » Sat May 28, 2005 5:47 pm

Xnview does not use bookmark.ini if it is placed in program directory and it is the only bookmark.ini which exists on computer. Xnview.ini in program directory is used, but bookmark.ini is not used on a clean install. I think this is a problem, but I may have misunderstood related thread.

:) Hello !
- Here, it's located like :

Code: Select all

c:\WINDOWS\Application Data\XnView\bookmark.ini 
under Win98 SE.

- I think it's inconsistent, I don't see any logical reason to have it there…
IMHO, it could be placed in the XnView-directory as well…

It should need only that this location be stated in the EXE-code, I guess.
{ Aside : and what about the hotkeys that you can set, saved in that file, but which do NOT work? }

:mrgreen: Kind regards,
Claude

[REQ] About bookmarks still…

- Thinking to that file <bookmark.ini>, why not to build it as a user's menu, instead an INI ? In the same way we have such a "Start" (User's) menu in Total Commander ? It could be named “Bookmark.mnu” and placed in the Language sub-directory. It could be something like :

Code: Select all

POPUP "&Bookmarks"
MENUITEM "Prox&y Aide-Fr"*"C:\Program Files\AnalogX\Proxy\Aide-Fr\",$x
MENUITEM "Icô&nes32-24b"*"C:\icones\32-24b\",$x+1
MENUITEM "Icônes &48x48"*"C:\icones\48x48\",$x+2
MENUITEM "&BB-code"*"C:\helios\BMP21\BB-code\",$x+3
MENUITEM "Images"*"C:\Images\",$x+4
MENUITEM "&EXEMPLES CDR"*"C:\COREL30\DRAW\EXEMPLES\",$x+5
END_POPUP
;$x is the first internal command number (as hexa) of a reserved group, i.e. 256 entries...
Hence, the hotkeys will work, finally !
- Indeed, the syntax can be false, because I can't compare with the TC's "Start Menu" (not reachable), but I guess it's possible and better.
What do you think :?:

bookmark.ini is always saved in Document Settings, because i think it's a better location for files created by XnView.
xnview.ini is a special file.
