REQ: More Compare Dialog Requests

Post by JohnFredC » Wed Jun 08, 2005 11:31 am

Sorry for so many posts, but I just discovered the Compare Dialog and am very pleased with its potential.

A couple of more requests:

- It would be great to have a Compare button on the browser tool bar. I discovered Compare entirely by accident.

- The current compare feature is apparently a modal dialog. Could we have it in a tab instead? Please?

Thanks for considering these requests.

XNView 1.8 is really just a stupendous effort. Almost like an entirely different software. The earlier versions were very very good, but 1.8... wow! This new version will absolutely kill the competition.

Currently i can't change somethind in the toolbar.

Tab in XnView?

Tab in XnView?
Yes. Perhaps the tab could say "4 Compared" or "2 Compared" since a tab showing all of the compared filenames isn't practical.

On the other hand...

Maybe the best thing is to leave Compare as a modal dialog for a while and see what the forum as a whole thinks about enhancements to it.

Compare is so new, it's best use and configuration is not yet apparent.

A checksum display would be a good thing to have for me. Like a CRC32 checksum. That would tell you instantly if 2 (or more) files are exactly the same.

CRC display with the filename will be good?

Yes. But putting it in the toolbar would be even better due to long filenames IMO.

I don't know what CRC value this is supposed to be but it's certainly no CRC32 value since that would be an 8-digit hexadecimal value. The one in XnView is a 10-digit numerical value though.

These are requests and no bugs. Moved from "Fixed" to "New/Open".

Note:
CRCs are displayed now, it's displayed next to the filename.

Is this really hexadecimal? I've tried about 20 pictures, and they all had CRC codes without any character A-E in it.

I wonder whether the CRC is really helpful. Perhaps I didn't understand the purpose of it, but I wonder whether a message box: "These files are identical." would be much more efficient.

In RC7 I can see letters a-f, now. :-) (I think the letters in hexadecimal should be uppercase).

I've started a new topic for John's issue "Toolbar button for "Compare...".

Closed.

• Right, i.e. a SFV checksum in TC is uppercase :
; Generated by WIN-SFV32 v1.0
; (Compatible: Total Commander 6.53)
XnView-win-full.zip AB8BA3A2
- Besides, a MD5 should be better, although much longer :
26c4528ffb901cb5fe838299c9f3800b *XnView-win-full.zip
- Here is lowercase, strangely… Maybe to shorten the line?

I have always found lower-case to be much more legible for hexadecimal...
