Category disapear / can't add

Post by FrankvanK » Fri Nov 01, 2019 3:06 pm

I'm using XnView MP Windows, Version 0.93, with my pictures and database on a external harddisk.

I don't know if I do something wrong, but "Category"don't work very well. I do the following:
  • Select one or multiple photo's;
  • Select more categories, I want to assign to the photo’s;
  • Click on an other photo or outside the photo’s;
  • Go back to one of the photo’s which I add the category;
  • The category is not assigned to the photo !!!!
  • If you have multiple photo’s selected, sometimes there are only a few that had the catergory added to the photo’s, but not all of them
  • Sometimes it is also not possible to remove a category from a photo. I just unmark the category, go to an other photo and back to the first one the category is still there.
I have to reboot the computer and hope that the categories will work.
It takes a lot of effort to categorise the photo’s this way, because you have to check all you work twice.
Is this a know but or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks Frank

Hi Pierre,

I put a video unlisted on YouTube so you can see what I'm doing:

I can't reproduce this problem
