0.97.1: Batch convert of PDF filename

Post by wfa »

XnView: MP 0.97.1 - 32 bit
OS: Windows - 64bit

When converting Filename does not behave like XnConvert

Effect: Resulting files are not in the correct folder.

1. Right click on a PDF file
2. Select Batch convert
3. In the output tab check both Multipage options
4. In Filename box put: {Filename}\###
5. Click convert

Details:

In XnConvert when I put {Filename}\### in the filename box under Output tab, a folder with the same name as the filename is created and all resulting images will be inside that folder.
so this pdf file

Code: Select all

abc.pdf 
will result in --->

Code: Select all

abc\001.jpg
abc\002.jpg...
But in XnView MP, when I put {Filename}\### in the filename box I get

Code: Select all

abc#01.jpg
abc#02.jpg

:bugconfirmed: Thanks to your detailed description I can reproduce the problem.
The problem is that you have \# in the filename, so it's to escape #. I'll fix it, and you'll need to write \\#

I don't have a # in the source filename.
The # is a placeholder in the naming schema of XnView/XnConvert called "#: Numeric enumerator" you can see it when you click on the arrow to the right of "Filename" box in the Output tab page.

Just use any file in XnConvert and put->> {Filename}\###
You will see that the converted file will be stored in a newly created folder with the name of the file, and 001 will be the filename.

But in XnView this doesn't work, the new filename will have # in it.

yes but if you use {Filename}\###, you have \#, and \ is used to escape the # character, so {Filename}###

Now I'm facing a different problem. I'm not able to open PDF files in XnView MP. But in the same time I can convert PDF files in XnConvert. XnView doesn't seem to recognize gs the same way that XnConvert does. So I cannot test this bug.
I followed all instructions in the Wiki and the forum.
XnConvert Version 1.80 - windows (Mar 2 2019) - Libformat version 7.26 (32bit)
gs 9.24 (32bit)

should I post the problem in the forum separately?

So the only way for this tp work is instead of
In the filename box
{Filename}\###

I used :
{Filename}\\###

double backslash
