0.99.1 (Mac) "Open in Finder" open the folder but don't focus on the file

Post by Nicolas »

XnView MP 0.99.1
MacOSX 10.15.7

I don't know if it's an actual bug or if it should be in the suggestions forum :
If I "open in finder" a file, the folder containing the file will be opened but the file won't be selected. It would be very useful to select the actual file, finding the good one can be time consuming in big folders.
This behavior can also be misleading: if use "open in finder" on a file (A) but the folder containing this file was already opened in the finder with another file (B) selected, XnView will switch to the finder to display the folder but (B) is still selected...

It's all good, thanks Pierre!
BTW I think the french translation should be "afficher dans le finder" instead of "ouvrir dans le finder"?

This is probably not a good idea to comment a "closed" bug, but I just realized that while it's all good in explorer mode, the function in "view" mode still behave as before (not showing the actual file + labelled in french 'ouvrir dans le finder')

I'm afraid not! In view mode, if I right-click on the opened picture, item menu is still labeled "Ouvrir dans le Finder" and once selected it shows the parent folder instead of the actual file.
