Folders and files aren't updated automatically

Post by spookie »

Hello,

Very often when I work with the programme, I have to refresh with F5. This was better with XNView Classic, but MP processes the whole thing faster and has faster image previews. Therefore I would stay with it as I have done for years.
But where can I set it to update itself, i.e. folders and image (names)? I still miss that function at the moment.

Many thanks in advance and greetings

Do you mean an automatic update of the XnView program? Or do you mean that XnView updates folders and images automatically whenever there is an update from outside?

files are added (outside) in a folder browsed by XnView, and not added in the view?

I have a lot to do with press photos, so when I create folders in Xnview and copy images into them, it should update itself directly, just like CLassic. You first have to click into other folders or press F5 and that would be more practical without it.

In XnView, if you create a folder, this folder doesn't appear in the thumbnail view???

Example: you see a folder structure. Then you delete one or rename it. It still shows the folder or the wrong name.
If you create a new subfolder, it is not there immediately, only after F5.

Maybe it's clearer now?

Hi,

If you delete or rename or create a folder in windows explorer, thumbnail view is changed immediatly

In XnView, I am not not talking from things in Windows Explorer, I work directly in XnView.
Here an example. I created in XnView the Folder on the right side "Cooper S...." and on the left side it only shows "Neuer Ordner" for new folder. It overtakes on the left side after F5 or opening a different folder from left side. It would be great, if the programm would do this itself.

Another example: I have moved per drag&drop the 2 folders from right side to the left at "Mini".
Result is: right it is away, left side it is still there and will only go away with pressing F5.
