0.99.7: categories moving about.

Post by zarlan »

XnView: MP 0.99.7 - 64 bit
OS: Windows 7 64bit

When I'm in a folder, and I download a new file there, sometimes the categories for the previous file there (in the cases where this has happened, I have sorting by date, with newest first, so the newest file, before the one I just downloaded), are moved to the new file. The previous file now has no categories, and I have to select both files, and mark them as both having all the categories (to restore the categories of the previous file), and then remove all the categories from the new one, before I can start setting the categories for the new one.
(in cases where I download a number of files, at least in one case, four of them, one random one of those four, will receive the categories of the previous file)

In other cases, this doesn't instantly happen, and I select the nee and previous file, to set a couple of shared categories …and then see that all the categories have moved from the previous, to the new (except that the shared categories I set, are set on the previous file), and I have to do what I described above, anyway.

I think this also happens sometimes, when I switch from one folder to another, as well, but I'm not 100% certain.
I also think it occasionally happens, when going from one file to another, even without new downloads, but again, not entirely certain.
Needless to say, this is very annoying.

Edit: Oh yes, I forgot about this:
Sometimes, rather than all the categories, instead the most recently set categories are moved instead. Whether this is a little better or far worse, I'm not sure.

Well yeah.
Pretty much what I described in my initial post.
Browse a folder, and then download a file into that folder, and see if categories jump, and/or select a new file and a previous file, and click on a few categories, in the Categories set panel, and see if categories jump…
(preferably with sporting by date, descending, to be as close to my conditions as possible)
Do this a couple of times. (it doesn't happen every time, but fairly commonly)
