ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Version 10 Layout Save
« on: 2016-07-14 00:04:07 »
Hi there

Does anyone know if there is a way to save layout in Version 10. There was an option in the previous versions.

I work with lists and not thumbnails. I need to resize columns every single time I start ThumsPlus. Not a major issue, but still annoying.

Thanks in advance

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / Stop wasting my time!!!
« on: 2015-05-28 01:34:32 »
I am so tired of this sorting issue. Every time, the release notes indicate that it has been fixed - rubbish! And then I uninstall version 9 and have to re-install version 7 all over again.
I have installed all the ways possible, tried sorting by name, tried sorting by none, etc. Nothing I try sorts it in normal alphabetical order like version 7.
How difficult can it be? My support requests get ignored when I ask if I have done something wrong or missed something?
Cerious Software is spiraling downwards. No support, bugs are not sorted out, etc.
With all this wasting of my time, I am now considering moving away from ThumbsPlus as it is time consuming the installs, uninstalls, etc, when the release notes are incorrect or testing has not been done.
I know it is a beta version but at least have the decency to respond to support requests.
I've had it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not much to say. Looks like the technical division and support division pays no attention to support tickets and forum posts. One would think that a fundamental issue as per my previous post would be the first issue to be addresses in a new release.

Let me first say that I have been using ThumbsPlus for over 16 years and think it has been one of the best image (media) management software solutions available.

Laura and the team are doing a great job so it is with a certain degree of sadness that I write this post and even though I will have to consider another image management solution, I wish the Cerious Software team only the best moving forward.

The biggest problem with the latest versions of ThumbsPlus is the sorting of Thumbnails which is not in a natural sort order. File names that include numbers are not sorted together in sequence at all and makes it very difficult to manage a large selection of images. ThumbsPlus 9 is using Intuitive or Numerical sorting rather than literal number sorting. This is a major headache and unless a person is a programmer, there is no need for this. ThumbsPlus uses an intelligent mechanism for file names sorting and show the file names having numbers in increasing number values. On the other hand, the proper way for any media management software solution is to sort file names by each number in file names.

After several support requests and even a previous posting in the forum about the issue with no response at all, I am somewhat disappointed as this is really a major problem. In my opinion version 7.2 was the best version of ThumbsPlus using the correct file sorting methodology. Unfortunately with all the security in Windows 8 other problems are encountered running 7.2 i.e. "access denied issues' when using external programs from within ThumbsPlus and other "permission denied issues" thus making both versions now basically impossible to us.

So, it will be the sad end to a very long and satisfying relationship between ThumbsPlus and myself unless the file sorting problem is addressed very soon.  Even if I personally won't be able to use ThumbsPlus any longer I will still recommend it to people just wanting to use it for basic media management and do not manage a large number of files with numeric digits in the file names. Unfortunately when there is a need to compare files in a series with numeric file names to make final selections of which files to use and which files to erase, ThumbsPlus is not a viable solution in my opinion.

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / Number sorting Order
« on: 2014-04-30 23:43:09 »
Hi there

Really like version 9, but had to revert back to version 7.

The way numbers are sorted in version 9 is difficult to work with if you have file names starting with numbers which is a lot.

Version 7 sort as:
1
111
2
22
246
3
33

Version 9 sort as:
1
2
3
22
33
111
246

This is a major problem. I have disabled Intuitive or Numerical Sorting in Windows which works 100% in file explorer and other applications except ThumbsPlus 9.

Any suggestions as I would really like to use Version 9 rather that Version 7.

Thanks
