Clear Rejected Folder not working


I have the paid version of FRV 1.1.1, and have found that when I select the option to clear the Rejected Folder, nothing actually happens.  I can't try it again, since this option is now greyed out, but when I check the folder, with Windows Explorer or with FRV, all the images are still there.
This is on a Microsoft Surface 3 running Windows 8.1.
I'm assuming this is a bug of some sort, but if I'm missing something, please let me know.

Thank you very much, we will investigate this.

Could you please specify

  1. Do you use default _Rejected folder name, or have changed it to 'Global Rejected' folder (i.e. full path like c:\files\rejected)?
  2. Is confirmation dialog displayed when you select 'Clear Rejected' or not? (sample: )

Thanks for the reply.
1.  Yes, default _Rejected folder is in use; nothing changed or customized.
2.  When it failed, the confirmation dialogue did *not* appear.
For what it's worth, the last few sessions it has worked properly, so I'm not sure why it failed during those other sessions.
So for now, I'll consider this an unexplained glitch or uncertain origin, and will repost if the problem recurs.
By the way, this program has really worked well for me.  I bought it for use on my new Microsoft  Surface 3, which functions as a very small and light laptop replacement, running the full version of Windows 8.1.  FRV is great for viewing and culling my Raw images, tweaking exposure as needed.  And since I have Photoshop CS6 installed as well, I can just hit "R" and open the file in Camera Raw and Photoshop for more complete editing options.  This is a winning combination for me.

Thank you for information.

We've found small bug in this situation:

  • Current folder is changed using Folders Panel
  • But no file is selected via Thumbnails panel, so main image area is empty

In this case:

  • Clear _Rejected item is not grayed out in File menu (but it should because no current file displayed in main window)
  • But this menu item do nothing (because of no current file open)

To be fixed in next release: Clear Rejected to be grayed (as Next/Prev file in menu) until some file is displayed in main window area.

Thanks. I'll look for the update.
