This is probably the reason for both your problems.

Other programs in a virtualized OS/2 have no problem opening and changing the images. I prefer PMView because most of my edits are simple and PMV makes it simple to make those changes.

The anomalies you describe do not occur on a regular OS/2 v4.5 fp3 installation.

Well, yes they did. I just did not report it before. I grew tired of the workarounds.

As a workaround I would start a VirtualPC Windows session and use photoshop to edit the images. It was like using a sledgehammer on a gnat.

Now I do a similar workaround except with VirtualBox.

What file system/drive are you using. This sounds like a problem with the underlying file system.

OS/2 is running in a virtual machine, VirtualBox. The filesystem is selected as ATA. The same problem occurs, though, when the file is located on a network drive accessed with netbios.

Is the file actually flagged as read only (attr R+) or is it locked? If the latter is the case, have you tried to establish what keeps the file locked?

The file is not read-only. It is not locked. Other programs can open and edit it.

The defining feature seems to be that the height is at least 3 times the width, i.e., a tall and narrow image.

Are you using any desktop enhancers that possibly are interfering with the menus?

No.

What OS/2 version are you using?

OS/2 v4.52 fp3

PMMView v3.53

This is a two part issue.

1. Occasionally an image file is opened read-only for no apparent reason (the file is definitely NOT read-only). For instance, I open a JPEG image, make some changes and save it with a different name. When I then open the changed file, PMMView cannot edit it! This also happens for images that are similarly created by other image manipulation programs.

The only relation I can see is if the height is more than 3 or 4 times the width.

2. The main menu bar is changed internally to have only two options: View, Help. But it is not actually updated; visually the full menu is still there (a zombie menu?). When I click on the File option (really View), I get the View options even though the option says File. Rather confusing.

I upgraded from v3.51 to v3.53. The scroll bars do nothing in the newer version. The "thumbs" move, the window does not scroll.

In the tree view of directories, some of the tree lines do not appear. And sometimes the +/- expansion button does not appear although clicking in that area does cause the button to show up. The tree does expand/collapse as expected.

I have reverted to v3.51.
