How to add files to an existing catalog?

Postby robgo2 » Tue Sep 13, 2011 2:20 am

I have been trying to add new image files to an existing catalog, but EM does not seem to want to do it. I have opened the catalog and selected File > Import Items > From Files/Folders. However, when I choose the images to import, nothing happens. What am I missing?

Thanks,
Rob

Unsupported file type?
Hard to say. If you'd like to start a support case and provide some examples we'd be happy to have a closer look.
Kind Regards,

Drew,

It's the same file type that is already in the catalog.

You can drop some of the files giving you trouble. We here on the forum could try it in our EM environment.

I think that I found the problem. The files that I wanted to import were already in the catalog, albeit buried in a subfolder that I did not see.

Using the Catalog Editor to Edit an Existing Catalog File.
Open a Catalog file by using the Catalog Editor.
If you have not yet created a Catalog item in the Catalog file, choose the Add arrow, and then choose Catalog Item.
Navigate to the Catalog item that you want to modify, select it, and then, from the context menu, select Properties.
To modify the display name displayed in the Catalog, enter the Catalog item name that you want to use in the Title field.
To save your changes, from the File menu, select Save.
