Postby NN634942141864933803UL » Wed Dec 05, 2018 8:06 pm

hi
over time I have created 2 catalogues that now I would like to merge, is it possible ? if in the import pop up window I select import catalogue, this will merge the selected catalogue in the the one \i'm currently using ? (do i need to cancel the imported catalogue ?
thanks in advance

You can just import one catalog into the other. There is basically not much to it.

But I fully understand your fear and you are right. This is what you can do.
Say you have two catalogs, A and B. You like to import B into A. Make a backup of both.

Make a copy of catalog A, named A2. Now copy B into A2 (B is not affected by the import). Check the result in A2. If you are fine, import B into A, and delete A2.

So you do see the images in the browser? What do you mean when you say you can't select them? Do the images in the browser have a ? against them (meaning that C1 thinks they are offline)?

hi ian,
i see all the images in the in the broswer (the tumblr) but if i select one of them the viewer doesn't show anything,
there no ? near the photos in the broswer
but there is a triangle with a ! inside just above the viewer: if i click it a pop up says that same setting could affect the viewer and that the viewer is trying to test the formula, it continues saying that i can deactivate it in the view menu (but i don't find anything n there)

i tried to reinstall everything: c1 12 nd the old catalogues, backed up before the import, but nothing changed-

regards

After the merge, do a catalog verify. Always.
