Saved favorites not working?
« on: October 18, 2016, 03:15:22 AM »
This question might be due to a misunderstanding on my part and if so my only excuse is age, being a senior citizen does have it's perks :D

I have saved a number of favorites after closing all my folders in PM 5 and then scanning all folders to bring up a new contact sheet. You will see in the JPG that are are I think 5.

Having saved them I cannot get them to open and bring up the saved imaged as a favorite contact sheet. I have ensured that all other folders are closed. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Silly question perhaps, but have you already tried double clicking the favourite in the favourites panel? What does PM show if you right click on such a favourite? And finally, do the folders in your favourites still exist?

Sorry for delay in responding Hayo.

Yes, I have tried double clicking and I have checked that the files actually exist.

What I have do to is to delete the old favorite and star again from scratch.

And then they work for a time?  Or they immediately don't work again?

Frank,

They immediately do not work again.

Is there something special about the paths in the favorites that you're creating?  Are they on local disks?  Network shares?
