Can't find catalog section
« on: May 15, 2019, 09:26:21 AM »
When I launch Plus, I get only the regular contact sheet window.  Don't see any options to open such in the dropdown menus.  You show "Navigate" tab, etc in the pdf- I don't see any way to way to get there to even begin creating a catalog.

Perhaps you could post a screenshot of what your window looks like?  Use the 'Attachments and other options' link when you're composing your reply to this message and there you'll be able to upload your JPEG format screenshot.

Thanks,

Kirk,

I think these are what you suggested

Rick,

I think these are what you suggested

You have the left pane hidden.  You'll have to open it up by dragging the vertical bar on the left edge of the window over to the right a bit.  Once open you'll see the Favorites/Navigator/Tasks panes, and a button bar at the top that has two choices.  The right-side choice will show the Catalog Organizer.  The left-side choice will show the Favorites and Navigator.

HTH,

-Kirk

Thanks!  Both laptop and desktop opened that way, no indication there is anything there on the left.  Just took me a bit of fiddling around to find the left edge of the window not only resizes the window to the right but also, when the cursor changes the icon, opens the Navigator.  Not too intuitive- perhaps with the Plus version the default should be to open with the Navigator window open?  I can't afford to be using up all these brain cells with the number I have left :)

The default is to have that panel visible.  I have no idea why it was collapsed for you.  You never closed it down yourself?

No, that was the way it opened.

No, that was the way it opened.

It remembers and restores the panes as they were last set.  If you've never run PM before then they should all be visible.  If you at one point closed them, then they'll remain closed on startup until you expand them again.

Anyhow, I'm glad we've got it working for you and if they ever spontaneously end up closed again, please let me know.

Interesting topic - I see the two tabs: Favorites/Navigator left and "Catalogs" right. However There is no selector for one of the catalogs already created. If I want to see the content of one catalog, I have to click on the rating stars in order to make a selection.
I would like to be able to select one of the catalogs, get a window/contact sheet for this catalog and can handle the content as in any other contact sheet - or am I not seeing the whole thing? Screen attached.

Thanks, Markus

Search for "" (enter the empty double quotes and press enter/return) and you will see all of the images in all Catalogs that you have set to Search.

Simply activating the Catalog's Organizer (that's what we call the second tab) does not open a tab showing all images in all of the active catalogs.
