Ingest only displays 1 thumbnail
« on: July 20, 2019, 11:48:03 AM »
MacBook Pro 10.14.5
Photo Mechanic Version 6.0, build 3331 (38ae33c)

I have the Ingest dialog set to "Open Contact sheets during ingest".
Every time I begin an ingest, a new contact sheet opens and the 1st thumbnail appears as normal. But after that, thumbnails no longer appear automatically as they are ingested. The ingest continues to run normally, but even after it's complete only 1 thumbnail is ever displayed. Manually rescanning during the ingest does work though.

Anything special about the destination folder?

Not that I'm aware of, no. I normally ingest to 2 locations, a local hard drive and a networked drive. I wondered if the problem might be related to the networked drive, so I skipped it and tried just the local drive but it made no difference.

Can I see your Ingest dialog settings?  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,

Looks like pretty normal settings.  I'm not sure what would cause that to happen.

Is the case of all of the letters in your path the same as the case of the actual path on your hard drive?

Oh fudge.
I recently reinstalled my system, and my home folder, which was cleverly named "Home", had to become "home" as macOS doesn't allow caps any more.
Never occurred to me to check the path as it still ingested to the right folders.
Problem solved. Thanks Kirk... you're my hero man!

You're welcome.  I need to put in a check for this to warn of the problem.
