Photo Mechanic Plus (R5277) 10/29/2020

  ● Added: Adding offline photos to a Collection is now possible. The image must already exist in the catalog that you’re adding to its collection.
  ● Added: Relocation capability for telling Catalog where a folder has moved when the moving was done outside of Photo Mechanic Plus. A 'Choose new location...' contextual menu command has been added to the 'Folder Path' tree view items in Browse tree.
  ● Added: Metadata scanning is now more resilient when encountering non-canonical paths. This should result in more reliable scanning for files/folders in Scan to Catalog and Catalog Sync.
  ● Added: Manage Catalogs now displays a notification when Maintenance Reintegrate is needed.
  ● Fixed: Active Catalogs counts are now correct after deleting a catalog.
  ● Fixed: Renaming a collection does not update the name of the contact sheet tab.
  ● Fixed: Refreshing a Collection tab after having renamed the Collection results in an empty Contact Sheet view.
  ● Fixed: {filename}, {filenamebase} resolves to URL-encoded string when image is offline.
  ● Fixed: Preview no longer jumps to a random image after saving to the source folder. This would also affect the Contact Sheet if you have your preferences set to make the Contact Sheet track the image being seen in the Preview window.
  ● Fixed: a crash that could occur after using any dialog with a “Close” option and then closing the Contact Sheet tab that was open when the close option was used.
  ● Fixed: JuiceBox Exporter no longer gets a copy error when copying pro files.
  ● Fixed: Reverse sort checkbox not checked when opening new Contact Sheet and preference default is set to reverse the sort.
  ● Fixed: Contact Sheet loses selection after deleting an image in the Preview window.
  ● Fixed: Organizer counts wrong following rename/relocate of folder paths.

  ● Added: Reveal in Finder… contextual menu item in the Preview window.
  ● Fixed: a crash on startup when the cache folder could not be created.
  ● Fixed: Ingest now ignores Time Machine backup folders.
  ● Fixed: Pasting from Rich Text adds leading space when the text field already has some text in it.
  ● Fixed: Preview window reports zero total items in title bar.

  ● Added: Show in Windows Explorer… contextual menu item in the Preview window.
