Constantly "preloading metadata"
« on: December 16, 2021, 04:09:10 PM »
Hoping someone has an idea.

PM Plus v6.0 build 6097 on Windows 10. Single catalog of about 20K images.

On PM, run query keyword = "person x"
Result set about 2000. Query tab says "Search 1"

"preloading metadata" Wait 6 minutes.  :'(

Scroll down (once!)

Query tab says "Search 2"

"preloading metadata" Wait 6 minutes

And so on.  Every scroll or even switching away from the PM window and back increases the Search count (same tab)  and causes a 5-6 minute wait while "preloading metadata" completes. Please tell me I missed a simple setting...

Appreciate any help.

What sort type are you using?  Is your catalog still being built?

Is it possible for you to make a screen recording and share it with me?

I have not heard of this issue before.

Thank you for replying.  Not sure why I didn't see this before.  Bob Russell gave some good ideas wrt Preferences and all appears to be working at this time.
