Can't delete searched images
« on: October 30, 2007, 04:12:14 AM »
I don't know if this is a bug or if it is meant to work this way, but if I do a search on a contact sheet (eg I search an object name), and I then get the search results come up, I then want to delete some of those images, PM won't let me.  It looks like it is going to delete then the image pops back up again.

Is there a work around for this?  Or am I doing something wrong?

Cheers

Mike,

Is this on the Mac?  So you're doing a Spotlight-based search?  Do you have your images moved to the Trash?

If so, then I suspect that once they're moved to the Trash, Spotlight is returning them as hits for the search.

You have to empty the trash, then they are gone. Best Karsten
