Color Folder Labels
« on: November 29, 2010, 10:33:08 AM »
Color folder labels are not being shown in Photo Mechanic. They can be modified, but they do not appear in PM. For example if we control-click on a folder and select green as a color label, the green label will show in the finder but not in PM. See the attached screenshot. Is this a known bug, or is there something we can do on our end? Thanks for any help.

It's not a bug, but a design issue.  PM does not ask for that data if the volume is networked.  Only local volumes are asked for color label information.

Thank you for the quick reply. Is there any chance of having that implemented? All of the work that is done in our office is on those networked drives, so it would be extremely helpful for PM to show the folder labels on networked drives. Thanks again.
