How to STOP warning about opening too many images?
« on: January 24, 2023, 10:32:50 PM »
I keep getting the warning about whether I am sure I want to open so many photos at once even though I set maximum amount of photos to edit at once without warning to 100.  This happens even if I try to open 30-40 at a time so they can be sent to Capture One for processing.  Using 6738 build.  Can we actually have an option to turn this warning off in a future version of PM?

Is this on macOS or Windows?

Are your photos paired (RAW+JPEG)?

Are you launching with a particular app, or letting PM decide which app(s) to use?

OK, what command are you using to edit your photos?  "Edit Photos" on the Image menu?  "Edit photo" on the right-click contextual menu?

Settings -> Launching -> Maximum number of photos to edit at once.
I set it to 200, so I only get a warning when it is over that

I am not able to get this issue to occur. Photo Mechanic always follows what I have set in Preferences. Is there any scenario where it doesn't give you the warning?  Ror example, if you select 2 images and use the shortcut, does it still warn you? If you set the maximum to 500 (which is the limit of what it will allow) and use the same set of 30 or 40 items that were previously giving you the warning, do you still get the warning?
