Two basic questions
« on: December 12, 2015, 07:02:25 AM »
Hi,

I am starting to incorporate PM into my mainly LR workflow.  Two small things would make my life easier...

1. I would like to map PM keys to work like LR for culling. Namely I want the X key to be always "tag" (in my mind tag for delete). I don't want it to toggle tag on and off.  And then I want U to untag.  I am new to PM so not sure if this type of key mapping is possible.  (I think it is hte "+" and "-" key that i want to map).

2. This is actually a LR question: I have a lot of legacy photos in LR that I want to now cull in PM (way faster!!). In LR, I want to filter for pictures that are missing. There is a global "Find Missing Pictures" but it finds all of my offline photos too. I want to create a view or filter that shows missing photos in a LR folder or view (not the whole catalog).

EDIT: On #2 Found recommendation of "Synchronize Folder" here: http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?topic=10114.0

[Moderator, can you move this to Support forum, that is where I intended it]
Thanks!
Rob.

Photo Mechanic does not offer the ability to customize the keyboard shortcuts.
