• Fixed: Collection Contact Sheet sort method reverts to default when adding an image to a Collection.
• Fixed: Remove from Collection is always recursive.  Added a new option to remove at collection and below.
• Fixed: Find and Replace doesn't preload item data when only searching filenames.  This results in filename searching results being inconsistent when there are many images to search on a Catalog-sourced Contact Sheet.
• Fixed: Catalog fails to fully delete when unexpected files are found in the catalog's folder (.DS_Store on macOS, thumbs.db on Windows.)
• Fixed: Crash with MOV and MPG4 files that don't have mdat blocks.
• Fixed: Improper display of some Chinese characters.

• Added: Increased transparency of thumbnails when performing drag and drop.
• Fixed: Wrong number of selected items after adding to collection.
• Fixed: Undo in Metadata dialogs goes too far and removes all field content.
• Fixed: Stripping trailing period creates a new folder, which can sometimes lead to a permissions issue when attempting to use Copy/Move.

• Fixed: Copy and Paste shortcuts do not work when renaming from Contact Sheet.
