When I select a set of images and then initiate the Slideshow (CTRL+L) with "Wait for spacebar for next image" checked ON, *and* "Loop until cancel" is OFF, every image is correctly displayed except the very last one in the series.

What happens to the last image in the series?  Is it not shown?  Is it visually damaged?  Does the slideshow spontaneously exit?

The image is not displayed.  The last one actually shown is the next-to-the-last image.  Hitting space bar again results in nothing happening.  Hitting it a second time results in the slideshow ending.

Is it a particularly large file, e.g., a big tif? It may take PM considerable time to render the image, more than the pause between two images. If that's the case than you won't see the image until the rendering is done.

Nope, last image is a 446k JPG file.

Hayo, Mike,

I'm able to reproduce the problem.  I'll get it fixed soon.

Gentlemen,

This build should fix the problem with the Slide Show.

Mac:
http://www.camerabits.com/download/PhotoMechanic5R15807.dmg
Windows:
http://www.camerabits.com/download/PM5SetupR15807.exe

It also now re-draws the label text if you make any soft-edits (tag, rate, color class) so if you have those variables in your label text, you'll get visual feedback when you make those changes.

Please let me know if the build solves your problem (or not!) ;)

Thanks,

-Kirk
