PE9 working correctly in W7 Prof with 9000 images and tags showing correctly.
Except Catalog Manger Dialog Box is empty for all three positions for choice of Catalog and actions are greyed out.
The Custom Catalog position is selected to see all the images. Above the Dialog box window it gives the path to the My Catalog JKC folder (C:\Photoshop Catalogs\ My Catalog JKC) alongside the Browse button.
Because the Dialog Box is empty all the action buttons are greyed out and I am unable to Move the Catalog.
I need to find a way to get My Catolog JKC to show in the Dialog Box so that I can move it.
Thanks. The Browes button is active. I can select it and navigate to the Catalog but the Catalog still does not appear in the Dialog Box.
If I select NEW I do get a new Catalog named "My Catolog" in the Dialog Box but the Organiser is empty and I assume I would have to add all my photos back in to see them in the Organiser. That is not practical so I tried copying all the sub-filders and files from the "My Catolog JKC" to "My Catalog". I would expect that the My Catalog would then have all the photos and would remain in the Dialog Box. But all that happened was that the "My Catolog" dissapeared from the Dialog Box so it is again empty. I then had to get back to MY Catalog JKC to see my photographs but the Dialog Box remains empty.
Do you have any other suggestions?
Ken, thanks for reply. By trial and error. I opened the My Catalog JKC folder and clicked on the Catalog.pse9db file and that brought all the photos and tags back into Organiser. I assumed I had forced PE9 to use the My Catalog JKC folder.
I tried another way. I again created a new catalog My Catalog TEST which appeared in the Dialog Box. I then navigated to the My Catalog TEST folder using the path given in system info. I then copied all the files from the My Catalog JKC folder into the My Catalog TEST folder replacing all the files already there plus adding some new ones. When I reopened Organiser all my photos were there but the Catalog Manager Dialog Box was again empty. The folder path next to Browse had reverted back to the My Catalog JKC path. I could not see My Catalog TEST in any of the three options for Catalog location. However the systen info still gives the path to the catalog as the original path to Catalog TEST! I still cannot see the catalog in the dialog box so cannot perform any of the tasks. So back to square one!
There's no telling what hidden info is in the database files that is used by PSE to correlate the catalog name with its file path for display in the Catalog Manager.
I'd suggest creating a new catalog:
