I thought I was copying a picture from my Elements 10 catalogue into a slideshow I was creating under "My Pictures". I now want to add text to it. I opened organizer, found the photo, opened full photo edit and got the message that the file was missing. I browsed for it, found it quickly in the my pictures slideshow file, clickec and got a message asking if I wanted to reconnect it. I clicked yes and got the message that it was in the catalogue. Even more disturbing, I got a message that all files were disconnected. I have no idea what I've done or how to deal with it. Neither the Missing Manual nor Kelby even have the words reconnect or disconnect in the index.
I’ve been trying to follow the instructions to reconnect, and noticed that before I search as instructed the message is that the file isn’t in the catalogue, but when I browse and click on it, I get a message that it is in the catalogue but not connected.
Scenario - Please select a file >> Alt+Enter >> See the location of this file as shown in the Information panel. This location is what Organizer catalog looks for when attempting to display the selected file. If the file is not present at this location, it will call it "missing".
Reconnect workflow will help you update Organizer catalog about the changed location of your files. Were you able to reconnect them?
If not, please share a screenshot of the scenario I mentioned above.
Where are these files present on your hard disk? external hard disk? network location?
