Error message: the file named "X" is offline or missing

Apr 16, 2012 6:23 AM

I know that, because I just copied the catalog without negatives, however, I would like to get rid of the message. How can I do that?

    You get the "missing file" message if

    a) either the image has been deleted outside of Lr,

    b) or the image has been moved outside of Lr (via Mac Finder / Win Explorer or via Bridge).


    In case of (b) right-click the image / folder and select <find missing image/folder> then navigate to the correct location and click on the file/the folder.


    If an image has been deleted outside of Lr you can't get rid of the message unless you remove the image from Lr. Right-click the image and select <Remove>.

    Did you ever get a real answer to your question?


    I have the same issue - I've exported a catalog to my laptop. I KNOW the original won't be found. I just want to get rid of that bloody message.

    You can't.

    View in survey mode instead of loupe - that view doesn't show the overlay.
