Perhaps you could show us a screen capture, and also describe in more detail the problem ... what box where you expecting to see when you click on them? why do you think they are missing if they don't have exclamation points?
Thanks for your prompt reply. I was mistaken. I have blank squares on
some missing photos and exclamation points on others. I attempted to open
the squares several days ago as I began this project but without success.
Today, however, they do open even though they carry no exclamation point
and they do direct me back to the search feature to reconnect the original
I am very grateful for your help, however. I plunged into Lightroom a few
years ago and have made every mistake it is possible to make, having now
16,000 unconnected photos. This is not software you learn by doing.
If the search dialog box comes up, are you able to reconnect? If not, why not?
Yes, I have been today. Maybe I was clicking the mouse outside the box
before now and no dialogue box appeared, but I finally got it working.
