    lightroom cannot import in place

    glenna Level 1

      LR 5

      Master folder on local drive is GRAPHICS

      Original Sub Folders are

           PERSONAL

           VACATIONS

       

      PROBLEM:

      Lightroom says that many photos in the above folders are in the LR catalog, because when I go to import them, as All or New they low light.

      However, in Library View they do not show.

       

      ISSUE:

      If I rebuild the catalog, I lose my extensive set of collections.

       

      WORKAROUND:

      When I created a third folder, under GRAPHICS, called TO IMPORT, LR imports from that folder fine, in place.

      I then need to move the files to the correct folder.

       

      Is there any way to get LR to import in place?

      I tried synchronizing and selecting destination and moving as DNG.

      None of these solutions seemed to work.

       

      Thanks,

      Glenn
