So in order to get the selections from the catalog that is with your boss,one way is that you can ask her to send you the catalog, as all the star rating are stored in the catalog.
However you would need the remaining 10 folders as well, because if you merge the 2 catalogs, the remaining 10 folders would show questions marks.
Or what you can do is that you can wait for her to be back and then get the catalog and the folders from her and merge the catalog with your catalog.
And you should be able to get all the ratings in one catalog.
Please let us know if it helps.
Thank you very much for the reply.
I do have the remaining 10 folders here at the office. My boss just copied those folders onto a drive to take with her. So if she sends me the new catalog she creates for those remaining folders back, I can then merge that new catalog with the existing one here, with everything staying in tact? Meaning, whatever changes she makes in the new LR catalog, if I then merge it with the existing one here at the office, I should be able to see her selections, star ratings, edits, etc., as long as I have the same original RAW files to direct LR to?
That is correct, you will be able to see the changes that she has made to the catalog once you merge the catalog.
Thank you very much for your help!
