I *hated* the new import dialog so actually have several cards which have just been collecting images over the past few months. I was so happy to hear that Adobe had put the old Import back with this release. I updated LR, popped in one of my cards, was thrilled to see the old format which shows me the destination directories and allows me to collapse them down and deselect. So I collapse all and select one date, choose the metadata presets (location) and add the keywords for that event and import. Beautiful so far... now, on to the next days. Or so I thought.
I click import the 2nd time, the card reader blinks for a bit, then stops - no images showing to import. Hm.
- I doublecheck the "export card" setting - it's not checked. But I reseat the card anyway. Nothing.
- I check in Windows explorer - yep, plenty of NEFs there to import.
- Okay, maybe it thinks it imported them, so I uncheck the "don't import suspected dupes" (which used to just grey them out anyway) - nothing.
- I exit and restart Lightroom. Nothing.
- I plug the card reader into a different USB port. Nothing.
WTF Adobe? I've never seen this one before. I'll reboot the whole PC next, but figured I'd ask if others are seeing this too...
Okay, I'm forgetful: my line "I've never seen anything like this before" was BS. 6 months ago I *did* see it and the solution was to toggle the triangle next to destination folders as per another thread. Fortunately, right after posting this, whatever screen I returned to in the forums showed me my prior activity, and there was the answer. Apparently that bug is still around - if your images to import won't show up, just try clicking the destination folder panel on the right side of the dialog and they might pop right back in - they just did for me. I sure would like to understand why that happens and why they haven't fixed it.
