Finally getting around to creating one MASTER catalog, after 10 years of working with individuals (for each year).
1/3 way through, was working great, but then import got stuck, reporting "updating stacks." I gave it 15 minutes, but no progress, so tried to cancel. Now stuck "cancelling..."
I've always been weary of the idea of "one-catalog-to-rule-them-all" approach, exactly for such reasons.
Any thoughts on why I'm seeing this?
Will start over, but sure would like to know what I might be doing wrong. I will start with the in question catalog I'm importing from, see if it is the problem, before redoing everything.
From where and to where you were importing ?
Same HD, Master catalog is at the top level of the folders (broken down by years), which contain the original catalogs I was importing from. So nothing tricky. I force quit LR, also restarted my Mac, then reopened the Master, and it seems to have imported the catalog it hung up on. All seems to be fine now, so just a fluke. Onward I go, learning to trust one catalog (with backup, of course!). Thanks
Good to hear that everything is working fine now
