Hullo all.
New boy here with a question.
I have been using MP for a couple of days now, and I have most things sussed.
However, I have been going through my photos setting categories and I have set the wrong category for two or three of my photos.
I have searched and searched, and for the life of me, I cannot figure out a way to remove the little yellow category icon from these photos, so that I can then apply the correct category.
Please, how do I go about doing this?

Hello wqllqce. Welcome to the forum.

Have you tried optimizing and/or rebuilding the thumbnail cache?

In the categories pane (near preview), you can uncheck category...

Tried rebuilding the cache but to no avail.

You are on the ball.
My layout has the preview pane switched off as I really don't need it.
If I choose another layout with the preview pane switched on, then I see that one of the tabs is for categories and I can change by checking/unchecking.

Thanks for your help guys, much appreciated.

I will try not to break anything else. :)
