Offline browsing

Post by Evds » Tue Nov 18, 2014 7:35 pm

Because the metadata and the thumbnails are stored in a local db i thought that i could use the program for offline browsing but when a network drive is no longer connected and i click on "special items/all" the items that where on the network drive are filtered out.

Is it possible to change this behaviour ?

ps: thx for the great program !

I also would like to request this feature.

All my images are on very large external HDD (16 TB), I pre-generate thumbnails. Works great when plugged in, but sometimes I take laptop away from desk.

For workflow it would be useful to adjust categories when my external HDD is not connected, also check thumbnail for reference. Of course the original image is not available but for me the thumbnail is enough. ;)
