Category "Other" Unable to delete?

Post by rinthe » Thu Aug 17, 2017 3:37 pm

I recently had to rebuild my Categories using all the images that were tagged with the metadata using the "Import XMP subject or IPTC keywords to DB Categories" function.

I noticed that all the default categories I was able to delete except for one: "Other". Never had this issue before.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Yes.
Later, I created new categories , then I could delete this one.

I dont know if anything else permits to delete it
I think it's not possible to have no categories at all.

I can delete categories I created myself. I can't delete the "Other" Category that comes by Default.
