Categorisation seems to be gone

Post by leiper » Mon Nov 26, 2018 9:06 pm

I have categorized a number of pictures. Suddenly when I started Xnview some are gone from Categiries Filter... e.g. one categorie says that there are 5 marked pics, but only 3 show up when I choose that one. Just in the moment I click, the other two glimpse up (not always I think). Is there any way to recreate or refresh it so marked pics and number correspond and all marked pics really show up. For the moment it feels a litte unsecure to use this function! /Leif

I´m using Categories and have made some new ones. But some pics seems to have disappear from a category but the number of pics is still there, so it don´t match - number and amount of showed pics in the category

If you have not use embedded metadata, you can't recreate categories hierarchy.

Please send me your xnview.db, and tell me which files/categories have problems
