Double Pictures

Post by MichaelP » Sun Aug 02, 2020 10:14 am

Why are pictures sometimes displayed twice, even though they are only saved once on the hard disk? This can be observed in the category selection. When choosing a folder, everything works as expected (once).

I dont understand your answer-question. Yes, in "Einstellungen/Katalog/Basispfad" is noted the correct path of all of my pictures.

do you have set the 'base folder' on a clean catalog? Perhaps you had browsed folders before?

Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately again I don't understand it. What does "clean catalog" mean?
I don't know when I defined the "base folder" an what I am doing before.
Is there a possibility of reorganization that removes such duplicates from the catalog?

Is it a reason to use 'base path'? Do you use a networked path?

Is not a network-path, but another partition of the same PC.
And yes, Im using a "base-folder".

'base path' is only needed when you use more than 1 computer
