    Return to thread entry

    That's what I'd expect to happen if there are no unread posts in a thread. If there are unread posts, clicking on the thread title should take you to the oldest unread post. If you want to go to the last post in a thread, read or unread, clicking on the timestamp above the name of the last...

    A not working feature is annoying

    Did you check the Catalog Settings (not Preferences)? On the Metadata tab there's the option to "Look up city, state and country of GPS coordinates to provide address suggestions". Obviously, that setting needs to be checked. Then, look in the Activity Panel (click the down arrow at the right...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    1. None that I can think of. Doesn't matter how fast your download speed is, you're constrained by how fast the Adobe (Amazon actually) servers and the interweb can get the data to your ISP. 2. In theory, you can start now, though I'd persoanlly wait until the dust has settled on that big...

    Develop module Change of Sliders in Basic Panel when Lightroom Presets are used

    IIRC, they're a hangover from earlier LR versions (LR2/3) which somehow were still picked up when the new Presets system was introduced. I definitely had them on my Window10 system (I think this is a Windows-only issue), and in fact commented about it on the other forum. I can't remember how I...

    Question about sync'd collection in Classic and corresponding album in Cloudy.

    The rule is quite simple.....everything in the cloud (that is able to sync, so exclude keywords etc.) must exist in a sync-enabled Classic catalog, and if it doesn't yet exist in Classic when the catalog is launched then it will automatically download into that catalog. You've just taken major...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    If you unsync that album in Classic, it will be deleted from Cloudy.

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    1. No, you can move those collections out from the "From Lightroom" collection set to the new Collections Sets tha you create to mirror the Cloudy folders. Going forward, any new album that you create in Cloudy will always initially appear in Classic's "From Lightroom" collection set, but can be...

    Missing User Templates in print

    That's the default location on Windows for all the various preset types (but not Develop Presets now). If you uncheck that "Store Presets with this catalog" option, Lightroom would automatically find and use any of the presets in that default location. Unless you have a specific requirement...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    Cloudy doesn't store the images either in the cloud or on your local hard drive in anything but date-based folders, and you've presumably been coping well with the album organisation model for the past couple of years. If you stick with Cloudy, but re-introduce Classic back into the ecosystem...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    Do you mean the disk folder structure? Correct, it wouldn't be the same....but why would you want it to be the same? My Classic folder structure is date-based (as that's by far the simplest way to store them on import), my Collections/Collection Sets structure is organised by subject...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    Before turning on sync on the new Classic caatlog you would first go to the Preferences>Lightroom Sync tab. There you can change the sync download location to whatever location you want (I suggest you first create a parent folder on the desired drive using the file system, then select that...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    I can't think of any way that Option 2 could mess up the existing Cloudy, basically nothing is changing there, you'd just be creating a new Classic catalog from the contents of the cloud. Re the last question, I assume you mean sync the collections in Collection Set A, then create Folder A in...

    Want to sync existing Classic and Cloudy Libraries....best approach?

    This is a good approach if you want to save space in the cloud, but has the disadvantage of losing any of the organisational work that you may have already done in Cloudy. Probably my preferred approach if you intend to maintain Cloudy as the preferred main base. Yes, deleting the duplicates...

    Classic ignores sidecars when importing from networked drive?

    I just tried that procedure (importing with Copy from my NAS drive), and it all worked as expected....XMP sidecar files were copied and read, all metadata included during the import. So I can't explain your results, sorry.
