Any luck with that?Saw this comment in the thread:
> If I import the pictures first and then import the collection with the book then every picture in the book/collection is gets this little sticker with the metadata error -- and the book is empty or only partially filled.
Did he try doing this with a photo less export as well as an export with the photos? My guess is not.
For this test to give it the best chance of working I’d assume he’d need to:
- export two separate catalogs, one with and one without photos. Ideally the one with photos would include a simple collection that contained the same photos (i.e. no book metadata)
- import the catalog containing photos and a simple collection, to get the photos into the destination catalog
- import the catalog containing the book metadata but no photos
Will this work? I have no idea. But the theory is it would get the photos cleanly into the catalog then we can test whether it is the book metadata alone that is the problem. Might also make it easier to submit the book metadata catalog for testing.
Hi - I am having the same problem as drmaxx, from what I can ascertain. I 'selected all' with my book selected in the collections in the book module and exported as catalog, exporting the negative files as well as previews. On my laptop, when importing from catalog, I get the rather complex layout maintained in the book module, and all the images represented in the filmstrip, but with no images populating the book in the content area. It's disappointingly empty. I'd hate to have to start from scratch when working from home with a deadline. Am I doing something wrong? Many thanks!
