Hi.
I've checked that the "treat jpgs and raw as separate file" box preference is not ticked, but LR has suddenly started importing them separately.
What have I done to make this happen (I'm guessing I've pressed something..).
Ive spent a while searching, but can't work it out.
Any help now gratefully received.

What camera and how were the images stored? If your camera has two memory cards and stores the raw/dng files on one card and the jpegs on the other card, then Lightroom will always see them as separate files because they will be imported in separate sessions.

Thanks both.
I have a Leica Q and soot in RAW+JPG.
I haven't changed anything on the camera and think I've probably done someting in LR unaware and by mistake.
I'll check folders etc when I get home..
Lightroom only has that one option in the preferences, there is nothing else you can do wrong.
