Thank you Mario, that was indeed my problem.
File relations are looking good now.  ;D

General Discussion and Questions / Re: Too many versions

The 156 is the number of files in that version set. If you open the Version Panel you see them all.

I think one of your version file relations rules is too "generous" and grabs too many files?!
If the versions are detected by a regular version rule, you cannot remove them via the "remove manual version link".

Open Edit > Preferences > File Relations and check the version rule you have setup for DNG masters. Make sure it does not find unwanted versions.

After fixing the issue, select this folder in the Media & Folders View and press <F4>,<R> to rebuild the versions. Use "Keep Manual" if you also work with manual versions. This will remove unwanted versions for the DNG file.

How do you "add MWG regions"?

During import, IMatch imports XMP face regions into IMatch face annotations (XMP-mwg-rs tags).
During write-back IMatch produces XMP face regions (XMP-mwg-rs) from existing face annotations (unless this has been disabled under Edit > Preferences > Metadata 2).

General Discussion and Questions / Too many versions
Last post by JohnZeman - November 21, 2022, 10:09:19 AM
Apparently I have managed to create quite a mess of my versions.  :o :'(
What does the 156 mean in the highlighted thumbnail of my attachment and how do I get rid of it?

If I right click that thumbnail and choose select all versions 155 files are selected and for the life of me I can't get rid those versions?  Right clicking the thumbnail and choosing Versions > Remove manual version link doesn't seem to do anything.

For the most part I've been getting along fine with file relations but this has me stumped.

1. Add MWG Regions to the photo (goes into XMP sidecar)
2. Rescan in IMatch. Regions show up.
3. Add GPS coordinates to the photo in IMatch
4. Write back metadata
5. MWG regions are gone.

Of course.
When you open the Viewer, it loads the files currently selected in the File Window.
If only one file is selected, it loads all files in the scope. Unless the "Single selection loads all files" option has been set to "No".
It is "Yes" by default (just checked) because it usually makes no sense to load just one file.

When you first bring files into the Viewer, this behavior is explained with a popup message.

If the Viewer is already open, you can select a different set of files and bring them into the Viewer with <Return> or send to Viewer. See Sending Files to the Viewer.

When you select the top of a collapsed regular or version stack, the Viewer behaves as explained here: Stacks and Version Stacks

I think the defaults may be off (which also happened when I was trying to add Metadata tags to the Thumbnails-my first question here), as I have not changed the setting for the Viewer and the option "Single selection loads all files" is set to "No." But the help states "If only one file is selected, the Viewer loads all files in the active File Window and sets the current file to the file currently focused in the File Window. This behavior can be configured under Edit>Preferences>Application>Viewer..."

So one would think that, by default, the option aforementioned should be set to "Yes," by default. I made the switch and everything works as it should and as it did.  Could this have been changed in the last revision? 

Anyhow, I am glad I figured it out.

I posted the log and diagnostic to show that I had addressed all errors.
Quote from: Mario on November 20, 2022, 08:13:41 PMNo user has ever reported a problem with navigating the Viewer using the cursor keys or auto-advancing when you set a rating or label.

Well you have one now. Different setups and work flows may function to find bugs that perhaps were not previously found. It is a problem that exists in my set up . I addressed all you which you said could be a problem and I am willing to check anything else. It does reduce the functionality quite a bit to have to choose each picture rather than navigate. I can send in video of the error occurring. I am getting a system error sound each time I try to advance with the left or right arrow or when I move the wheel on the mouse. Again, this stopped for a few minutes and everything worked as it should but then it started happening again. All other shortcuts work and if I press the up or down error nothing happens, as it should, but the point is there is no error sound.  And this is not occurring when setting a rating or label, this is happening when I am just scrolling through the pictures using the viewer.

This does not occurs using the quick view. Something is wrong...

Wait, I think I figured it out. I just noticed when trying to problem solve that there is a "Send to Viewer" in the context menu when you choose a file in the File Window. I then read the Viewer help again and I read a line that said "The Viewer works with a set of files you send to it..." So, apparently I have to select all the files I want to toggle through and then hit enter or use the context menu.
