Hi Marion

I just stumbled about it and could not find it in the documentation:

https://www.photools.com/help/imatch/#fw_basics.htm?dl=h-26
In this link the highlightes image has also a hatched (schraffiert) area.
What does this mean?

Greetings

Mario:
This means that the file has a label for which no color is configured under Edit > Preferences > Metadata.

Thanks
EDIT:

Could it be the reason that the Label is set by Lightroom and IMatch can not handle this correctly?
According to the Attachement, the Label is "Grün"

EDIT2

Got it, I added "Grün" as a new Flag in the Metadata settings -> Problem solved

Mario:
The XMP label is just plain text. Every application out there uses different names as labels, often even depending on in which country you use that software.
When you save a "Grün" label, a user in the US would save a "Green" label.

This is why IMatch allows you to define any number of colors for any number of labels.
