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

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

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.
