Currently Being ModeratedNov 20, 2010 5:43 PM (in response to nysus)IME Faces can take a few minutes (<10) to update. What happens if you let Aperture run without using it for ten minutes, then close and re-open it?
Is anything being reported in the Activity window ("Window→Show Activity")?
How many images, how big a Library, where is your Library, what %ages free space on your system disk and on the disk where your Library is?MacBook Pro 13", Mac OS X (10.6.5), 4 G / 500 G internal / 4 TB external / NEC 2490 / ColorMunki Photo / Sony a850

Thanks.iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

Currently Being ModeratedJan 8, 2011 6:17 PM (in response to Kirby Krieger)I'm having the same issue with Aperture 3.1.1 purhased from the Mac App Store the other day.
I've imported just over 50,000 images, and I have just under 32,000 faces altogether.
At first, face confirmation/rejection/naming was going well (although slow). Today when I fire up Aperture, I can name/confirm unnamed faces, but navigating away and returning to the cork board presents all the faces I've already processed.
I repaired the library and tried again, same result. I've rebooted and tried again, same result. I've let Aperture sit for 30 minutes before checking again, same result.
Interestingly, if I visit a named face and scroll down to the 'may also be in photos below' section, click Confirm Faces, and begin confirming/disconfirming, that goes well untill I hold down the Option key and click update. Aperture turns the mouse into the spinning rainbow for about 10 seconds, and reverts all the confirmed/disconfirmed images to Click to Confirm without moving them into the upper section of named faces.
It's a bit frustrating to be sure. I purchased Aperture to see if it was any better than iPhoto. It certainly seems to present many fewer false positive face matches, but it's far slower at many operations, like scrolling through the faces/photos. Google's Picasa seems to be far better at face matching, both in reducing false positives, and handling the same 50K images (it doesn't suffer from sluggish scrolling, and provides a much better interface for bulk facing naming).iMac 27", Mac OS X (10.6.6)
