weird problem guys.

I'll show, in the upper left of a project '1 of 2 ' becasue they've been duplicated and/or worked on, and then collapsed.

Now, ( not sure what's changed other than moving them to a referenced location )

When I click onthe Number it will change from ' 1 of 2  ' to '2 " but no chang ein the photo.


I unstack the photo, the original will show up next to it unstacked and unrelated.

If I 'consolidate original' - it makes no difference




DId I screw something up ?

The entire lirary is like this



iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 32 GB DDR3, Triple TB Display

    What is your Aperture version?


    i am not really sure, if I understand the problem correctly. Are you saying, that the stack shows the wrong items in the stack? Is this in the Browser only, or also in the Viewer?


    If you see apparently wrong images and suspect a problem with the referenced images, try to toggle between original master and version: select an image and press "m". Then you will see, if the thumbnail or preview is referencing the correct image.


    • If the thumbnails in the browser are not correct, select the images in the browser and use the command "Photos > Generate Thumbnails" from the main menu bar,
    • If the previews are wrong, use "Photos > Update Preview" or hold down the "⌥" key and select   "Photos > Generate Preview"

    If none of this helps, use the "Library First Aid" to repair or rebuild the Library.

    First check that you have NO filters set -- and in particular, that you do not have checked, at the top of the Filter HUD, "Stack Picks Only".


    What container is selected?  Does it happen with any container selected?

    Wombat – Did you customize the hotkey in an older version of Aperture, or do you still have it as the standard "Command-\"?
