i am organizing my folder-project organization in aperture and i am simply moving PROJECTS from the parent level into a FOLDER. if i look at the PROJECT initially i am seeing images in this project (it is how i know where i want to put the Project organizationally in terms of putting it in one or another folder) BUT when i put it in a Folder i don't see any images when i click on this.

 

i had been thinking this was sort of a temporary glitch or something to do with RAM being used by another program but now i am getting a bit worried about this.

 

about two weeks ago i was seeing the wrong thumbnail image on an image (maybe the image was in a Project that was a shoot of dogs and one or two or five of the images would show cars on the thumbnail) even though when i clicked on the image it came up large size with the correct image.

 

anyway, i thought i rebuilt the library per instructions on this from kirby.

 

do i need to do this again? close aperture and re-open?

 

start looking behind my monitor or under my desk.......

    Jon,

    first check, if you have a filter set on this folder.

     

    Select the folder that you moved your project to in the library inspector panel and look at the search fields in the browser and the library panel and look, if these search fields are showing "All items" or "Showing all". If not, clear them.

     

    Regards

    hi leonie.

     

    i am back working today and i am still seeing this behaviour. if i drag an album from a folder and put it into another folder i no longer see images/thumbnails whereas i did see them before.

     

    i have looked just now in the filter entry area (thanks for the screenshot...) and i am not seeing anything listed in here. One says "All Items" and the other says "Unrated or Better".

     

    i just moved another Album to an existing folder, lost all thumbnail images (nothing shown in list view either) and - then to test i dragged it back to the original folder.

     

    hmmm.

     

    now i am noticing that there is a cycling symbol at the bottom of the Aperture window....

     

    is it possible that there is something going on here (too many images in the album) or some kind of CPU logjam that is causing me not to see images as described? it is seems like something i need to figure out and is sort of disconcerting at the moment.

     

    maybe i the best way to test this by waiting for the cycling to stop i suppose - now that i have noticed this...

    erg. cycling stopped and still no images in this album.

     

    all i did was move it to a new folder to test this problem i was having before...

    Are those regular albums or smart albums? With smart albums you may change the source of the album, if you drag it to another folder.

    hi leonie.

     

    this is very bizarre. they are regular albums (i have not had a chance to use smart albums or stacks yet).

     

    however, after having made a little lunch and read the paper for a bit - i am now back on the computer and all the images are now showing up.

     

    it's very weird and a little disconcerting to say the least.

     

    i even checked to see if Time Machine was running to make sure that this wasn't eating up CPU or something...

     

    there are 161 images in the Album and it seems like this could cause big problems if it is not some kind of temporary issue...

    - i am now back on the computer and all the images are now showing up.

    This looks like Aperture need a lot of processing to simply move a regular library item. Have you had any crashes or force quits lately? Then I'd suggest to repair your Aperture Library.

    thank you.

     

    i just went looking for my print out of this a minute ago and could not find it.

     

    grazie mille!
