Running Aperture version 3.4.3 and it's been awhile since I've loaded or edited any photos. But, when I try to export, I'm not getting any dialog box. I do a File/Export/Version and the word File on the menu stays highlighted for a moment, then goes away with no dialog box popping up. I opened up the preset box and clicked ok again, just to see if that made a difference. I've chosen all three of the rebuild options, but nothing seems to make a difference. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Is your Library Managed, or Referenced?  If the latter, are the referenced originals online?


    It may be best to switch to create a New Library, import one or more photos to be in the library, and test Export again.

    Deleting user preferences many times cures interface problems.  Directions are on the same Apple trouble-shooting page as for repairing or rebuilding your Library.  Let us know how it goes.

    In reply to Ernie and Kirby:

    My Library is managed. I went to File/Switch to Library/Other-New and clicked on the Create New button. Again, nothing happened, so I can't test the import. Also, deleted the com.apple.Aperture.plist file at ~/Library/Preferences and restarted Aperture, to no avail.


    I recently acquired an Accelsior PCIe card to use as my boot drive and think this might be part of the problem. However, I have identified an internal drive for my user directory (through system preferences-user & groups-advanced options) and other applications don't seem to have a problem with this.

    Okay, I've reinstalled mountain lion, reinstalled aperture, moved libraries forcing aperture to make me choose the library or create a new one. I've done both. After creating a new one, I tried to import my existing library. Again, nothing happens. I've never used console before, but the data below is recorded whenever I try to export an image from aperture.

    Hopefully, someone can look at this and say "Oh yeah, your problem is ...."

    Thanks for any assistance.
