Hi,

 

As of a few days ago i've had a slight problem with my aperture libary.

 

I can no longer drag and drop images out of aperture onto the desktop or other apps etc.

I have not changed anything it was working fine until just recently - I haven't modified or done anything to change the behaviour.

 

Aperture settings has previews enabled.

I have attempted to regenerate previews by selecting images and clicking regenerate

I have rebuilt permissions

I have rebuilt the entire library

I have re-installed aperture

I have manually deleted previews and thumbnails from within the aperture library to force a rebuilt.

 

Nothing works.

 

I cannot drag out files

with the exeption I can drag and drop files which have had edits done to it - so the original master has been edited and it's created a modified version.

 

As I said - previews are enabled and I can also right click and export version or master without issues for any files.

 

I have latest versions of aperture 3.

    Dan,

    can you please clarify  a few points?

     

    Aperture settings has previews enabled.

     

    Have you enabled "New projects automatically share Previews"?

    How is "Share Preview with iLife set"?

     

     

    I have manually deleted previews and thumbnails from within the aperture library to force a rebuilt.

     

    Has the rebuild worked?  Have you checked in the "Masters" folder, if the previews actually exist for the images, that will not be dragged?

     

    Have you checked each project in question, of the Previews for that project are enabled?

    Select each of the the projects in question and ctrl-click (right-click) the gear-icon in the upper right corner of the Library inspector. Check the setting for "Maintain previews for project".

    If the previews are disabled in that menu, you cannot drag previews from the library.

     

    Regards
