Thank you forum members for recently making me aware of the batch metadata editor.  Now I'm ready for the next step.

I have a set of files with a number of keywords embedded in the jpg file and I want to remove only one of the set.

kw: pets;dog;cat;rabbit
kw; pets:rabbit;fish

I want to remove ONLY the rabbit, but leave the pets, dog, cat, and fish as is.

prefer to be able to do it in thumbsplus, but I have no problem using a stand alone program.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / finding and deleting duplicates
« on: 2016-12-16 12:41:05 »
Is there some process within TP that will allow me to identify and then automatically delete duplicate photos.

I tried to copy all of them into a new folder hoping that I would receive an option to replace/rename/delete but that didn't happen, they just all got copied.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / keyword search (not)
« on: 2016-10-09 14:24:37 »
I need that ability to to search for files without a particular keyword, and it needs to tie in with an advance search.


File name mask: pet*.*
keyword not "dog"

Also need this to pair with an advance search and keyword not "dog"

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Advanced tab in find
« on: 2016-09-03 11:17:36 »
Can someone help me with the correct syntax for an advanced search.

I need the equivalent of "contains" that I see in other programs.

Example: tn.[name] contains 'sea'  would find "old man of the sea.avi" and 'seaman first class.jpg' as well as "sea level.mp4"

I know a little bit about SQL but I've found that not all SQL statements work in Thumbs Plus.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Print catalog
« on: 2016-08-27 07:00:22 »
When I select the "report" layout for thumbnails, that is very close to what I want on paper.

Is there a way to print a catelog with a layout similar (or identical) to that thumbnail layout?

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / sd cards
« on: 2016-08-05 18:28:32 »
When an sd card is inserted in the reader (or a usb thumb drive in inserted) windows assigns a drive letter and the files are all accessable as if it were a normal hard disk.

Unfortunately. Thumbs plus doesn't recognize these drives until you close the program and restart it.

At that point, I can access it with thumbs plus as normal.  I can even assign a volume alias to the card.  But if I remove the card, I would have expected to see it listed as an offline disk, but it's not there.

Am I missing something, or is this a feature that just doesn't exist?

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / thumbnail image
« on: 2016-07-01 09:36:11 »
I have a collection of video files which all open with the same announcement screen.  

As a result, I have a folder with over 100 identical thumbnails all pointing to different videos.

Is there a way to tell thumbs plus to look deeper into the video to pull out it's thumbnail?  Short of that, is there a way to substitute with a saved image file?

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Separate configurations
« on: 2016-07-01 08:58:10 »
Is there a way to have separate properties for different files?

I want my file called "Brown Family" to open in the c:\pictures\brownfamily folder but I want the smith family file to open in the c:\pictures\smithfamily.

Also I want to control the auto thumbnail.  I may want one to auto create and another to wait for me to tell it to do so.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / SQL in searching
« on: 2016-07-01 08:54:20 »
When doing a search, there is a tab and an input box for SQL Statements.  At one time, I had a list of a number of squ statements that could be used,  These statements worked in earlier versions (I think it changed in v9)

Apparently either field names, or the actual SQL interpreted has changed and many of them no longer work.

Is there an updated file with this information?  Or is it actually a bug waiting to be fixed?

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / import/export
« on: 2016-07-01 08:48:32 »
When I export all or part of my database everything runs fine as normal.

However, when I try to import that txt file into another database I get an error saying "format error in file"

When will this be fixed

It would be nice if drag and drop would work for facebook.  It's a nice feature to be able to connect, but up/downloading pictures would be really nice.

When exporting a data base. it would be extremely helpful if I could designate one or more galleries to be exported and leave everything else alone.

Is there a version 11 on the near horizon?  If so, is there a "what's new" document that can be viewed?

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / Reporting from v10
« on: 2015-07-16 19:08:54 »
Probably the same for previous versions, but here goes.

I need to produce a text only report listing file name, key words, some user fields, and annotation.

My preferred format would be in a tabular listing.  I could likely adjust the format the way i want if it could be exported to a spreadsheet.  

Also, one of my user fields is a link to web data.  Is there a way to have this active so that clicking on it will take the user to the correct page on line?

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / thumbnails in files
« on: 2015-07-14 18:38:59 »
I am using v10, but I think the answer should be the same for either version.

As I delete files, or delete just the thumbnails, it appears that the thumbnail files don't go away.

Currently I have over 16 gigs of thumbnails for almost 1 million files.  

Do the thumbnails go away at any time?  What happens to the data (key words, annotations, etc) if I delete the thumbnail files.

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / Setting some defaults
« on: 2014-12-05 14:19:09 »
Is it possible to define separate defaults for individual data bases?

I have a data base called work orders which I want to open in the work order folder when I launch the program, but I want the family photos data base to open in the pictures folder.

Is there a way to do this?  If not, Laura, is it possible to implement in a future update?

ThumbsPlus Suggestions / Facebook Enhancements
« on: 2012-04-29 13:15:04 »
My first impression of the new facebook feature is quite positive.  As an additional enhancement, would it be possible to have the annotation uploaded as a comment when the picture is copied to FB.  And in the other direction, can the on line comment be added to the annotation?
