ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: TP v10 : new folders not being scanned
« Last post by wingfield on 2021-09-20 19:20:03 »
Hello Daan,

can I simply re "build" that mapped drive, or will it lose all my meta data and libraries?

btw  -  the folders are mostly green, but some are blue.  so they are not grey.

Also... if you're sure that you are seeing the new NAS and you see TP actually making thumbnails, but they're not being saved, then you may not have writing rights to your database or the database file has somehow been made read-only.
Maybe you're still seeing the thumbnails for the old NAS - does it look greyed-out in the tree?

ThumbsPlus has to match its thumbnail records in the database to the actual files in your system. With regular harddrives, it identifies them by their volume label. With network drives, it usually matches them by their share name (UNC). Drive lettters are not used. If your new NAS drive has a different server name, TP probably won't match your existing thumbnail records to the files on the new NAS (but see: Options | Preferences | Thumbnails to see how it performs the match on your system).

For this reason of matching files to their corresponding thumbnailrecords, it's important that you're consistent in how you approach your drive. In the tree, you may see it as a regular drive due to its mapping to a drive letter, but you'll also see it in the network branch. To ThumbsPlus, those are two different drives and when you thumbnail one, those thumbnails won't show when you look in the other.

(you can disable the display of certain drives, or the network branch, in the tree panel using Options | Preferences | Disks & Folders).

This is not a direct answer to your question but hopefully it will help you to find the solution.
ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / TP v10 : new folders not being scanned

my new folders are not being scanned.  I think I know reason; but don't know how to fix.  I got a new NAS.  the new NAS has a different IP address; but it's mapped to the same drive.  in TP, I actually see the new IP address, so TP seems to have picked this up; but for some reason new folders are not being recognized even though I've scanned the entire tree.

Well, someone is still at Cerious. I emailed them and got a reply saying the pandemic and other factors are delaying things. They also restored the forum after I pointed out it was down. So that's kind of encouraging.

I hope everyone's doing well, too, but I am getting a bit worried. It's been a really long time since there was any kind of message, even a simple "we're still here" from the TP folks.
Hi, ongoing problem with paintshop pro images - the latest version has its own thumbnail handler and they show in windows explorer but not in T+ . In the past other handlers have been successful in combination but not now.  the advice for heic on here includes the statement that T+ will make thumbnails for unsupported types if they show in explorer and you put file loading as none, but this does not seem to work? is there another bit I am missing? I have assumed that file type is raster image and left everything else alone.   I know it says it is possible to make them from the clipboard but I am talking many K  so not practical.  Anyone else found a method please?
I often use an external File Rename program in order to batch replace parts of filenames, but this is problematic if TP is not running; annotation and keywords can be lost.

TP has the option in Preferences to watch external folder/file changes to prevent that loss, but that only works if TP is running. TP either needs a more robust filenamer of its own, or a persistent module that's loaded at system startup to watch for external file/folder changes all the time, even if TP itself is not running.

You probably mean Image | Stamp in the viewer/editor.

This will print over (a section of) your image, like you asked. However if you prefer to add a border first and print on that, you can use Transform | Crop/Add Border for that. When you enter a negative value for 'amount', a border will be added (with positive values, the image will be cropped).

I'm sure that in an older version of TP I could overprint text across the bottom of an image, eg a copyright statement.
I've forgotten how to do it... can someone help?
