Re: Should spaces and/or commas be avoided in keywords?

An underscore is probably a better choice in hindsight.

Re: Should spaces and/or commas be avoided in keywords?

I don't use not, and for what ever reason, searching for labels containing hyphens works better than labels containing spaces for me.

Re: Should spaces and/or commas be avoided in keywords?

I use hyphens instead of spaces in all multi-word catalogue labels. It works far better when searching, for me.

Re: can't connect to database after Windows Update

Thanks Geoff & Hert. Had never had download problems before. Was using a PC with Windows 10 Vivaldi & Chrome, and Android phone, and a different laptop too. Just did it again - stopped after ~15MB. No Download Manager. As I said - after reformat was downloading files all weekend w/o other problems. ...

Re: can't connect to database after Windows Update

Rebuilt the PC but can't download the latest PSu. It's always dropping out after ~10..20MB. It's not a timeout issue, the download speed is pretty normal/ responsive. Anyone else experiencing this? I've had to download heaps of other unrelated files/ programs including one 1.3GB for the rebuild, but...

Re: can't connect to database after Windows Update

50% (500GB) disk free. Am currently planning a full rebuild; 3 years since new. Needs a haircut & good wash.

Re: can't connect to database after Windows Update

Hert - I got the 2 PSu database files from a 2 month old backup. These also gave the same startup error message. This made me very suspicious the error has nothing to do with file corruption. So I installed PSu on another Windows 10 PC, copied over the 2 database files, and it starts up fine & displ...

Re: can't connect to database after Windows Update

Worryingly the vacuum failed for both files. For the thumbs DB there was heavy disk IO for ~5 minutes then msgbox “unable to open database file SQL Statement: VACUUM”. For the CAT DB it only took a minute to come to the same msgbox. FWIW I've attached both bug reports although I couldn't see any fur...

Re: can't connect to database after Windows Update

Thanks Hert. I hadn't excluded those two database files in the past. I am just using standard Windows Defender. I have now excluded them but it made no difference.

can't connect to database after Windows Update

When I attempt to run Photo Supreme I get an error messagebox saying "Unable to connect to the database. The database reports: An error occurred while applying the updates in a record: unable to open database file." About two weeks ago it seems something bad happened. I updated from Windows 10 1803 ...

Re: Tiny PSu system font size in v4

I reported another nuisance: the kind of font that PSu uses makes spaces really difficult to discern. Is there a space or not between two words in Image Details. Most of the time I don't really know. It is often very difficult to discern. I have know idea, why PSU uses Trebuchet. Looks nice, perhap...

Re: Tiny PSu system font size in v4

but up to now nobody reported this as problematic (not even mentioned by Windows nor Mac users). I'm using Windows 10 with a 1280x1024 monitor. I preferred the V3 font too - as noted - slightly more readable. It's not a bug or something I'd generally comment on, but please don't assume a lack of re...
