Compacting database

Post by jstartin » 09 Oct 12 11:39

I notice that the "Catalog Maintenance" / "Compacting" link in help leads to a blank page. Can we compact; should we; or does it happen "behind the scenes".

In Preferences, and the Catalog section, there are "Compact" buttons for both the Catalog and Thumbnail databases. They definitely work.

In addition to Geoff. There is no Catalog Maintenance in the Help menu, can you show a screenshot where it does?

Thanks all

So easy! But it does show how easy it is for some of us to miss things - instinct told me "Tools". :wink:
