  • Cleaning Auto Categories

    How can I clean Auto Categories of subitems, that are no more relevant to any image in catalog? Like Keywords (IPTC) or Creator entries.

    'Database Optimization' should do the trick.

      I did it (using Remove all DB Info in Database Maintenance dialog), yet some values still persist... Selecting such value when Image Well is displayed brings an empty list - something is not right.

        That's why I said 'should' :-) The AC database never has been bug free in the last decade.

        After removing all items in database maintenance and optimizing the db, my dashboard counts 0 files and the image well also is completely empty. But the auto category 'artist' is showing many names (several even more than once) and 'keywords (iptc)' is full of unused names.

        At AC, bugs are the salt in the soup and no one at ACDSystems has the balls to turn it into a smart program.

        But don't worry, LR isn't any better!

            Hello, I have the same problem. I see this one year old post, maybe somebody gets the solution in April 2018?
