After migrating from PL4 to PL5, I was poking around at some older files I had processed in earlier versions of PL. By earlier, I mean PL3 and earlier. I hadn’t touched the files in years.
Some of my older files have lost rankings. I can’t determine the pattern yet, but it seems to be anything before somewhere in one of the PL3 builds.
Losing rankings is not a terrible problem, but it’s definitely a pain, and it leads me to wonder what else might be missing.
Is there an official policy on what image edit properties are supported across the different versions of PL?
ETA - With the same folder open in both PL4 and PL5, side by side, the image rankings appear properly under PL4 but are missing under PL5.
Why are they not carried forward?
ETA 2 - It’s worse than I thought. Files I edited last summer with PL4 are missing their rankings.
In PL4 the entry in the sidecar file is “Rank”
In PL5 it’s “Rating”
Some of the older rankings are being carried forward, and some are not. It’s maddeningly inconsistent.
Is anyone else noticing this behavior?
