Put the project assignement in the dop file


I’m using the same photo library, stored on a big USB 3.1 external SSD drive on two different computers, depending if I’m at home or roaming around.
I use projects quite a lot, to keep in the same place sets of picture that I can finalize when I have time or am in the mood. However, when moving from one computer to another, I loose the project assignment.

If the assignment could be copied to the dop file in addition to the database content, the second computer could sync these after a simple rescan. In addition, if you reinstall your computer, or move to another one, or corrupt your database, or move your photos to a bigger drive, these assignements could be recovered after scanning the right folders.

Are there others in the same situation ?

This sounds like an excellent idea. I have voted for it. I suggest you do the same.

Unique database items are always vulnerable. So having it stored in external files is better then one file contains all.

I voted
(i believe it’s an earlier request to make the Database more a copy and look up table then a storaged of information.)

I like the idea too so have also voted :+1:

Very good idea

Good morning!

Well, 15 votes in 24h definitely requires attention :slight_smile: . @StevenL , @Musashi could you, please, have a look?

Thank you

This gets my vote. It is strange that the present DOP files contain an “Album” tag which appears to be unused so this might be difficult to implement.

Great idea - my vote as well!!!
