I am using the trial version of  Expression Media and there is a lot I like about it, but the "bugs" concern me. I have about 200 files that somehow got duplicated thumbnails in my 2,000 image catalog.

In many cases, one of these dups has the keywords, the other doesn't. I could let the program get rid of the dups and risk losing the keywords, but my question is:

---am I missing a way to just manually delete each copy of the duplicate thumbnail that doesn't have the keywords?

The only option I can find is to trash it, and that trashes the file from my hard drive (leaving the one thumbnail still in the catalog). Fortunately I have a backup of the folder, so I still have the file.

No help in the pdf file. The search feature is useless, it never finds a word even though I can find them myself in a search.

just select thumbnail(s) and hit the delete key.  That removes the image(s) from the catalog but doesn't touch the original image files on your hard drive.

Thank you so much, Bob. I was looking for that option under the right click options menu.  Never occurred to me to try the delete key. Too easy maybe  Wink
