  1. Daminion 6.4 (2099) It's a local catalog. I've been using a number of different kinds of tags including rating, author, people, and custom tags (all feature this behavior). After a bit more investigation I discovered that the ability of the entire group to show up is based on whether or not the top photo of the stack has the tag I'm searching for, if it does the stack remains visible (but when expanded only the those that share the filtered tag remains) but if the top one does not have the tag none of them show up, even if photos below it do have the tag. I suppose I could just apply every tag in a group to the top photo to make sure they remain visible (and maybe this is what I did in the past and I'm just misremembering not needing to) but it's not the best workaround, and if anyone can verify if this is an intended behavior or if there is a way around it I'd appreciate it.
  2. I seem to have lost a functionality, I'm 99% sure I used to be use in Daminion, but it doesn't seem to be working now. Can anyone help? I seem to recall being able to assign different tags to different photos within a group, and then if I filtered by those tags it would include the group in the results, but only those items that match the filter would appear. Now it seems like unless all the photos inside match the tag the entire group won't show up. For example, lets say I tagged one photo with "Alice", one with "Bob", and a third with both "Alice" and "Bob", and then put all 3 photos into a single group. Previously if I had set the tag filter for "Alice" it would show among the results a group of 2 photos, which I could expand to view both that were tagged with Alice, but now that if any of the photos in the group are missing the Alice tag then none of them will show up if I filter by it. Oddly, the search results counter in the bottom left still includes them in the count, but they don't show up (it says "4 of 48 items" but only 2 are displayed). Thanks.
  3. Hi, As I've started digging into Daminion a little deeper I've found a few things I wish I could do, but can't seem to find a way to do them. I've searched the forums but the info seems to be for previous versions, if anyone could offer any suggestions I'd appreciate it! Sorting: 2 questions regarding sorting. First is there a way to set the default sorting to be something other than none? I found an old post with a link saying there was a way to do it, but the link seemed dead. Second, is there a way to sort by multiple criteria? ie Color label first and then rating? Groups: I sometimes have multiple variations of the same photo that I put into a single group while searching/browsing. I assign any applicable tags to all files within the group so they are all available when I filter by tags, but I wish that the number showing how many items each tag applies to only referred to the group, not each individual file. Is there a setting (or more likely, a workaround) that will continue to allow all files in a group to appear for a given search criteria, but only register as one entry per group? Tags: Is there anyway to assign tags into both a hierarchy and a (separate) group? Currently I have locations sorted geographically (which I like) but sometimes I'd also like to have a group of "favorite locations" using the existing tags if possible. I guess I'm kind of trying to tag the tags. Anyway to do this? Thanks!
