Stack and Unstack greyed out

Post by eja »

I have contacted Corel support numerous times and they have been zero help. My images have been imported into a catalog and yet I can not use the stack and unstack command. It is greyed out. The only thing not greyed out is roll/unroll. Does anybody else have this problem? Can anybody clarify the proper use of this function in case I am attempting to use it incorrectly? Yes, I have read and reread the help file. I have attempted the procedure in the helpfile. It still will not work.


Also, I recently went back and used my version on my mac. It is doing the same thing as above. This could be user error or it could be a bug in the program, but nobody on this board has clarified and tech support can not clarify either. At this point, unless I can get better information, I am assuming this feature does not work.


Also, I have been working with tech support since 26 July 2018 on this issue.


Thanks in advance.

Try to change "recursive catalog view" to off - the it works also for other stacks - if "recursive catalog view" is on only a "version stack" can be rolled and unrolled
It ("recursive catalog view") also affects arranging of images: "A stack can be moved around like any other selection of images, and
the order of the images in a stack can be arranged by dragging the images/versions to the desired placement within the stack. That arbitrary ordering will not work when the recursive catalog view is active." (from AS Survival Guide)

Thanks for the reply regarding stacks. I can't find how to set the recursive view to off or on. I followed the link posted also but could not figure out which video is discussing the stacking feature. I also could not find this setting in the help file.

Hey, that worked. Thank you for your help. I don't understand why the Corel support team could not give that answer. Thank you so much.
