Hello folks,
I just imported one Photoshop Elements catalog from PSE6.0 into LR4 using "File:Update PSE catalog ...". That worked well.
As I'm using multiple PSE catalogs I then wanted to import the next one into LR4.
So I switched to the 2nd catalog in PSE to make it the current catalog in PSE and tried to follow the same procedure in LR4.
Alas, the menu entry "File:Update PSE catalog ..." in LR4 is now grayed out, so that I can't import the 2nd PSE catalog.
That would make it pointless to move from PSE to LR4.
Can it be that LR4 assumes, having imported one PSE catalog is enough? If yes, is there any way to overcome that?
My platform: W'7 64bit, PSE6.0, LR4.0, installs in German language, PSE catalogs located in a user selected folder
Thanks a lot in advance,
OMB
EDIT: I finally found out how to overcome that limitation myself:
1. Close LR4
2. Open LR preferences file "C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences\Lightroom 4 Preferences.agprefs" in a text editor
2.a You'd better make a backup copy of that file before playing with it
3. Locate the "Adobe_successfulUpgrades******" entry - in my case it started in line 5
4. Delete that entry; important: make sure to delete all lines of this entry: the ones ending on a backslash and the closing ",
5. Save and reopen LR4 -> the disabled menu entry is now available again

The CSH file simply stores a Custom Shape for Photoshop to re-use.
By its nature you can only have one active at any one time but you can view them all together in the drop-down from the Options Bar or in the Preset Manager.
