Unable to see any file types!?
I purchased and installed the latest version of Pixel processor and for some reason now I can't see any
file types when I select a working directory!? I'm on a mac and on Catalina version 10.15.7.
I tried installing and software a few times with no luck! Any help on this would be most appreciated.
@gofer That is very strange. Can you show us a directory listing of that directory?
@wvreeven I attached a screenshot of what's in the directory but even if I go to my other old directories or jpegs, tiff or fits nothing shows up! I don't know if mac OS has updated something causing the issue!!!?
@gofer Did you give APP permission to access the Volume? You can do this in the System Preferences of your Mac.
On a different topic, is the disk mounted on that Volume an SSD? If no then please choose a working directory on the hard disk of your Mac since processing on an external HD may fail due to I/O issues.
I moved everything to my mac HD and gave the application full drive access and still no luck.
and on the drop-down menu in the app it shows now file types I can open.
@wvreeven I think I have solved the issue, the first thing that it opened was the working directory and because I couldn't see any files I thought something was wrong. I had to click on the lights then the file types showed up! So all good and sorry to have troubled you all.
@gofer I see! Yes, now that I read your first message again I admit I misunderstood what you wrote. Glad you sorted it out and sorry for the confusion on my side!
@wvreeven I guess if anything that has come out of it others can have a read of it if something similar is encountered. Otherwise, I now managed to process my very short session imaging M42 before the freezing fog rolled in!
