When you say “from existing FotoMagico 4 slideshow”, do you mean you open the slideshow in FotoMagico 4, copy them there and paste them in a slideshow in FotoMagico 5 or do you open the old slideshow in FotoMagico 5 and copy from there?
correct, I opened an FM4 slide show, marked and copied different number of pics (between 5 and 30) and pasted al in a new FM 5.0b34 slide show.
Just to be 100% sure: Did you open the FM4 Slideshow in FotoMagico 4 or in FotoMagico 5?
no, I opened with FM 4.6.3 an existing slideshow and marked all for coping. Then I choose "New slideshow " in FM5.0b34(21444) and pastes all in the empty storyboard - crash like in that moment. I sent the crash report to 2 seconds ago
I tried now the other way: I opened existing FM4 slide show in FM5.0b34(21444) and copied all pics into a new slideshow opened also in FM5.0b34(21444. No crash but all pics have a little yellow triangle in the upper left corner: “Missing Media File. Click button below to locate the missing file”. BTW a hard job to locate each file because only opening of my iPhoto library was not successful
Thanks for your help. I am able to reproduce this. We’ll try to fix this ASAP.
