Hi when I batch rename files the attached error message appears. This doesn't appear if the files are made available offline. Files in cloud in Dropbox. Windows 11 and Lightroom Classic 12.1Screenshot_20230214_213936.png

LrC  cannot work with files in the cloud, they need to be stored locally.

As you've found out, you won't get this error message when files are available offline.

I keep all my photos on Dropbox, and have Preferences > Sync set up like below.

Thanks. Annoying given the limited storage on laptops compared with cloud, but at least I can work around it
