Adding to collection also adds to every slideshow inside collection

I create collections and inside a collection I can have one or more slideshows containing videos. I usually add some videos to the collection and then is navigated to the collection with the videos selected and then I create a slideshow with these videos. Sometimes, not always, this workflow starts behaving so that the added videos to the collection is also automatically added to every slideshow inside the collection. Have I by mistake changed any setting with a shortcut or what can be the reason?

 

Before adding a video to collection "Myra filmer"

After adding one video.

Hi,

"Sometimes, not always..."

As far as I know, and I've saved many slideshows and print jobs (identical behaviour), when you add pictures to a collection, they are always added to the slideshows and print jobs inside that collection.

To avoid this, you can create a collection set, let's say "Myra" containing "Myra filmer" and the slideshows, with those slideshows at the same level as "Myra filmer", instead of under it.

That way, whenever you add pics into Myra filmer, they will not be added to the slideshows.

Hope that helps,

Michael

Thanks for your reply. I did some test and it is exactly as you describe. I also found that it is possible to add new slideshows to a collection and select Location in the "Create Saved Slideshow" dialog and then the new pics are not added to the other slideshows in the same collection.

So now I know "why and when" even if I find it to be a little strange behaviour.

Thanks,

Sten

That's not to say that you should never put slideshows and print jobs inside a collection, though. It's useful when you have different designs/layouts for the same set of pictures. In that case, adding/reordering/removing images affects at once all slideshows/print jobs inside that collection.

Anyway, glad you have learned a bit more about how that works!

Michael
