Hi,

An update to LR finally broke Rob Cole's awesome Treesync Plugin. It looks for a folder called Filename Templates in the LR folder, doesn't find it and fails. It still works if you don't try file renaming though. I've stuck up a bounty on Bountify to fix it as I wouldn't know where to begin:  https://bountify.co/fix-an-adobe-lightroom-plugin, but if anyone here knows how to fix it or what broke it, pls share how and I'll post that too to speed up the process. Alternatively the bounty is there.

I think LR still uses the "Filename Templates" folder for storing renaming templates, and its location hasn't changed.  It's in the "Lightroom" folder you get to when you do Preferences > Presets > Show All Other Lightroom Presetes. 

 

Are you getting an error message or something else referring to this folder?

Hi John,


The plugin looks inside the Program Files Lightroom folder, but LR is saving inside appdata. Any ideas how to move the LR folder? Otherwise thanks for the tips - have updated the Bountify with that factor.

The author of the plugin passed away around 2015?? Do you think Adobe can resurrect him?

Is there an error message? What does it say exactly?
