I am wondering about the Catalog size versus media. At the bottom of my IView screen it notes the Catalog size (currently 432.7 MB) and next to that number is Media (currently 2.2G). I've had my catalog crash before and I know it needs to be limited to 1.5G. Does that mean the catalog or the media needs to be limited to 1.5G?

Thanks

Felice

PS: is anyone trying the beta 2 version of Expression? Is it worth trying yet or just waiting until it's generally available?

The limiting size is for the catalog file. There is a 2GB file size but catalogs will start behaving erratically at about 1.5GB. So keeping the catalog size below that is the wise thing to do. If you find your catalog beginning to creep up in size you can reduce the size of the thumbnails and then rebuild the catalog or eliminate or reduce any Previews if you have those being created.

I've used the EM 2 release version and it runs pretty well. My biggest beef is the GUI and icons. Oh, there is one issue I found with the EM 2 version, at least for me, and that is the EXIF date displayed by EM 2 is 8 hours off that displayed by iView, which reflects the actual date of the camera.
