All layout and sections are gone after importing extra scans to project

Post by ProCro »

Is there a way to re-import old layouts and section after I've imported new scans to project and created new top view? They are still in results folder, but no visible in project. I have 3.9 r8 version.

In 3.9 the layouts and sections from the project you're importing into are to be processed again
If you import a project with it's own sections these will not import into the other.

Same in origins.4.0

@VXGrid : maybe something to look at, keeping all layouts when importing from other projects.

I'm not sure if this works with 3.9R8 but I know that it should work with 4.0:
I know it is a little bit stupid and no one would ever think this is possible but:
  1. Open the project
  2. Click on open (like opening a new project)
  3. Go to the Orthophotos subfolder and select the *.lse file which you like to get back into the project
  4. This won't get saved into the project, it will only be visible in this session, so you need to duplicate the imported layout/section and reprocess it.
In the 4.0 version we could in theory just reattach them when opening with the obove method, don't know why we are not doing that.
Guess it has to do with how the project is structured, I'll add it as a feature request to choose if everything should get recalculated, only the standard views or nothing (currently the question is all or nothing I think see

)

This works as described. Too bad you have to import one section at a time. I have 111 of them :D
