Import button remains grayed out when adding existing folder to LR 4

Greetings.  I'm following the steps in the following link from Adobe:
http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Lightroom/3.0/Using/WSE828B644-9097-46ab-98A7-E2719BBB6647.htm l
The final step, after selecting the folder I want to add, is to select Import.  Except, the Import button remains grayed out.  I'm not sure what to do in order to select Import and add the folder I already have.
Thanks,
Mike H.

Thank you for the information.  Yes, that seems to make sense based on what I've discovered using LR 4.  Still trying to come up to speed.  Appreciate everyone's help with their tips and insight.

Folders per se cannot be imported - only pictures (or movies) in a folder can. So, you have to select a folder containing at least one picture or movie (all pictures and movies found are automatically selected when the import dialog opens). This is probably not the case for the folder you want to add, so "no photos found" is displayed in the dialog center and the "Import" button is greyed out.

  • I'm having trouble transfering bookmarks from Safari to Firefox. File, "Import" button is grayed out. I've gone through your trouble shooting, the database for imports is no longer current.

    I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. I have the latest version of Firefox 5.0. I'm over Apple's Safari, and I'd like to transfer my bookmarks into Firefox. I've gone through your help and support section and found an article that could help me. However, when I click File, the "import" button is grayed out. Which prevents me from importing bookmarks into your browser. So I drug the Firefox icon into the recycle bin, and hit empty trash, then re-downloaded the firefox software from your site, and it seemed to remember my old bookmarks from a year ago. The file, "import" button was still grayed out, so I couldn't update my entire new list of bookmarks onto your web browser.

  • 'sign in' button grayed out when adding account-email address has five letters after the '.'

    so i have this email account that uses a peculiar sever name with five letters after the '.' ie: [email protected] the thing is i can set up the server and user name and pass for the account so that it connects and syncs fine. the only problem is that i have to leave out one of the letters at the end of the address when setting it up or webOs will not let me sign in (the button is grayed out).
    so to get around it, i just left off one of the letters at the end ([email protected]). this let me set up the account BUT i can't send emails because the server requires that all messages come from the internal accounts with all five leters in the suffix ([email protected]) and since my address is missing a letter it won't accept and out going emails.
    Is there any way i can get around this? either by disabling the prevention of entering in 5 letters after the '.' or by going somewhere to add the letter back in after the fact. Please help!!! Thanks

    The problem is where you enter your address and password for ESMTP (outgoing authentication)? Many mail clients let you check a box to use the same username and password that you use to retrieve email. I gather that isn't an option in webOS?

  • Audio crossfade appears inactive (grayed out) when adding it to audio transitions

    Not sure what I am doing wrong here...
    I cannot directly insert audio crossfades into transitions on my audio timeline withought going to the transition point and then clicking sequence > apply audio transition from the main menu. But even then once it is added it appears inactive (grayed out) and I cannot change the lengh or style of the fade...
    Another thing that keeps happening is the program keeps crashing. I get the pinwheel of death and I have to restart the program manually. I dont have any other programs open and my computer is quite beefed up so I don't know what is causing this..
    Thanks for your help!

    Try trashing the preferences with this free app as a first step.

  • Aperture import plug-in won't run.  After examining my library the number of image files stays at "undetermined" and the import button stays greyed out.  Any thoughts?

    Aperture import plug-in won't run.  After examining my library the number of image files stays at "undetermined" and the import button stays greyed out.  Any thoughts?

    Others have the same issue, with the import button being grayed out.  My trail copy expired, but I believe by poking around in the options and selecting another Aperture library and re-selecting, I was able to continue.
    The problem is common enough, that hopefully Adobe will address.  In the mean time, try repairing your Aperture library, checking permissions, exporting a subset of your library for a test, or try putting that library subset on an external drive.  (Can usually avoid permissions issues.)

  • Why is the zoom button grayed out when I scan

    Operating system: Windows 7

    Scanner Cannon 9000f
    When I scan a single image the zoom button is grayed out, but when I scan multiple images it is activated.  How do I activate it for a single scan.  I have selected the item to complete the scan and it is still grayed out.
    Thanks for your help.  Jim

    The person has to have an apple device and also has to be registered with iMessage, otherwise of you try to message them their name will turn red with a ! Next to the name saying they are not a registered use of iMessage.
    If your clicking on the name and typing in the box that pops up, you may be typing in the "subject" area. The iMessage has two sections to type in, the subject and content are. The bottom portion is the content area so if you have a message already started then use this area.
    The "subject" portion can be turned off also in Settings, messages
    It gives the option to turn off the subject portion here

    Hi,
    Has anyone run into this problem for Captivate 8? The "Next" button is grayed out on quiz slides when running in HTML 5 Chrome browser and iPad. The Next button shows in IE/Flash mode.
    Thanks in advance for providing your help!

    Thank you for pointing the right direction. But one quick question.. will the above setting affect my assessment? I have set the pass percentage to 100%...
    My next question - I have a open course menu (TOC). If the learner clicks the Knowledge check page, the knowledge check page is visible, but if you click any other page from knowledge check, it is not going...... by default, it takes to the next page. From that page, you can click any other page... IS this also related to the above option .. pls let me know..

  • When emailing from Contacts, Send button is grayed out

    I'm using an iPhone 5s with iOS 8.2.
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Go to Contacts
    - Select a name
    - Where it lists their email address, press the email address
    - This opens a New Message.  The To: field will have the selected email address.  The Cc/Bcc, From will has my default email address.  NOTE:  This doesn't matter whether using Yahoo, Gmail, Earthlink, or an work Exchange email account.  Applies to ALL email accounts.
    - Type in a Subject
    - Type in a Message
    - The 'Send' button in the upper right remains grayed out
    - If you press 'Cancel' in the upper left, it will ask to Delete or Save Draft or Cancel.  Deleting Draft takes you to the Mailboxes window
    - If you press where the To: email address is, the email you are sending to will disappear and a Circle-Plus sign appears and you have to either type in the recipient again or use the plus sign which takes you back to the Contact list
    I've checked settings, changed default email accounts, deleted email accounts and reloaded, but it is the same behavior.
    Is this a bug?

    Yes, that's a bug. I've seen it as well.

  • Connect to MS Office button is Grayed out - for both Office 2010 and Office 2013

    Hi
    I have recently implemented Sharepoint 2013 Standard for a customer.
    I have got everything to work so far except one important thing, from any Ms Word or Ms Excel application save as SharePoint is missing. While having a closer look I noticed that Connect to Office button is grayed out in SharePoint. 
    During the initial setup, I created the site collection using Team Site template under collaboration. All researching is pointing me to user profile setup with my site host under enterprise section in site collection. 
    I have confirmed that the clients are opening sharepoint from 32bit browser and they have sharepoint handler add on enabled in IE. I have also followed the below guide 
    https://mywinsysadm.wordpress.com/2011/07/28/sharepoint-connect-to-office-for-new-document-creation/ 
    However, I cant actually see any user profile feature as the guide suggests, I can only see "create personal site" under manage profile service section. 
    I have searched & searched and I am not finding any solutions to this problem. 
    can someone point me to the right direction please? is it purely because the site collection is not a My site Host?
    All I need is for users with Office 2010 or Office 2013 to be able to save a document directly in sharepoint. 
    Note - Connect is outlook is working fine though.

    Hi jawad,
    As navigating to a SharePoint Library and clicking 'Connect to Office', the link to document library is added to
    http://[mysites]/_layouts/15/MyQuickLinks.aspx. So, you need to make sure you have your personal site.
    After creating your personal site, please visit
    http://[mysites]/_layouts/15/MyQuickLinks.aspx, check whether it can open well.
    More information about creating MySite, you can refer to:
    http://blog.sharedove.com/adisjugo/index.php/2012/07/25/visual-guide-setting-up-my-sites-in-sharepoint-2013/
    Then go to IE Options->Programs->manage add-ons, make sure all add-ons related to SharePoint are enabled.
    Here is an article, it may be useful for you:

  • I am trying to install Iphoto on my new MacBook Air adn the install button is grayed out  Any suggestions

    I am trying to install iphoto 09 on my new MacBook Air and the install button is grayed out.  Both for installation and custom install.  Is there a problem that I am not aware of?

    Check for receipts
    To re-install iPhoto
    1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)
    2a: On 10.5:  Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name.
    2b: On 10.6: Those receipts may be found as follows:  In the Finder use the Go menu and select Go To Folder. In the resulting window type
    /var/db/receipts/
    A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.
    3. Re-install.
    If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.
    If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.
    If you purchased it on the App Store you can find it in your Purchases List.
