Ok, ws trying to answer a posting at the Forum:https://forums.adobe.com/message/11222114#11222114And ran a test and a mod to a test, and discovered a possible bug


Opened existing catalog, Intentionally tried to accomplish an Import of images already in the catalog, from the folder the images are already in. Yes, I know not normal proper workflow.


Now with or without the option to Don't Import Suspected Duplicates, the thumbnails of the images remain grayed over, and you can not select them. Does not matter if COPY, COPY as DNG, MOVE, or ADD is selected


Ok, so that is an odd thing to try, continuing


Intentionally outside of Lightroom Classic, with LR closed, copied on image to another folder. Launched Lightroom, went into Import, went to the folder containing the image, I can select it, And I can select it despite if I have Don's Import Suspected Duplicates on or off.


One interesting wrinkle, apparently I left my catalog Library in the condition where I do see subfolders. And during import I am in fact seeing everything, including two copies of the image in question, one already in the catalog (grayed over) one not in the catalog (ready to import)


Followup on last statement, Either a new button, or one I overlooked, In Source a button to Include Subfolders

On my WIN 10 wksta the behavior is different.. The first behavior mentioned, working with images already in catalog, will not COPY, Copy as DNG, MOVE, or ADD, will not occur with or without Don't Import Suspected Duplicates.

However in the second scenario , where I intentionally copy an image already in the catalog to a different location, Well that image well show up as a candidate to Import if Don/t Import Suspected Duplicate is not checked, it will not if that option is checked.
