Bug report: Photos imported from catalogue does not show up in navigator folder hierarchy. Lightroom version 5.6.
1. Import pictures into LR. (dng)
2. Import pictures into LR on another PC. (dng)
3. Make changes to some pictures on second PC.
4. Export changed photos as catalogue from second PC in dng format.
5. Now, reimport photos on 1st PC to propagate changes made in LR on second PC. No duplicates are detected. (error 1)
6. View photos in the physical file folder (explorer). They have been renamed XXXX-2.dng
7. Photos are now invisible in navigator folder hierarchy inside lightroom. (error 2)
8. Photos are still visible inside "previous import" catalogue under navigator.
9. To work around, inside LR drag all photos from the "previous import" into another physical folder. Must be a different folder than where the pictures resides.
10. When done copying, drag all photos back to the correct folder.
11. Photos will now show up under the correct folder, however they will not be correctly identified as duplicates of the first one, so no way to smoothly import the changes.
