I think I have a seriously f...ed up catalog file.
After converting from PSE 11 to 13, PSE Organizer crashed a lot. After trying out all hints and ideas found or given, I now have a stable situation. The repair tool finds no errors. I have lost a lot of Marked faced in the process.
I guess that 50% of the photos now have "Marked faces", and new faces can be manually added to those photos. The other 50% I can run "Find People", but none are ever found. Trying to "Mark Faces" manually brings up a message saying "people analysis has not been run". Even new pictures can be imported to my catalog, but no faces found. I can add as many tags as I like by dropping tags to the picture-view, but faces can not be marked.
Please fix/improve the repair tools, or make a stand alone repair tool for the catalog file, maybe with an editable xml-file as a middle step!
My catalog consists of 60000+ photos and has been converted many times from Album via many versions of Organizer, several PCs with different versions of Windows 32 and 64 bit. Most of the pictures are digital photos, but also quite a few scanned analogue photos. At the moment I have no use of PSE. (I use only the Organizer part of it)
My config: Win 8.1 PSE 13.1

Does anyone in Adobe ever read the things we suggest or report?
