Although a Session does not have the same extensive database of a Catalog, it still makes sense to run diagnostic checks occasionally on Sessions that may be used frequently. The operation looks for errors and repairs damage that might otherwise lead to the eventual corruption of the database.
- Select File -> Verify Catalog or Session. A Finder/Explorer window opens.
- Navigate to the relevant Session ([name].cosessiondb) and click Open. If you attempt to verify the same document, a warning dialog will open prompting you to close it before verifying.
- A Verify Session dialog opens displaying a progress bar, then a path to the database, and a list of the checks. The verified document is not automatically re-opened.
- Select Open to re-launch the current Session, select Verify to repeat the process on the current Session or Close to dismiss the dialog (in order to open another document or to cancel and quit the program).
