My client has made changes, but I cannot see them in Capture One Pro. Why is that?
Go to the Capture One Live icon in the Toolbar, click it and then select 'Resume Sharing' underneath your Active Live Collections.
This can happen if you close the application whilst the Live session is ongoing for whatever reason.
But when I press the ‘Resume sharing’ button nothing happens
This means that either the Collection used to create this Live Session has been deleted or the Capture/Select Folder is reassigned.
If the Collection has been deleted, it’s not possible to resume sharing or stopping it. You’d need to wait until it expires.
If the Collection corresponds to a Capture/Selects folder that has changed then:
1. Reset the Capture/Selects folder to the original folder that was shared initially.
2. If while changing the Capture/Selects folder you chose to make it a Session Favourite, delete the Session Favourite.
3. Try to resume.
