When using an external DAM / catalog application in combination with C1 as the raw developer, there has always been a nice way to pass the images you wanted to work with to C1.
That is, after search/filter in the DAM you just dragdropped them onto a session album, regardless of their location being spread over several system folders or even drives.
If the images had been developed previously with C1 in a session (or the images were exported including adjustments), the images in the album would load the adjustments from their .cos and .comask files.
Prerequisite is that both applications support the Windows drag&drop interface. Photo Mechanic does, DIgikam too, darktable (though it is not primarily a DAM) does not, Windows Explorer of course does,
C1 used to support this until 15.2 (or maybe in later versions too), at least on my computer, but does not work with any longer in version 16.2.3, on the same computer.
It still works if the source application of the drag action is C1 (e.g. drag images from a catalog), but not from Explorer or other applications.
Can you please try to drag images from Explorer to an album in a running C1 session?
