    Recently updated my Mac. Unfortunately I do run into problems now using Content Wizard:

    - I start CW as usual, choose "New Product", pick the ZIP and an Image.
    - Installing the ZIP and Smart Content works fine.
    - Creating the ZIP with the Smart Content works fine as well.
    - But once I click on "Save" to close CW I get a "beachball of death" on Mac and can no longer use studio.
    - Need to force quit studio and restart it to work again.

    Have macOS 12.4 and Studio 4.20.0.17. Any idea?

    @Rod Wise Driggo I'm not using the same version of DS on my Mac, but try these 2 tests to see if your Mac still hangs...
    Instead of clicking the "Save" button, try:
    1. Click the "Cancel" button which should also exit CW
    2. If cancel hangs, then instead try clicking the "ESC" as the Escape key also exits CW on my Mac.

    Sounds like an infinite loop.  Can you post the log?  Bring up the log in a text editor like Notepad++ BEFORE starting CW (or before clicking Save).  Click Save.  Go back to the Text Editor; it should say external application updated it, reload?  Do so.

    I can confirm that this is an issue. While it does work with 4.15 and 4.16, 4.20 behaves differently. I will doing some checks, as I have quite a lot of Rendo content waiting for some CW magic laugh

    Apologies if this is a repeat question. I've tried searching and the specific question hasn't come up.

    The Smart Content tab in CW doesn't display user created sub-categories. I can add user sub-cats in Table View without problem, but then when I switch to the Smart Content tab for a quick overview of what content is going to land in which category, I can't see my user categories.
    Is this normal or have I missed an option somewhere?

    Looking for some help for Genesis 8 and 8.1 figures.

    Some of the figures I'm trying to install have been created for both Genesis 8 and Genesis 8.1. There are separate .duf files for each (G8 & G8.1) figure. However, the Genesis 8.1 figure file is under the Genesis 8 folder in my Content Library, so when Content Wizard analyzes the files, it sets the Compatibility Base to Genesis 8, not Genesis 8.1.

    I know I can manually set the Compatibility Base, however, when I click on the button for Compatibility Base it only displays 'Female' or 'Male'.

    How can I change this so I can set the correct Compatibility Base? What path do I need to use?

    Thank you.

    Sorry for asking this again, but it's really being a big issue for me. Am I really the only one still having this problem?

    I'm using the latest version (v1.2.1), but Content Wizard is constantly creating duplicated smart content references for me (one as LOCAL_USER and another as  the actual Product).

    How can I stop it from making the LOCAL_USER version? Or at least how can I easily remove the LOCAL_USER entries afterwards, because manually going over the thousands of alphabetically sorted LOCAL_USER files to remove reference is a lot of work.

    Any sort of assistance is appreciated.

    On Windows with 4.20.0.17, I do not see this issue.

    I don't see how you are adding "user sub-cats in Table."  CW does not allow that.

    I can confirm you cannot set it.  I will have to look into it.

    I can confirm I am seeing this in DS v4.20.0.17.  I think this is because Daz changed the behavior for SC in a recent release.  No idea how to fix this though

    Hi there RiverSoftArt, thanks for getting back right away, I appreciated it.

    It's a bummer that we can't solve this.

    With that said though, even with this issue, I want to say that "Content Wizard" and "Smart Collections" are amazing products that are worth every cent invested, thanks!

    Is it possible to run two instances of Content Wizard in two different instances of Daz Studio?  Some things, like texture sets are quick to install, while others, especially character presets, can take a long time.  I was wondering if I could save time by running more than one instance.  My concern is that I'd just end up with two really slow instances, or that something could get screwed up in some other way.

    I don't know as I have never tried.  From CW's perspective, you should be able to.  However, I don't know how well DS will like hitting the Daz database at the same time.
