Refresh thumbnail

I find the thumbnail is slow to update and often doesn’t update for days (at all?). A work around has been to choose “Restore default thumbnail” and then “Set as thumbnail” on the desired frame. The thumbnail has become an important feature to me and I use it to convey information to my team. The inconsistent thumbnail updates are a little problematic.

Suggested solution: an option in the right-click menu for the file to “Refresh thumbnail”.


Or just a more consistently working thumbnails system…


Well, there is that option too. :grin:

Until this is live, you can force refresh your thumbnail by removing and re-setting the frame as the thumbnail. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

That forces immediate changes.

That usually works but I have had times it didn’t.
