How do I force Tiger to Make Album from scratch?

I tried MAKE ALL, MAKE ALBUM and MAKE CHANGES. None worked. All they are doing is the changes.

I have lots of subfolders and when I go to a sub folder the main menu is not updated. Thus, a complete rebuild is in order.

I am sure it is a simple setting I am missing. Thanks.

Just delete the output. Open the project. Then, on the left, hover on the little down-arrow to the right of the project name, and choose Delete... Delete local album. Then a Make Album will create the album from scratch.

But a simple Make Album should work, even without deleting anything. Just make sure you're not telling jAlbum to process only updated subdirectories, under Album > Settings > Advanced > General. Especially with these JSON-driven albums, that's a terrible option - it needs to process all of the subdirectories.

Will that not delete all the content as well?

GOT IT! I had the "Only subdirectory" box checked.

Thanks!

Only Delete entire project would delete the content. The "local album" is the output, the finished product. The input is untouched if you're just deleting the output.
