I have no 'Properties' icon. And right-click, then Properties doesn't
display the path.

It didn't do anything.
I ended up deleting one of the collections in the Digikam Settings screen,
and everything seem to have gone back to normal.

Thanks! I was just about to resume working on those. I was there one year
ago and still have not produced the book. There is still much work to do.

Thanks for helping,
