    I opened lightroom today, imported some photos and started to edit. Paged through the filmstrip at the bottom of the page to see what I flagged for additional viewing and nothing showed up there. No flags, no badges no metadata badge, nothing. I looked at my options and all were marked to be visible. I have re-booted re opened and re clicked on and off all items. Nothing. What am I doing wrong, and how did it all change since yesterday?

    Im no expert but did the meta data for LR5 get moved or deleted it in C:\Users\chrid\Pictures\Lightroom in windows by default.

    Try making the film strip bigger by positioning the mouse just above it and dragging up. You'll know you're in the right place when the cursor changes to a double-headed arrow thingy.

    tomrok, that was it. I now remember accidentally grabbing the top of the strip and moving it, but was interrupted by my wife and never associated the grab with the disappearance of my badges. Thank you for bringing me back to earth.
