    Hello,
    Filters (notation, colors, flags) do not work in collections.
    In the general catalog, no problem.
    I don't understand

    They should work in collection too. Can you be more specific? What are you trying to do, and shat happens?

    I have in a collection of photos (not a smart collection), some previously selected with 2 stars for example. If I ask in the collection to display pictures with 2 stars, the search returns that there are none.
    The same with the flags.

    That sounds buggy, but I'm sure we'd have heard about it from someone else if it was a bug.

    In a collection, find a photo that you think should have 2 stars, right-click and choose Go to Folder in Library. See if it's got 2 stars there. If it does, the same photo may be in the catalog twice.

    Thank you for your reply.
    I don't have access to my catalog until next Monday. I'll come back to you next week.

    Very good thinking.

    One operational possibility (along the same lines) is that you have created exported versions at some stage and starred either the original or the exported version.

    Check that you are not unintentionally filtering on two criteria at the same time, such as 'two stars and red label', or 'two stars and virtual copy'. That could easily happen and may not be directly clear.

    In the collection the pictures come from the general catalog.
    They had been noted in the catalog in different ways (flags, stars).
    They were then transferred to the collection (click and drag). They are in the collection with their attributes.
    I checked, there is only one original in the catalog.
    In the general catalog, the filtering of these photos works normally, but not in the collection.
    I've done some testing in other collections, same problem. However, it works correctly in the general catalog

    Can you show two screenshots: one of a folder and one of a collection with the same filter?

    What do you mean by "general catalog;" what are you selecting? a folder?
