When I open a certain cookbook, I get the message “For this cookbook: NAME.GCF the category index file (.cdx) is longer than it should be. It may be corrupt.” What is happening?

You will get this message using NYC 5.69 or earlier on a cookbook that has previously been opened by NYC 5.70 or later. NYC 5.70 or later rebuilds the category index for a maximum of 500 categories rather than the previous 200, which was the limit for versions prior to v5.70. Note that this could have occurred using NYC 5.70 to import or search a cookbook in your NYC 5.69 user folder. You should discontinue use of v5.69 or earlier after you start using v5.70. If you want to use 5.69 again on your cookbook, you can rebuild the cookbook’s index using v5.69 and Tools… Data Management… Cookbooks tab… Rebuild Indexes. When I open my cookbook, all the recipe images are mixed up and no longer coincide with the right recipes. We have had reports of this happening on rare occasion during either the File… Upgrade… operation or during File… Import Recipes… and we are investigating. In the interim, rebuilding the image index (see Tools… Data Management… Cookbook tab…) seems to fix the problem.
