  1. Thanks for this Mike. I wish I’d tried this approach myself. I encountered the ‘lost labels’ when I created a set and my work around was a lot more convoluted. I when back to the original label set, created a collection from the labelled items. Changed the label set and then applied the new labels to the collection contents. If I’d seen this tip I would have saved a bit of head scratching and time thinking of a solution. Keep up the good work.
