@stefankeidel Hi again. I looked into the UI property for Object editor and Object info screen and cannot find anything related to locale. Also I as I mentioned above, the title field in Object info used to display "Title" as label. After entering a value in alternate label, the label changed "Preferred label" and removing the value I entered doesn't change anything. It seems it's stuck to "Preferred label" as the label. Any thoughts on this? thank you very much

I still think your UI locale might be different than the locale you're using for cataloguing
Try to set them to the same and see what happens
The default UI locale is set in setup.php but each user can override the setting under Manage > My Preferences

I'm curious about how CA works as an internal database (or if it does)?
Is it something that must be "displayed" (so to speak) or is it a system that can be run within the company & privately? It will be utilized for the cataloging of cultural materials & so we would like to be able to have all the features (photo, etc) that CA seems to have.

I am running the program only on our internal network, at the moment.
In order to allow people to access the program, I just give users the IP number in the network

And there are no problems? Everyone is able to access the content?

The curtor had some issues, but that was more due to the network not set up properly
now that problem has been fixed, he just opens up the bookmark
(the problem with the network was having multiple wireless routers in the system, but being improperly linked)

how often do people generally need to rely on CA's consulting services? They really want to be able to be independent with this.
