Storyboard Mode and Timeline Mode

Hello.  I am using Magix Movie Edit Pro 16 HD.  I am trying to create a video slideshow with JPEG pictures.  For some reason the storyboard mode will not come up; I need this for the editing process.  I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software and continue to have the same problem.  Could someone help me if you have experienced this problem before or if you know what's wrong?  If possible could you please list the steps.  Thank you.  

OS:  Windows 7

I'll start by saying I can't understand why storyboard mode will not initiate - also it's been a few years since I've used MEP16 but as I remeber the interface hasn't changed much.

An obvious question and I'm sorry to ask it but you are clicking on the story board icon above left of the arranger?

Uninstalling and reinstalling sort out the operating files but in my experience doesn't reset the configuration settings.

You can try a reset of settings - in the menu at the top of the screen go to "file/settings/reset program settings to default". This will ask if you really want to do it. If you do it will reset to default (in MEP2013 it saves the INI file as a BAK file should you want to restore it, can't remember if it does in MEP16). If you have any customised settings, it may be worth noting them before you reset.

All I can think of I'm afraid.


ps - on my system the settings file is "C:\Users\YOUR NAME\AppData\Roaming\MAGIX\Movie Edit Pro WHATEVER\Videodeluxe.ini" This is where all your activity in MEP is stored - names of folders and videos etc. - for your history.

Are all of your JPEG files on track number 1?  If they are not, when you switch to Storyboard mode, or even Scene overview, you won't see anything.  Or is it that you just can't even get the Storyboard mode to come up with no content?
