I would like some help with expressing the use of the preposition "to show" followed by the preposition "at this time". In the sentence below, is my use of « à » correct in both cases? (Any other corrections are appreciated.)

Vous n'avez pas de Favoris à montrer à ce moment.

    Je suis tenté de répondre : si vous n'avez pas de favoris, ne vous rasez pas les joues et ils repousseront. :D

    Are you talking about Favorites like in the context of a Web browser? Then, is your sentence a message that would be displayed if a user's list of favorites was empty?

    I'm afraid that Vous n'avez pas de favoris à montrer is too much of a literal translation, and unnatural in French. An idiomatic way to express the idea would be, Votre liste de favoris est présentement vide.

    Thanks, ;

    Yes, you're right about the application. I'll use your idiomatic expression

    « Votre liste de favoris est présentement vide. »
