File browser tooltips

Post by cicciobello »

With Rel. 0.99.7 {XMP:Description} in fullscreen info works OK.

But {XMP:Description} in file browser tooltip don't work.

I use this tooltip text:

Code: Select all

<font size="4"><b>{Filename With Ext}</b></font>
<font size="4"><b>{Width} x {Height} @ {DPI} spi ({Size KB} kb)</b></font>
<font size="4">{XMP:Description}</font>
Otherwise, {Annotation} works well! Is this a bug or not? :-/

MP 0.99.7 x64 (Win 10)
templateXMP=true

- Fullscreen info
{XMP:Description}: Working OK
{Annotation}: Working OK

- Browser tooltip
{XMP:Description}: Don't work (normal or fresh install, with/without catalog)
{Annotation}: Working OK, but you can see new/updated text _only_ from next MP restart (why?)

i can't reproduce, you have the problem with all XMP fields or only Description?

Yes, all XMP field from XMP companion files.
In one case I have found strange behaviour: {XMP:Description} pick (old) IPTC:Description (?), but in other case this don't occour.

0. Start from scratch
1. Changed companion from filename.ext.xmp to filename.xmp
2. Delete file's all internal IPTC/XMP content
3. Exit from MP
4. Delete *.db
5. Restart MP

Result: {Annotation} works after MP restart, {XMP:*} don't works anymore. :-(
This is related to browser tooltips only (fullscreen info works OK).
I do this with my working portable MP and a fresh MP (0.99.7 x64, Win 10).
