Metadata is not saved in single-image mode

If you save metadata in the single image view mode, they are not actually saved.
If you go to the browser mode, you can see that the metadata is not preserved thereafter.

Thank.
So in this mode, it is better not for me to make an IPTc, since then the modification date of the file will change.

Pierre, is there a quality loss when saving image this way ?
so, it would be better to avoid using this method ..

you recompress the data, so for JPEG yes.
Or perhaps i can a 'Write' button?
