Edit XMP many fields are not saving

Post by FKCapitalism2 »

Inside Metadata > Edit XMP window many fields are not saving.

Keywords tab is broken, not saving keywords, keywords not add with hierarchy if use | character.

Origin tab following fields marked red are not saving.

However it does save to image metadata, its just this fields not show afterwards in XnViewMP and don't load if using Update catalog from files

Code: Select all

IPTC Contact tab - no fields are saving.

IPTC Extensions tab following fields marked red are not saving.

Image

XMP FWC tab - no fields are saving.



Options tab Mode drop-down makes no difference, both XMP & IPTC are written regardless of selection.

There is no XMP companion XnViewMP writes straight to the .arw file regardless of options i select.

File i tested on https://www.upload.ee/files/15772839/_DSC0001.zip.html

I don't understand what you mean.



Regarding Origin tab fields i said are missing are written inside .arw file, however they are not displaying when i open back Metadata > Edit XMP

Image


They saved to this fields inside .arw file

Image

and displayed in Info panel IPTC tab.

Image


which is fine with me i just want to see them displayed when i go back to Metadata > Edit XMP.

Also please note Options tab Mode drop-down makes no difference, is it supposed to create .xmp sidecar when "XMP" option selected?

I tested both options and it just writes both XMP & IPTC fields into ARW file regardless of selected option.

ExifTool seems to update only IPTC/Urgency and not XMP:Urgency

No, it's to sync between IPTC and XMP metadatas (XMP can be embedded or external .xmp)
