0.94.2: Metadata is not saved

Post by cicciobello » Mon Jan 06, 2020 6:21 pm

XnView MP 0.94.2 x64
MS Windows 7 SP1 x64 (tested on 2 different PC)

IPTC/XMP Caption (sometime) is not saved (80% times)

To reproduce:
Select 2 files
[Tools] [Metadata] [Edit IPTC/XMP...]
Modify Caption of 1st file
Press [Write]
Move to 2nd file using ">" button
Modify caption of 2nd file
Press [Write]
Move to 1st file using "<" button
Caption in 1st file sometime is NOT saved
Move to 2nd file using "<" button
Caption in 2nd file sometime is NOT saved

Actual behaviour (bug): Caption sometime is not saved

Expected behaviour: Caption is saved every time I press [Write]

XnView: XnView MP Linux, Version 0.94.3 64bits (Jan 14 2020)
OS: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS

I have this problem too, consistently reproducable just as cicciobello sets it out.

I just took the update to 0.94.3 (I might have missed the 0.94.2 release?), and suddenly, the caption editing feature, under [Edit IPTC/XMP] which I use all the time isn't working. Usually I'd just use the < or > button to move to the next image and that writes the caption, but for the first time it's stopped working even if I actually click on the Write button too.

It used to not work if I opened a single image and tried to use the new [Edit IPTC/XMP] button in that view, and it still doesn't, but I can live with that, not being able to edit captions at all is seriously hampering my photo processing workflow. :(
