multi-selection settings for Edit IPTC... and Edit XMP...

Post by herb »

Hello Pierre,

I am working on a Windows 10 system with version 0.98.2.

The dialog "Edit IPTC..." has a tab for options in case of multi-selection.
These 3 multi-selection settings are only taken into account in case of
- more than 1 file is selected and
- user clicks on "write to all files".

Why are they not also taken into account in case of
- only 1 file is selected - they are disabled in this case - or
- user clicks on "write".

This would be very very helpful for the following scenario:
- select 1 file
- load values of a predefined template file for IPTC metadata.
- click on write (and the multi-selection settings are taken into account).

Yes, this can also be achieved in case of one target file is selected together with a dummy-file.

And dialog "Edit XMP..." should also behave as "Edit IPTC..." as described above.

Thanks in advance
