I still see these inconsistency here:

- assigning a tag by right clicking in the album view, inserts the keyword into IPTC, but it does *not* insert the copyright notes

- drag and drop a keyword from Tag Filters to an image in album view inserts *nothing* into IPTC

- assigning a tag by checking it in the Comments/Tags right side bar inserts keyword plus copyright/credits into IPTC (this is the expected behaviour)

In these examples the user always does the same: assigning a keyword to a picture, but he gets 3 different results in regard of IPTC. It is not transparent to the user why these differences exist.

So I still strongly recommend to harmonize the way data is added to IPTC, so that there is no difference regardless which method the user chooses. I think, as it is, it is confusing. 

It should also be visile somehow in the Metadata sidebar, if the actual file format can or cannot save tags/copyright... etc. into IPTC, as for example jpg versus tiff, while of course I wished, copyright could be saved into tiffs also, because this still is a very widely used format in printing. 

I also still whished that default photographer/credit/copyright are saved into IPTC (provided appropriate settings are checked) when saving a file with "save as".

kind regards
