            Bug ID: 310977
          Severity: normal
           Version: 2.9.0
          Priority: NOR
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
           Summary: applying data (exif, iptc, xmp caption) in "Edit all
                    Metadata" window inconsistent
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Linux
          Reporter: schuschq at gmail.com
          Hardware: openSUSE RPMs
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
         Component: libkipi
           Product: digikam

inconsistent handling of saving data in caption fields, see description 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mark some (example: 3) images in thumbnails window. The images must not have
an XMP Caption!
2. choose "Image > Metadata > Edit all Metadata ..."
3. choose "Edit XMP > Content" (you are editing the first image)
4. check "Caption" box (all sync buttons not checked) - (remember: xmp caption
data must be empty for all images!)
5. enter Caption (example: "blabla")
6. Apply data (only the first image edited)
7. now you can find "blabla" also in the xmp caption fields of the other images
(but it was not entered there)

Actual Results:  
if there is nothing written in this field prior to the first edit, the edit is
written to all images with an empty field (didn't try it with mixed empty / not
empty fields).

But, if the images do have a xmp caption - this one is not overwritten. 

 (I think this happens with other fields too, but I'm not sure)

Expected Results:  
as long as I don't check a box like "[x] use information for all images", I
don't expect the data to be taken for all images ...

If i've opened 3 images with empty exif, iptc and xmp caption fields
and I add an exif-caption for the first image (example "schubidu"), and check
"Sync XMP caption", "Sync IPTC caption" and apply this
- I get the first image with exif-caption, iptc-caption, xmp-caption (all with
"schubidu"), second and third image only with xmp-caption ... it should at
least be consistent.
