            Bug ID: 311005
          Severity: normal
           Version: 2.9.0
          Priority: NOR
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
           Summary: "Edit all Metadata" allows to edit unchecked fields -
                    results in data loss
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Linux
          Reporter: schuschq at gmail.com
          Hardware: openSUSE RPMs
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
         Component: libkipi
           Product: digikam

In "Edit XMP" editing unchecked "[ ] Caption" field shouldn't be possible -
same with other fields like "[ ] Copyright"; editing without checking the box
results in unnoticed data loss;

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mark at least one image in thumbnails window.
2. choose "Image > Metadata > Edit all Metadata ..."
3. choose "Edit XMP"
4. if the field "Caption" isn't checked (default here), you can nevertheless
edit the field ...
Actual Results:  
you save the metadata and think everything is ok. Next time you open the file,
the metadata you added are not there ...

Expected Results:  
one shouldn't be able to edit the field at all without checking the box!

this applies to more fields (at least "Copyright" on the same page) 

it caused me several time to loose work of at least an hour together
