yes, it miss boolean flag to toggle on/off template informations, as
into LightRoom. I plan to implement this stuff before 1.0.0


For the bug, something is wrong in another place, it's not a Template
problem as well. Template do not have caption info.

In theory, if you change tags of images, captions is not changed. This
must be the same with template.


i think we have a little problem in MetadataHub...
