[Digikam-users] Metadata not written to file (correct option set)

I never trie to apply a template when importing images, but I think 
anyway applying a template should work any time.
For example I wanted to apply a set of tags to old pictures, then I 
can't use this function yet.

May be you could try to apply a template to a test image and see if this 
works ? This would allow to decide if this bug is specific to my setup 
or if this is digikam.

Thanks for your help.
