[Digikam-users] Templates for IPTC & XMP ?

Well I believe that we've gone through pretty much everything that I can think of to help.  I'm running 1.0.0 and the templates work fine with the exception of the copyright fields which for some reason always remain blank.  It's probably due to something I don't understand.

On my set up the metadata tab sometimes fails to display tags that I've added to an image.  You can see the tags in the tags/captions tab and in thumbnail of the image but not in the metadata tab unless I right click and apply the tag and then like a miracle it shows up.  Maybe it's some glitch about the tag in the image and not the database or vice versa.

Maybe someone else can help you out otherwise if the template feature is important enough to you you might want to try a reinstall of Digikam.

Good luck.
