[Digikam-users] tooltip tag order, image tag display

Hmm, programming. Does this mean I should file a feature request?

When looking at the image metadata I see that digiKam fills in quite a
few different metadata fields. IPTC Keywords and XMP Subject both just
show the actual "last tag" rather than the whole tag tree. Whereas XMP
Tags List and Hierarchical Subject show the entire tag tree.

At present, sometimes on the tooltip the whole tag tree is show, and
sometimes just the actual keyword. I don't see any pattern to when the
tooltip shows just the keyword, and when it shows the entire

It would be nice to have the option of just showing the keyword,
especially for those of us (I know I'm not the only one) who use
rather long hierarchies.

Kind regards,
Elle Stone
