Just try to download sample RW2 files on
And indeed, I can't set metadata with "edit metadata" tool located in
"element" menu like Rafael can't.
But, I succeed to set metadata for these file using the "legend" right side
tab. To do this for credit author copyright, it seems you have to create a
model of metadata (not needed for title, description and keywords), but, as
an alternative, you could consider to use this method waiting for a
solution to this bug.
