Hi remco

thanks for your reply
I have checked  that I only use x-defaults
I have added a caption "Audierne" (with x-defaults)  from the caption 
menu (right sidebar) to be the original caption
Now I have added a new caption ("test")  from the assign caption in the 
BQM using x-defaults , the overwrite option is not set , and the result 
I see in the caption of the generated file is "tset" for x-defaults and 
the original one is also missing

strange isn't it ?
