I've told Jesper that I'm losing dates from my images if I change the
date or change anything for a single image (Ctrl - 1), If you have the
same problem (check Maintainance - Display Images With Incomplete
Dates - Search for images with missing date and time), you can be

This is what happens here:

I did the same. There are no new dates in the images when I go to see
them with Ctrl+1 but only the old ones. And when I've scrolled through
these three images and scroll back from the last to the first - the
dates are gone! No more dates, the date fields are empty.

But doesn't for me - when I press Ctrl-1 again, the date's gone.

As far as I found out, changing anything in a single image makes the
dates disappear but tagging more than one image at a time (Ctrl-2)
keeps the dates - but doesn't either change them, even if I wanted..
This way I have now some images without dates (well, readable from
EXIF's but..) since I've tagged some individual files.

No-one has confirmed this??
