Does other info like the keywords show up as expected when you go through Lightroom?  Is it only the caption info that is missing?

Not sure, I only did one & deleted it, maybe no keywords either as the IPTC doesn't show when I import to LR !

Are you forcing Lr to read the metadata from the changed files?  If not, then Lr uses the metadata in its database instead of the metadata in the files themselves.

From Lr's Metadata menu, "Read Metadata from Files" (I think, it may be named slightly different from this.)

HTH,

That would be nice wouldn't it?  Please put in a feature request with Adobe's Lr team.
