Question Regarding Keywords and Persons Shown: Use of Commas
« on: October 22, 2019, 10:13:18 AM »
I have a question regarding keywords and persons shown.
  - I've selected using a semicolon as a delimiter in Preferences,
  - In persons shown, I'm using the name format of Last, First
  - I only use structured keywords, an example is Flowers | Columbine, pink or Animals | Duck, Mallard

When I reloaded my catalog, all the items that had commas appeared in the IPTC browse panel as though the comma was the delimiter. Clicking on each one restored the list as though PM were re-indexing.

Q: Is it possible to use commas in this way, and

Q: If so, is it possible for PM to index the string including the comma?

Thanks,
-- Ken

Could you please post two screenshots, one showing what your metadata looks like in the Metadata (IPTC) Info dialog, and the other showing what it looks like in the Browse tree?  Use the 'Attachments and other options' link when you're composing your reply to this message and there you'll be able to upload your JPEG format screenshots.

Thanks,

Thanks, Kirk.

Attached are IPTC Preferences, The browse panel after a scan to catalog, the browse panel after clicking on each person's name, and an IPTC metadata panel.

Ken,

When you say:

the browse panel after clicking on each person's name

Does this mean that you're clicking on each name in the Browse panel and it spontaneously changes?

Thanks,

;)

We've identified the problem and have fixed it.  We're releasing a new PM6 build (which is taking up a lot of our time) but we may have time to get out a build between the betas this week.

Thanks,

Kirk,

With the new release today, this issue still exists. Same behavior. What can I send you?

Did you rescan all of your images?  The fix won't spontaneously address an existing catalog.

Kirk,

Yes. It's a small test group, created new catalog, scanned to catalog.
