Version 6.0 Build 5378 (11/19/2020)

 ● Added: Text exporter now adds a .txt extension to user-provided filename if it doesn’t have an extension.
 ● Added: XMP is now maintained internally within HIF files without the need to create XMP sidecar files. This prevents problems with a shared XMP sidecar file between a HIF file and an associated RAW file (e.g. ARW or CR3).
 ● Fixed: Applying rotation to photos that have been soft-rotated no longer adds a crop to the image if it did not already have one.
 ● Fixed: faulty full constrained crops on large images whose dimensions are the same ratio as the constrained crop.
 ● Fixed: Contact Sheet loses selection after deleting an image in the Preview window.
 ● Fixed: Reverse sort checkbox not checked when opening new Contact Sheet and preference default is set to reverse the sort.

 ● Added: Confirmation when moving a folder to the Trash.
 ● Fixed: Selection count now correct when inverting the selection (Edit->Select others).
 ● Fixed: Choosing ‘Text only’ view of the Preview window’s toolbar not possible, promoted to Icons and Text. If you want to hide the toolbar instead, use the View->Hide Toolbar
command. To bring it back, use the View->Show Toolbar command.
 ● Fixed: Dragging and dropping an image onto a contact sheet to move or copy the image no longer allows moving or copying the image if the image being moved (from the drag) is at the same location.

 ● Fixed: Structured Keywords now draws Categories and Synonyms in different colors from Keywords. Synonyms are also drawn in boldface style.
