Please post one of your images along with the XMP sidecar file (if any.)

Thanks,

Armin,

Thanks, but I need an actual image and XMP sidecar file (if any), not a screenshot.

Can I send the image with the additional XMP file with Wetransfer? However, I need their mail address for this.

Click on my name to the left of this post and send me a personal message with the link.

Thanks,

Armin,

Thanks, I got the file.  The keywords field does not have the word "makro" in it, only "Andere Stichw√∂rter".  I noticed you sent me the metadata for a different image than the one you showed the Metadata Info for.  It was 20-02-07-0343.xmp, not 20-02-07-0340.xmp.

Hello Kirk,
Sorry, I manually freed every single image from this folder from the keywords over the weekend. I send you the link of the image with the end number 0323 and the corresponding XMP file with the keyword "blumen". Even there I can't delete the keyword with "Find and replace".

Hmm.  It works for me on both macOS and Windows 10.  See attached photo.

Kirk, I want to thank you for the effort. I have now gone to the trouble of deleting all the keywords using Adobe Bridge and am now building a new structure.
