I find that keywords consistently dissappear from the the keyword field. This also happens in other fields where it’s possible to add phrases such as the credit and copyright fields. This has consistently happened thru various versions of the software. I’m up to date version wise using a Macbook Pro. Any advice about this?

What kind of file types are they?  Are the files viewed/edited with any other software besides Photo Mechanic?

Do you have a specific file you can send me so I can look inside it with a hex editor?

I have never heard of this problem before.

I'm not referring to the words from within the files dissapearing. I'm referring to the lists that have been created within PM itself, in the drop down menus associated with various fields like "object" or "keyword". I've "added" a word or phrase to this list in the past and then found that it's dissapeared from that list later on.

I see. Well if you can tell me how to reproduce the problem then I'd be happy to try and fix it.  I have never heard of that problem before.

Yeah, I don't really know what brings it up. It seems to happen after crashes but I'm not really sure how to reproduce it.

That would do it.  The preferences aren't saved until quit.
