I have lost all my structured keywords and info
« on: February 23, 2023, 11:21:29 AM »
 When I hit command I on my Mac the Metadata(IPTC) Template appears and in the past when I clicked on Keywords, Structured Keywords  a whole list of folders with keywords appeared and also in Cities a list appeared with about 8 cities. Now I have nothing.  I am using Ventura 13.2.1 with P/M 6
Can someone help?

I am not sure why your structured keywords list would be missing. Are you missing any other saved preferences such as metadata snapshots, Ingest settings, or options you have set in Photo Mechanic's Preferences window?

If you make regular backups of your computer, your structured keywords are located at the following path:

~/Library/Preferences/com.camerabits.PhotoMechanic/StructuredKeywords_UTF-8.txt

Restore that file from your back up (best to make sure Photo Mechanic is not running at the time) and it will restore your keywords.
