SETTING UP
« on: February 02, 2024, 08:40:07 PM »
DECIDED TO DOWNGRADE TO VENTURA(MAC OS 13) to avoid any issues with PM+ & other 3rd party apps (Nisus writer Pro is one).  Now I have 2 issues:
#1 I need to find my IPTC keywords in my backup and don't know where they are stored. 
#2, I want to display +3 fields in my contact sheets. I have successfully added "Keywords," but can't figure out where or how to add "Descriptions"  If you could answer both Qs that would be a great help.

Jon,

1) If you have access to the old system, I suggest you export your preferences and then import them on the new OS install.

2) Use the {caption} variable, though they tend to be long and you're only going to see an excerpt of the beginning of the caption and the end of it.
