Hi,

I am relatively new to CaptureOne Pro 12, and have run into a problem. As I have gone through a catalog I have added certain IPTC metadata (contact and copyright ownership information, Headline and Description, and Keywords.  After I finished working yesterday, I shut down C1P. When I came back today , none of the metadata I added is there.

Is there a step have I missed? Am I wrong in  assuming that the program would be automatically saving the information but apparently either I have done something wrong (and I strongly suspect this is a case of user error or lack of understanding) or there is a bug.

Using Capture One Pro 12 in macOS Mojave, or a 27" R5K Retina iMAc.

When I saw this post a few days back, I decided to pay close attention to see whether I could recreate the behavior you saw. After processing a fair number of images in both sessions and a catalog in C1 12 on a couple of different Macs, I've not been able to recreate a scenario where it doesn't properly save changes to IPTC metadata. The application saves the changes/additions every time. Is this something you've been able to repeat?

Cheers,
Ray

Yes, it is still happening.

Just in case, check your preferences about how to handle metadata (as shown in the attached imae). What you describe is not normal, as C1 writes the IPTC values to the C1 catalog (even sessions have their own catalog).
