Metadata Set
« on: November 20, 2020, 01:46:39 pm »

Is there a way I can create a custom metadata set? I use only a few of the metadata fields and they are in various metadata sets...which forces me to switch back and forth between metadata sets if I want to see or edit all my metadata. I would like to create a set that has all and only the metadata I use. Note that I am talking about the sets themselves and not metadata presets.

What exactly do you mean by "metadata set". That term isn't used in LR.

All the fields in the Library Metadata Filter? .. ie a subset of all available?

Here is a quote from the LR user manual in the section Metadata basic and Actions:

'Lightroom has premade sets that display different combinations of metadata'.

I am referring the 'premade data sets' ie Exif, IPTC, local etc. in the metadata panel in the library module.

I want to combine various fields from these sets into a custom set.

OK, it sounds like you mean the different views of the Metadata Panel and I do now see "Metadata Set" is the tooltip for the little dropdown list at the top of the panel. "Metadata Field Lists" is the official name in the application support folder, while Jeffrey Friedl calls them "Metadata-Viewer Presets". I'm not sure I have a name for them!

You can add your own custom views or groupings by editing a text file. So in the attached screenshot you can see one I created and put in this location.
\Lightroom application support\Metadata Field Lists\Location reversed.lrtemplate

However, while I don't use Jeffrey's plugin myself I think you will find that this does what you want http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/metadata-presets
