Template - merge new with existing data?

Postby monitor » Mon Apr 10, 2017 8:06 pm

After my first few trials with templates, it looks like importing a template overwrites all data in the current set of IPTC data.

I had hoped to be able to have several template for various things, like common places, copyright by year, common data origins etc and then add them as needed, merging new data with any existing data fields.

Has anyone else run into this scenario and how do others handle this?
TIA

Where? In IPTC window?

This could be a very nice feature request: a new button for „Append...” rather than „Load...”

Yes, that would seem the best place for adding or merging such data.

I'll do just that :-)
