Description won't save if unchanged

Post by harsh » Sun Aug 25, 2013 4:58 pm

When editing the description for multiple of files/pictures, the description won't be applied if it isn't changed from the existing description of the file that you're copying from.

I expected that if you wanted to apply a description of one file to a group of files you would choose that description using the left or right arrows under the thumbnail in the dialog and click the "Write all selected" button but if you don't change the existing description, it won't actually update the descriptions. Even if I edit the description and undo the edit, the descriptions don't get updated so the software must have decided that I wasn't really changing any of the descriptions so it didn't bother updating any of them.

In my quite possibly twisted opinion, Write all should always work in the same way. As it is, the Write all command is ignored under this specific condition.

I can see where mistakes on the part of the user could be a disaster, but carelessness should have consequences. :twisted:
