IPTC editing: Groupbox for options, Wording

Post by helmut »

When editing IPTC data of multiple files, in the "Edit IPTC data" dialog there are options for overwriting or combining new IPTC data with existing data.

These options should be grouped in a group box with a meaningful title. Also sometimes the data is called "value", then "field". This would make things much clearer and more intuitive.

Current:

Code: Select all

[x] Keep original date/time attributes

[x] Merge with existing value (Keywords & Supplemental Categories")
[x] Leave existing field if new entry is empty
[x] Only replace existing fields that are empty
Suggestion:

Code: Select all

[x] Keep original date/time attributes

+-- Writing options --------------------------------------------------------------+
|(o) Combine new & current values                                                 |
|    [x] Add new values to current value ('Keywords' & 'Supplemental Categories') |
|    [x] Keep current value if new value is empty                                 |
|    [x] Replace only if current value is empty                                   |
|                                                                                 |
|( ) Overwrite all current values                                                 |

I think suggested radio buttons are a little more clear.
