IPTC keyword tags from categories

Post by antineff » Sun Oct 09, 2016 6:53 pm

When adding a keyword to the IPTC tag of a file, there is automatically created also a category entry for this. It would be nice to have it vice versa too. I understand that somtimes you don't want the category to become a IPTC keyword tag, but therfore a checkbox for switching the automatic feature on and off on the categories pane could be helpful.

At the moment I only can add a keyword using the IPTC dialog using Ctrl-I (but fortunately I can do it for all selected files at once):

Settings > Metadata >
check "Export DB Category to XMP Subject and IPTC Keyword"
check "Create IPTC data"
