Add in the Image Tab the possibility to edit the IPTC/XMP

We cannot edit the metadata of the open image.

When we double click on a thumb the image is opened in a new tab. We cannot edit / view the manually entered metadata there by using the IPTC/XMP window (Ctrl+I - also, be sure to put it in a menu)

Bump!

In 0.84 still only the old Edit | Set Comment is available...

It is pretty troublesome to close an image just to edit its metadata.

I've been using XnViewMP for a few years now and I'd love to see this feature implemented. Please! It would be so useful. All the functionality is there already, just needs to be accessible from the open image.

(And I still think that unless your changes will be thrown away when you press Cancel, a dialog box should have a Close button instead. :P )
