Metadata editor duplicates files

Post by jolugaju » Tue Oct 16, 2018 8:33 pm


I'm using the metadata editor.
I selected many files before entering the editor.
I'm working with raw files (Nikon nef files).
I'm writting Caption & Credit tags.
If I clic on "Write to all files" the program duplicates all files.

For example, I have 01.nef, 02.nef, 03.nef ...
After clicking that button I have those files and 01.nef_original, 02.nef_original, 03.nef_original
I don't want that.

What can I do to NOT create new files?

Thanks in advance!
