Including XMP Description in fullscreen info

Post by cicciobello »

I would like to use only XMP sidecar for descriptions and rating.
I would like not use IPTC: rewrite every time 800MB-2GB TIFF file on NAS is long time. :-(
I have in sidecar correctly inserted dc:description (Tools > Metadata > Edit XMP).

Question: Is it possible to view in fullscreen info the text from XMP sidecar dc:description?

This is possible for {IPTC:Caption}, but {XMP:something} don't works.

My workaround: insert dc:description in XMP sidecar companion file.
Copy/Paste this text in Description in "descript.ion" file.
Insert {Annotation} in fullscreen info.
But this is a wrong work. :-(

Currently {XMP:xxx} can be used in Batch rename/convert, Transfert but not yet for displaying

Well, then I use XMP companion through Edit->XMP, then copy Description to "descript.ion" file and view this data in fullscreen with {Annotation}.
A little confusing, time-wast solution and an error-factory, but this is the only way. :-(

Yeah. With {XMP:description} I can insert in fullscreen-info the data from XMP companion.

But... I have now a problem in fullscreen-info, not present in 0.99.6 x64.
Some spaces appears somewhere.

Rel. 0.99.6 x64:

Rel. 0.99.7 x64:

This is the first line:

Code: Select all

<font color="LightBlue"> <b> [{File Index}] </b> </font> <font color="Yellow"> {Filename With Ext} </font> <font color="LightGreen"> ({Zoom}%) </font> <font color="Grey"> {Directory} </font>

Ah, OK. :-)
I left spaces for better readability. Now, I strip all unnecessary spaces and now it is OK. Thank you.
