    Interesting Oddity

    As they say, LrC is a complex piece of code and as such sometimes it trips over itself. Not looking for "answers" or "suggestions" here as it fixed itself after a close and re-open of the program, but just thought this would amuse.

    KW information lost during Write/Read metadata operation

    Potential bug in Write and/or Read Metadata operation. It seems that if I Save metadata to files and then read it back something gets lost related to keywords in the process.
