  1. Thanks for the link. I tried them all but the folders still show as Read Only (even after a reboot), however, I can now write keywords out ok which is good when I run it as my normal user. I'll have to keep an eye on it and do some more research to see why the directories are remaining as "Read Only".
  2. The actual jpg files are not read only but the directories are. The Daminion catalog is in a Read Only directory. I copied all the photos off a USB drive. Not sure why Windows won't let me change them all to normal directories. I'll have to read up on how to make them all normal directories as each time I set them back to normal they stay as read only.
  3. I ran Daminion as administrator and it then worked fine. I could write the tags/keywords ok. I then checked the file permissions and found that the directories were all Read Only! I tried to change them back to normal but even as the administrator this didn't work. I'm now trying to work out why Window 10 has done this. I then tried to write out all 40,000 tags, just in case there are some unwritten, and I got this error message. I did write out to 3,000 photos and this worked. Maybe there was just too many writes to the entire catalog. //See the end of this message for details on invokin
  4. Coincidentally, I made changes this morning as advised by Daria but for another problem. I doubt it would cause a problem? 1. C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Daminion Software\Daminion\1.0 2. Open the file "Settings.xml" 3. Find the string "<setting name="RestoreSorting" serializeAs="String"> " 4. You need to edit this string to get the following result: <setting name="RestoreSorting" serializeAs="String"> <value>True</value> </setting> 5. Save changes 6. Restart Daminion. The sorting order will be preserved between sessions now.
  5. Nothing in the log in here, 0 bytes in size. I checked writing the keyword on two different jpgs. An old one from a Canon camera and one from my Pixel 3 phone. I had the same problem on both. The file is not read only or hidden. I can write to it with other DAM software.
  6. Daminion 6.8 standalone on Windows 10 latest.
  7. Yes I've done that as well using the read and write under the Sync drop down menu. It is quite puzzling. I've tried it on different jpg photos as well and get the same problem. I can write keywords/tags using other software and read it with Daminion. I just can't get writes to the jpg with Daminion. It worked in the past but I haven't don't recently with Daminion.
  8. I write the keyword, save it or sync it, then read it back again from the file. I first noticed it after geotagging files and then checking them in another program and I was puzzled why they didn't show up. Further investigating revealed that keywords weren't saving either. I've rebooted and tried a few things. If I restart Daminion it shows them as there but if I read the metadata from the file they disappear 😞
  9. I've just discovered that keywords, and geotags, are not being written to the jpg metadata. I hit the save (write to file) and it looks like it has saved but when I read from file the keyword disappears. I can write tags with other software and they read ok with Daminion 6.8. I'm not seeing any errors.
  10. But if you have 2 folders selected, it doesn't seem to zoom to those two areas. You have manually zoom out to get both areas on the map. This can take quite a bit of time if you are checking your geotags for accuracy 😞
  11. Is it possible to show all the photos, that are geotagged, on a map from the selected folder?
  12. Ok, that isn't too bad of an idea as you can pull the window up and down quicker than you can dock it each time. Thanks for the tip.
  13. It would be great if you could view photos in a new window such that you could easily switch between the normal Daminion window and the map window, via ALT TAB. At the moment you can either have a small docked window (which takes up your space) or a large window where you can't easily switch back to the normal Daminion window.
