Hi guys, reading the What's new popping up, I expected that to be better as in older versions but it isn't.
In media res:
OK, guys, that's sufficient of daily dose of rant 😉 I wish you merry stuff fixing.
Have a nice one,
You can change the label values in LrC to match Bridge.
Metadata > Color Label Set
Of course, there is still the language barrier, e.g. Rejected vs. Abgelehnt.
This will not give you any comfort, but the XMP specification has a very ambiguous definition for xmp:Label which does not assure interoperability:
"A word or short phrase that identifies a resource as a member of a user-defined collection."
This is odd because it specifies xmp:Rating precisely:
"A user-assigned rating for this file. The value shall be -1 or in the range [0..5], where -1 indicates “rejected” and 0 indicates “unrated”."
Your Answer doesnt answer the first question:
How to toggle caption in full screen?
In full screen preview, press "C" to see the filename, rating and label.
You can change the shortcut in Preferences > Keywboard shorts >
On the bottom left panel, scroll down to Slideshow/Full Screen Window
Scroll to Fullscreen Specific
[EDIT] I just remembered that your question was how to permanently enable captions in fullscreen. I don't think that is possible. You have to press "C" when you open fullscreen. At least the captions stay on as you move forwards or backwards between images.
@gregreser Hooray, switching that deleted/reset all color labeling of the whole catalog (150k images). Thanks you so much for your inexistent warning.
I have still no clue, why this ever was different. The XMP issue is a thing to be solved by the developers in the software itself.
PS: I have no clue why, but I can't reply directly to your anser containing the advice in screen shot attached
@Roland_Rick are you saying that changing that label preference in Lightroom actually deleted/reset the XMP label values in your files? They may not display the color you expect, but the original metadata should still be in the files.
I'm in LrC, so it's primary the database I rely to. Even if I use my computers all with English language settings (except for the keyboard, but that's another story and concerns Ps), Creative Cloud installed all apps first in German and even after manually switching to English (in LrC settings), the labelling sticks fixed to Rot/Gelb/Grün/Blau/Lila - the German version of Red/Yellow/Green/Blue/Purple. - As nice the A.I. functions are, if it comes to the basics, Adobe's software is incredibly ridiculous bad programmed, no word exists for it.
If you sell overpriced multi language software, this must be correctly covered by the software itself - that is covered by the course "software developpment 101". It can't be covered by XMP is kinda logical, there values should be integer indexes instead of plain text, those matched by the language settings of LrC/Bridge/Ps/etc. to the corresponding plain text value. That's also covered by the course "Software Development for Beginners 101".
So, I had to make my own preset to have the label colors back correctly. But that doesn't solve the problem as soon you collaborate in projects internationally and you exchange data Bridge/XMP based. ☹️
If I would be in lead of the Adobe software development, errors like that wouldn't exists. And yes, it's an error, software design error, not bugs. A bug is something like an accident happened. But that is basically worst software development style ever. Not sticking to any basic development rules.
I developped software between 1986 to 1999 (BIOS add ons for mouse and menus for international used DOS software plus the mathematical part, prior to a usable Windows version, later for Windows 3.x, first in with Turbo Pascal and later with Borland Pascal), when the engineers still were in lead of the project milestones. Never ever back then, we would have been releasing software having such trivial design errors causing those gigantic follow up problems. Nowadays, the milestones and decisions are made by clueless pea counters in suits and that's the problem.
But that's a problem everywhere - not only at Adobe and other software companies - and the reason why the planet is going down the drain.
