If the icon in the upper-left corner of the Metadata panel doesn't look like this:

then click it until it does look like that.

That icon controls a filter for showing / hiding fields that can not be changed (such as camera model). That should not apply to Title, which the OP can see and enter text into, but says the entry is not applying.

 

Is this query perhaps about entering metadata across multiple images? Behaviour and interface have changed for that. To apply a given Title to five images, once all five are highlighted, the switch Target Photo / Selected Photos sets metadata entry to multiple image mode - otherwise only the active image will receive the change

"That should not apply to Title, which the OP can see and enter text into, but says the entry is not applying."

 

This is the way the Edit Only view is defined to work. From the Lightroom Queen's release notes for 11.0:

 

"If you click the icon in the top left corner of the Metadata panel, you switch to Edit Only view. It only shows fields that can be edited, and it doesn’t show any of the existing metadata, so it’s faster." [Emphasis added]

 

I can see how displaying only editable fields could help some infrequent high-volume-editing use cases, but the justification for not showing existing metadata to make it go faster is strange, since 11.0 also introduced a new cache file (Helper.lrdata) for speeding the display of metadata.

I see, thanks. The only time I typically use this dialog is when there has been no such prior entry so I hadn't appreciated the significance of blank fields being presented for typing into. I do agree that failing to recall and present any prior entry within these fields, is an odd design decision. Perhaps more useful might have been a mode that shows / permits bulk entry into only those fields that are both editable AND currently empty?

 

To reassure the OP: metadata entry is only appearing to vanish in this special context. It does in fact get registered; as can be seen elsewhere - as well as, when this button is set to the other working mode (with eye icon).

 

In usability terms it is not great IMO for an action to succeed, but appear as if it has been unsuccessful.
