There's the scripts menu in Lightroom Classic 9 (in the menu bar next to the Help menu). So far I've found out that these scripts have the ending .lua. For a long time I have wanted a script that copies selected metadata (e.g. from the fields date, camera model, dimensions, GPS, etc.) into the field “Caption”. My system is macOS 10.15.

A Plugin would suit your purpose!  See the 'Caption Builder' tab -

And, yes, a "Scripts" menu is possible in Windows Lightroom-Classic-

AFAIK there is no Scripts menu on Windows in LrC 9.x.

So this must be a Mac thing and a Mac scripts thing, Not LrC.

 

Show us a screen shot of what you are asking about.

...you can also use it on Windows...  you have to create a script folder, if not!

(see Adobe help site for another script...)

Hi WobertC,

thank you very very much.

This is the one I'm looking for. And everything works absolutely fantastic...!

Because I'm working 75% on the lightroom image management, I was looking for this tool! Caption builder, also Search and Replace, Add etc. are all helpful.

regards
