I am trying to edit some assignments in Lightroom mobile on an iPad. I don’t see a way to apply metadata info like captions to multiple images at once.
I can copy and paste one by one , but that’s too time consuming. I see the option on my android phone. The iPad version of Lightroom seems more confusing than the android. I am trying to figure out if I can realistically leave the MacBook behind for editing on location. But the mobile iPad Lightroom seems a bit cumbersome.
I am baffled that such an important feature for a working feature is not readily available or easy to find.
Adding metadata to multiple images in Lightroom mobile is not possible as of now. However, it would really help if you can share your feedback on our community:

"I am surprised the iPad version is so behind."
I don't think it's very much behind (if at all). The iOS and Android versions are developed by different teams (obviously) and the development paths will be influenced by the different OS versions such that not every new feature gets to both platforms at the same time. There are features in iOS which aren't in Android, and vice versa, which can be a little confusing for users of both types of mobile devices, but hopefully feature parity is still an Adobe objective.
It has been almost a year since I posted the issue about lack of captioning support for multiple photos on the iPad. Nothing new, available on Android not on iPad/iOS.
It really is an handicap for photographers who need to edit and submit captioned images to their clients, whetehr agencies or publications.
It is such a basic professional requirement, why is it available on Android and not on the iPad/iOS?
