Delimiter set to / (slash) in preferences, but appearing as . (period) when saved to file

Post by barneagle »

After I recently upgraded to version 6 Preferences > Synchronize Settings still show / (slash) as the delimiter for delimited keywords. However, when I save the keywords to the photo files they are delimited by . (period, or full stop). As a result other programs see them as different keywords from older photos with the same label. (For example, an older photo might be tagged France/Paris/Louvre whereas one that's saved now would be France.Paris.Louvre) How can I get Photo Supreme to revert to using / ?

(I know that delimited keywords are deprecated, but when I save a photo with hierarchical but undelimited keywords other apps that I use don't see the hierarchy, only the leaves. Presumably this is because they read from the XMP-dc Subject tag. Hence I think I need to continue to use delimited keywords.)
