[Help] Metadatas improving!

Post by sebastienperret »

Hello dear dev community,

I have a dream to improve my flow with a magic trick:
>Drag&drop picture from Bridge to Indesign and generate live caption (Indesign) to populate this picture with customs metadatas.
Does my dream is possible?!
I think so, I mopped the web and find interesting ways to create custom metadatas panels.

I'm ok with Bridge to create custom metadata field like this:

Code: Select all

<!-- simple properties -->
<xmp_property name="Text" category="external" label="$$$/Custom/Panel/Document Title=Property 1 Name:" type="text"/>
<xmp_property name="Text2" category="external" label="$$$/Custom/Panel/Credit=Property 2 Name:" type="text"/>
<xmp_property name="Text4" category="external" label="$$$/Custom/Panel/Credit=Epoque de floraison "03>07":" type="text"/>
<xmp_property name="Text5" category="external" label="$$$/Custom/Panel/Credit=Couleur de floraison:" type="text"/>
</xmp_schema>
I managed to create my custom panel available in XMP Bridge dialog box rater than Indesign.
I managed to assign metadatas in custom field on pictures.
But at this point I'm a bit confused.

I block at Indesign caption setup box level : I can't select any custom metadatas. Only "classical" fields are available.

Hope I was clear enough,
Thank you to improved me!

I just using superb custom panel for an efficient setup.

Works perfect in Bridge.
The problem is in Indesign : Unable to extend metadatas field in caption setup.
Quite ridiculous...
Any idea?
