Request for Native MetaData Input/Read in Affinity Applications

Recommended Posts

I know this has been repeatedly discussed in these forums but I have yet to find where there is an indication that the ability to edit and read metadata within the Affinity applications is coming in the near future -- I apologize if I've overlooked anything that addresses this but I'm a bit pressed for time on the matter.

I work for an organization that tightly locks down what applications are allowed on our systems. We have approval for 16 Photo and 8  Designer licenses on our R&D network but I'm trying to get them approved for use with our much larger NMCI network so they are more widely available (i.e. I want to be able to use them at work instead of Illustrator and Photoshop). When discussing this with the person who administers software over in our graphic design group, I got this as part of their response:

" It's been tough getting anyone to really try it though.  ... Serif would have to add the metadata input and read capabilities before we could use it though.  We're relying heavily on metadata searches to find files on the xsan."

From what I've seen and heard over the years this capability is pretty much an expectation that is taken for granted among many graphics professionals so the response really didn't surprise me.

I've forwarded them links to some of the related metadata topics in this forum that suggest workarounds but I hope that this capability is coming soon.
