Editing metadata

This topic describes how to use the metadata editor.

Using the editor toolbar

The top tool bar provides the main editor actions:


From left to right:

  • Set metadata categories

  • Set metadata group

  • Advanced features (eg. versioning)

  • Validate to run metadata validation

  • Cancel to cancel all changes made since the beginning of the editing session

  • Save & Close to save and close the editor

  • Save to save the metadata or the template. The drowdown also allows to set if the edits are minor or not (ie. the change date of the metadata will not be updated if case of minor edits).

  • Change view mode for the editor form, enable tooltips or switch to advanced editor mode

Populating fields

Depending on the view configuration (see Customizing editor), editors can reorder elements using up and down controls.
