Minor Improvements

  • Added the ability to accelerate the previews of Jpeg2000 files
  • Optimized map engine for the web client with many pins – now it does not slow down the software
  • Added the ability to search by AI labels via ‘Quick Search’ and ‘Advanced Search’ in the desktop client
  • Added the ability to search by AI labels in ‘Everywhere’ in the web client
  • The forward and backward navigation on the timeline of the video in the web client has become smoother now

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the bug with the pop-up hints in the ‘Place’ tag in the web client
  • Fixed the bug when ‘Show All Items’ did not display all items in the catalog
  • Fixed the bug with embedding metadata to PDF. Please turn on the option ‘Alternative XMP’ updating method (not recommended, slow) via Daminion server administration panel > ‘Administration’ > ‘Preferences’ > ‘Writing Metadata’. Once activated, metadata will be written to the XMP metadata section
  • Fixed the bug with rendering of large PSD and PNG files
  • Fixed the bug when the tag presets in the ‘Tags’ and ‘Properties’ panel were removed (for an admin user) after using the option ‘Default View Settings’

  • Fixed the bug when unsynced tags were removed from the file when checking the file in (‘Version Control’ feature)
  • Fixed the bug when the expanded ‘Folders’ tag collapsed when creating a shared collection in the web client
  • Fixed the bug with a dropdown list in the search bar in German
  • Fixed the bug with tagging in the ‘Tag Editor’ and ‘Properties’ panel when spaces in the dropdown lists separated suggested symbols of the typed-in words
  • Fixed the bug when a comma in the existing tag value was used to separate a single tag value into multiple tag values when assigning tags via the ‘Properties’ panel and the ‘Tag Editor’ in the web client
  • Fixed the bug when the text after a comma in the ‘Place’ tag was truncated when assigning tags via the ‘Properties’ panel and the ‘Tag Editor’ in the web client
  • Fixed the bug when the thumbnails area was not loading if the expiration date was removed from the files
  • Fixed the bug when the previews of SVG, DWG, Docx and AI file formats were not displaying in the gallery of the web client’s full-screen view
  • Fixed the bug when the parent tag was not displayed when hovering over the tag value in the ‘Tag Editor’ and the ‘Properties’ panel in the web client
  • Fixed the bug when ‘Focal Length’ was not available on the list in the ‘Tags’ panel
  • Fixed the bug when the entered tag values of the custom integer indexed tags reverted to 0 in the ‘Advanced Search’
  • Fixed the bug with handling the group tags in ‘Authors’ (forum post)
  • Fixed the bug when an error message “Input string was not in a correct format” was displayed when importing a CSV file with an empty ‘Rating’ tag
  • Fixed the bug when the ‘Next File’ button overlapped the progress bar of the video file in full-screen mode in the web client
  • Fixed the bug with filling-in the ‘Place’ tag in the ‘Required Metadata’: the filled-in ‘Place’ tag of one file was automatically copied over to all the files in the ‘Required Metadata’ area
  • Fixed the bug when the ‘Date’ folder was not created for the files imported from Dropbox and they were placed in the ‘Month’ folder instead
