"NX 2 metadata"


Qawra St Pauls Bay, MT
          

hello all, my next silly question is - Can you enter a copyright symbol © to an image in the NX 2 metadata section from within NX 2. i.e. in the space allocated for your copyright details below keywording etc.

Thanks for looking.

Of course. Text is text, whatever the characters are. The copyright symbol
on a Mac is inserted by holding down the Option key and typing g. On windows
I think you hold down the Alt key and type 0216 on the number pad. At least
that's how I do it.©©©

I know I said silly question but not that silly, my reason for asking is that on my laptop I get the symbol with Alt + 0169 but it does not work with NX 2.
Next I tried another method I use with other imaging software by going to Word - Insert - Symbol- and copy & paste the copyright symbol but again it does not work in my NX 2.
I just wondered if there was the facility inbuilt in NX 2.
The method I now use is to right click a thumbnail in Win gallery and add the symbol with Alt 0169.

Odd, it definitely works for me. I use the (C) symbol in Word which automagically translates to the copyright symbol -- and then cut and paste into NX 2 (2.2.4).

As an example screenshot -- http://c2mphoto.com/working/test/Desktop2.jpg. This is after 'Apply' and then reselecting the file to see the meta-data. Can you confirm this is the correct XMP/IPTC field? I tested with both Windows 7 and XP (Pro) and both worked for me. Can you tell us what you get when you try to paste into the copyright field (if anything)?

cheers,
Charles

What version of NX2?

As you can see, it certainly does work in version 2.2.4

Not all computer programs can display some or all of the special symbols with a hexcode greater than 128 dec, 0137 octal, or 0x7f or they may display a different character or symbol. Sometimes this is also a result of the font style you are using.

Not all cameras will let you enter the single character symbol, so you can use '(c)' as an alternative.

Note: as far as I know (c) has no legal meaning in the United States, only © and copyright do. (But I can be wrong about this of course; by no means am I a United States copyright expert.)

Doesn't work with my 2.2.4 and Win XP. Perhaps requires Vista or Win7 for it to work in NX2? BTW, does work in other contexts - Notepad, Word, etc. - just as for the OP, so it's not a general OS problem.

My NX is certainly not bent dont like the accusation either.
I have the latest unbent version and unbent Win 7 64 bit and it does not accept a copyright by copy and paste or by my usual alt 0169.
I put it in by right clicking the thumbnail.

I have XP Pro on an HP desktop and a Compaq laptop. I have always been
able to enter the copyright symbol AND the slashed zero (I'm a ham operator
and need the slashed zero a lot) in Winword, Notepad, Outlook, Excel, Internet
Exploder (Explorer), ViewNX, CaptureNX2 and any number (literally dozens) of
ham radio applications. I've been entering the slashed zero Ř into applications
since DOS 3.2 and Windows 3.11. Your operating system is bent.

Sorry, but I've been working with IT for over 30 years now, and one rule for solving problems has always worked: If the problem occurs in several environments, the problem is at your end. If it occurs in only one, the problem is there.

In my system, the ALT key combo for entering the symbol fails only in NX2. Hence the problem lies there.

Clearly, NX2 has a problem with the ALT key combo in certain system configurations, mine and the OP's being examples.

I am also a (former) IT guy. I could not get the copyright symbol to come up in Capture NX 2.2.4 with the ALT key. However, I was able to paste it in from MS-Word 2007. In Word, I opened a document and typed in "(c)" and it automagically created the c within the circle. Then I copied the symbol and did a paste into NX2.

So, I agree that NX2 has an issue with the ALT key, but there is an alternate solution that worked for me any my system configuration.

Not trying to raise your hackles, but on my system, neither NX2 nor any other
application has any problem with _any_ alt-key combo. See the following
screen shot, NX2 version 2.2.4, on an old HP Media Center Desktop, XP Pro
Service Pack 3. I get IDENTICAL results on my Compaq Laptop. However, since
these are both HP products, I just loaded NX2 onto my wife's Toshiba laptop,
with, once again, IDENTICAL RESULTS. Oh, by the way, my neighbor's Dell laptop
also exhibits the same results. Simply no problem in NX2 (or any other
application) with any alt-key combo. And of course no issues on my macs.
Five brands of computer, no issues. Since the problem exists in NO
environments whatsoever, therefore, the problem is NOT CaptureNX2.
End of test.

From other posts in this thread, a problem clearly does exist with Capture NX2 in some environments. It's not helpful to simply dismiss other members' experiences.

In my own configuration - Intel Quad-core, Vista Home Premium 32-bit SP2 - NO alt-key combination works to enter special characters in metadata fields in Capture NX 2.2.2. When I press Alt, the cursor disappears from whichever text box it had been positioned in.

Alt-key DOES work in all my MS Office applications, in PS Elements, and (interestingly) in Nikon View NX 1.5.0.

Edited to add...

Co-incidentally, I was just creating a new XMP/IPTC Preset in NX2, so I tried entering Alt-0169 in a text box in that window... it worked. I'm not sure what the difference is.

Further edit...

Playing around with this a bit more, what seems to be happening is that pressing Alt when in the Edit workspace leads NX2 to think you want to enter a workspace shortcut. That doesn't apply when you're creating or editing an XMP/IPTC preset, so in that window Alt-key combinations work normally.

Is there a way of disabling workspace shortcuts to see if it makes a difference, I wonder...?

I did disable the first shortcut - the one that starts with ALT-0 - and that didn't help. But I'll try disabling all of them and see if that makes a difference.

It may be tomorrow (Mon.) before I've a chance to do that. I'll post results either way.

As to disabling them - IIRC there's an option to change the key combination(s) and one of the choices is 'None'.

I set all the workspace shortcuts to 'None'. Didn't solve the problem. The cursor still disappears from the copyright field and ALT-0169 doesn't place the copyright symbol there.

And I can't resist commenting on the notion that our OS's are somehow 'bent'. If your OS is bent, you're going to have a lot more problems than not being able to enter a given symbol in one particular app - say like your computer crashing all the time and no matter what you're doing.

My recollection is that the Num Lock key must be pressed for ALT-xxxx to work.

Maybe it's not?

I get the same behavior as you. It seems the Edit workspace precludes using the Alt key in this manner.

To answer the OP's question...
If ever there was a field that begged for the © symbol to be entered by default it would the Copyright Notice field!!!

Rather than fighting with NX2 to enter the symbol from the Edit workspace, why not simply enter it as a preset from within the Preferences dialog? Then, if there is any reason why you would NOT want the symbol to appear in the field, you should have no trouble whatsoever deleting it from the Edit workspace.

Regards,
Frank

Frank, many thanks for your trouble, I have recently found that for whatever reason I can now copy & paste from Word. Alt key method still ineffective but can at least do it now and I will also try your suggestion.

I used to use Alt-key combos for characters like this, but now I just pop open the "Character Viewer" in my Mac, and there's a full display of all system characters. Click on one, and it's entered into the document or application. No need to press Alt, so, seems that should solve the problem with NX2 getting confused. Isn't there something like that for Windows?

NX2 does hijack some common key shortcuts, even on a Mac. For instance, almost every program is hidden by pressing Command-h. But in NX2, I have to press Cntl-Command-h to hide. Most probably, Windows NX2 hijacked the normal Alt-#### keystroke for entering alternate character set characters.

Right; so don't tell me that my experiences with three different operating systems
and five different brands of computer are meaningless either!

Like others in this thread, I have only spoken about what I see on my system. I have implied nothing about what you are seeing.

Since you are not seeing the same problem as others, can I ask whether you have workspace shortcuts using Alt-key combinations assigned in your NX2 preferences, and if so what they are?

Not sure what freewheeler is trying to prove, since starting the thread (because I thought this site would be a good friendly place to ask a question, bearing in mind I too have been around computers since before they were digital)I dont want to be told that all my genuine software is bent and how great you are, thats not the point.
Doesnt matter how many systems you have had, I have had them all since before the original Sinclair, now I have Win7 & 64 bit and my question was to all the other nice people who understood it wnd have given very intelligent repies as opposed to :Your software is bent:

Wow MT what a way to react- you asked a question and freewheeler did have the answer.
I see nothing wrong with the choice of words used by freewheeler. As a matter of fact I think freewheeler is very useful and to the point with all his answers.

Freewheeler please disregard MT's comments and keep on writing on different subjects.

If you read the whole thread, you'll see that freewheeler's answer does not seem to be applicable in every case. Investigations continue...

Thanks, I've wasted enough time on this subject. One last test; I stuck a
blank hard drive in the compaq laptop, did a full system restore to XP
service pack 2, installed CaptureNX2; works like a charm, slashed zeros,
copyright symbols, etc. I'm outta here!

Where there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us
nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in
which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.

A lot can depend upon what font is being used and the characters that are provided in that font. If the '©' is not available, then it is not available. The same font from a different vendor might not have the special symbols. This may have very little to do with the OS, but more to do with exactly what has been installed on one's particular system.

That's quite true but I don't think it's the problem in this case. As mentioned earlier, when I press ALT, the cursor disappears from the chosen text box, and it's simply impossible to enter any ALT-key combination.

Is there a way of selecting a different font for the IPTC fields in NX2?

It's likely someone already noted the following; if so, I missed it in all the heated discourse.

You must Click on the New tab prior to entering anything in the IPTC fields. You'll see the © symbol successfully entered here and in the captured image from NX2's preferences panel below. I used option-g on an iMac.

Also, if you are only trying to enter the symbol in the metadata sidebar panel, as opposed to preferences, an image must be present. The preferences panel makes global assignments, the metadata panel makes an assignment only to the current image.

I for one have tried it with an image open; it works (or rather, does not work) as already described
