NEVER MIND. Problem solved (I couldn't find a way to delete my post)

I just installed PhotoMechanic (PM) version 5 and am learning to use it. My question is about ratings and color labels.

When I rate NEFs in PM (say 1, 2,..., or 5 stars) or use one of the color labels, and then edit the NEF in Nikon Capture NX2 (NX2), the star ratings and labels are both missing.

I have set up PM's IPTC/XMP preferences as closely as possible to what is recommended by CameraBits for interoperability between PM and NX2 (but note that their instructions are for the older version PM 4.4.6).

Does anyone see what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

I don't know how that mountain scene got into this post. It's a nice photo, but definitely not mine!
