Metadata inputs made from the Metadata tool in Capture One get automatically saved. This is done so we can save some time in future inputs. However, we could make mistakes like typos and we might want to delete those suggestions.
- In order to delete those saved suggestions on Windows: (Mac at the bottom)
We will need to find AutoCompleteTextDictionary in user.config file. This file is located in:
%localappdata%\Capture_One\CaptureOne.exe_StrongName_y3yh4brhpfi14u41fltdrpfruizxirsn\184.108.40.206 (version might change depending in which Capture One we have)
This file will look like this:
Each "Phase Onefgtrrt" are saved suggestions, in order to delete them, we need to delete each of them by deleting:
This will have an effect after closing Capture One.
- In order to delete those saved suggestions on Mac:
On Mac, we need to insert command from the Terminal. In order to open the Terminal:
- Click the Launchpad icon in the Dock, type Terminal in the search field, then click Terminal.
And we need to perform this action in the Terminal, for example:
defaults delete com.captureone.captureone16 contact_city_METADATA_COMPLETIONS
defaults delete com.captureone.captureone16 content_description_METADATA_COMPLETIONS
defaults delete com.captureone.captureone16 content_category_METADATA_COMPLETIONS
Remember to use your Capture One version number on the above command
Remember to change your IPTC section name
That is going to remove ALL autocomplete prompts for a given field.
The effect is visible after restarting Capture One.
