Has anybody else seen this problem in CQ5.5?
Create some custom Metadata settings using these instructions:
Create /apps/dam/content/asseteditors/formitems (copy the form from/libs/dam/content/asseteditors/formitems). Add a new control and set the name to ./namespace:property e.g, ./dam:Example. Save your changes. After saving, all CQ DAM users can view and edit this property.
When I upload an asset to the DAM, I only see the new metadata setting if I disable the default workflow launcher "DAM Update Asset"
If it is enabled then I can only see the default metadata.
Is this a bug?
I see that Service Pack 2.1 has some DAM fixes, but I have not had a chance to see if it addresses this issue.
I also had this problem, but when you upload a document(.docx) you can see the new metadata setting.
If you check under path /libs/dam/content/asseteditors, there are other folders like application, image which have their own metadata.
For example if you need to attach new metadata for a .pdf file you need to create new metadata under path
