    Unable to use reverse geocoding when renaming files

    Zupahpete Level 1

      I've asked about this on different discussion boards but no answer so far. The first versions of Lightroom that came with reverse geocoding did not have this problem. But somehow after an update in Lightroom 4 the Google reverse geocoded location fields cannot be used to rename files. This was very convenient for me to export images to people as a landscape photographer working in many places and making it easy for others to locate the place via the filename.

       

      Is this a bug or a Google rights thing? And is there a way to make reverse geocoded metadata permanent (not in gray and italics?) because when I overtype the place myself it does work.

       

      Example below: note that the fields {Country} and {City} or not added to the file name, even though they are in the metadata field.
