    Is there a way to create a metadata preset non-forced value?

      When importing a set of images that already have some metadata, I would like to provide "default values" for a few items.

      For example some of the images being imported may already have a copyright setting and I would not want to overwrite that with my own default copyright.

      I once thought that not checking the box against an item would let the value be set if the image's corresponding value was empty, but in practice if it hasn't got a check-mark it's ignored.

      My current strategy is to not use a metadata preset during Import but to have a Smart Collection that identifies images that have no copyright set, then deal with what arrives in that collection.

      Thanks
