    is it possible to wrap text in the captions output box?

      this issue is partly resolved by the release of 1.3 THANKS is there any way that we can have more control over the position of the text and if we could stroke a box around it?

      I have used the ambersand "&" character in my IPTC Description field but when this is used in CSX i get "&amp:". any ideas on how i can stop this aprt from not using that character.

      thanks

      Dave

      I haven't been getting notifications when messages are posted here, so I'm sorry if I'm a bit late.

      The position of the caption can only be managed using the alignment options on the Caption panel. There may be another option for modifying the horizontal position, but that would only be useful for single column sheets.

      As for the '&' character problem...

      I've seen PS do this kind of thing in other contexts, but not here.

      I'll test it out and let you know what I find.

      -X

      '%Wx%H %Rppi'  does not work for me  PhotoShop CS3  in CSX-1_4_2
      am I missing something
      '%Wx%H %Rppi' %F %S %W %H %W %N %T only returns filename.ext  Size  and the two dates

      The others are missing

        You need to go to the Advanced panel and change the hiperfMode setting to Basic. This will make CSX open the images before copying them into the contact sheet instead of placing them into the sheet as SmartObjects. It's slower, especially for large (raw) images, but a side effect is that it gives CSX full access to all of the images' metadata. CSX should do this automatically, but I apparently introduced a bug in v1.4.2. If Bridge is open, it will try to get metadata on the images via Bridge, but that too is slow and in v1.4.2 is broken, too.
        I'll be rolling out v1.4.3 in a month or so that will fix this and several other related problems.

    Hello, thanks for this amazing tool.

    I would like to position captions horizontally for my single column sheets, Above you mention this may be possible. May I ask how?

    I have an issue where if I use captions the image is slightly reduced or squashed so there is some white space at the bottom of the image (I place the caption at the bottom right). It does this even if I select 'overlay'.

    Thanks again.

    T.
