Click this button to bring up a dialog where you can configure how metadata is handled within darktable. For each metadata item, two check boxes are available which allow you to restrict how metadata is handled:
  • hidden: Hide this metadata field. It will not be displayed anywhere in darktable and will not be included in exported images.
  • private: Keep this metadata field private. It will be displayed within darktable but will not be included in exported images.
If both options are unchecked, the field will be displayed within darktable and included in exported images.
