This is a bit complicated but here goes. I am attempting to gradually wean myself off Lightroom. One of the many problems is keywords. I have found that if I export metadata from Lightroom to xmp files then ON1 picks up the keywords – expanding any hierarchy, but that’s another problem. Now, I save the raw, xmp and on1 files to another folder end delete the photo in ON1. I then restore just the raw and .on1 files, not the .xmp. Everything is restored including any key words, change of orientation etc., and no problem in Lightroom.
What I would like to know is, are xmp files really necessary in ON1? Why have a .on1 and a .xmp which causes Lightroom to detect changes. Even if I tell ON1 not to save sidecar files, it will in certain cases create xmps.
Yes, I have taken this up with support a while ago but have had no response.
