Has anybody else seen the behavior shown below?  Aperture 3.4.3 on OS X 10.8.2.


After selecting a project and switching to list view (metadata extended mode), some images will not show the EXIF/IPTC metadata in the table:


But the Info tab on the left for the selected image clearly shows that all of the metadata is there, it's fine:


As a workaround, I can switch to another project


Then, switch back to the previous project, and magically all of the "missing" metadata reappears:



Seems like a bug, I am curious if others have run into it...?


I have the same issue regardless of whether I am in basic or extended metadata mode.  As you can see, I have tweaked the metadata list view display options & order to the tags I want to see.

    Does this happen with all libraries? If you only have one library try making a new empty one and add some images into for testing.


    If it happens in the new library try making a new user and running the same test.


    This will help to identify if the problem is with your account (works ok as new user) or system wide (also fails with new user).


    Also in cases of UI mess ups a good place to start is by removing your Aperture preference file (see Aperture 3: Troubleshooting Basics for a description of how to move out the preference file).
