No way to undo overwriting of filenames after 'copy'ing title from first to (2nd...18th...etc) later files
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If you copy metadata from the first file to the remaining files, but forget to uncheck the title field, there doesn't appear to be any way to undo the mistake. This can make an upload of dozens of files suddenly worthless as you can't tell which file was which anymore.
