What I expect, is that all the selected images will be set to the date/time I typed in. But, this is not what happens. What happens is that the active image gets the typed in date and time but the other images get a similar, but different date time.
For example, The file time on the scanned image A is 5/9/2016 6:42 pm and the file on img B is 5/9/2016 6:44 pm. Then in LR I import these two images using the move option and a file rename preset. When the import is done, the moved files have the same file date/time as before the move however the metadata in LR does not show any date fields (I have EXIF and IPTC view selected).
Now I select both images with the first one being the active image, go to menu Metadata -> Edit Capture time. In the dialog that comes up I select "Adjust to a specific date and time", I fill in 10/15/1984 2:00:00 pm and click the "Change All" button. Now in LR, there are two dates showing for each image. The first image (which was the active image when I did the date change) has 10/15/1984 2:00:00 pm for both the "Date Time Original" and "Date Time" metadata fields as expected. However, the 2nd image has 10/15/1984 2:01:39 pm for those two fields. In other words the 2nd images' time is 1 minute and 39 seconds later than the date time I typed in.
This is not what the text "Adjust to a Specific Date/time" implies should happen.
