Photoshop/Bridge 2019: Cursor simultaneously blinking in multiple metadata fields

I'm a fairly competent user of PS CC and LR CC, although the very latest versions are more confusing than past versions - however, has anybody else noticed that whilst adding or editing metadata to the XMP pane (cmd+option+shift+i), if you move to the next field, the cursor continues to blink in the previous field? (just found the same issue in Bridge). Initially, I reported this to Victoria Bampton (the Lightroom Queen, in the UK), and she says she can also reproduce the same problem, and calls it a "display bug". I'd appreciate a fix, as it's possible to not notice that the cursor is still working in a previous field, and then add erroneous metadata to that field, rather than the field you need to be in.

Howdy Michael,

Yup, I see it.  I think it snuck in with the last update.  I've gone ahead and logged a bug against it.  It should be addressed in a future release.

Thanks,
David

I'm afraid this bug persists and continues to making metadata entry and editing very tedious - any clue when it will be addressed and preferably, fixed...?

many thanks, Mike.

Hi Mike,

I checked and someone is looking into it currently.  I do not know when that work will be done nor am I allowed to share any shipping details.

The bug and this posting are cross-referenced, so when the issue is addressed, someone should add a post here to let users know.

Sorry for the wait,
David

3+ months for a fix, come on, this is truly awful!  Is nobody else complaining, or am I the only person on the planet who adds metadata to images?

1 vote in 3 months does suggest there isn't a great outcry, sorry Michael!

I was correct then, nobody adds metadata!  ;-)
