I did keywording, title, description, copyright etc. in Bridge to raw files that were also in lightroom. When I imported the metadata into lightroom all the develop settings I'd set got reset. Works every time. Screws up my workflow. Raw files need that metadata so any files exported have it too.

You should either write the LR metadata to the files before doing the Bridge changes, OR before importing from Bridge, Save Metadata To Files from Develop before doing Read Metadata From Files.  Please test this last scenario before using it en masse.
