I need to change the IPTC Extension Rights data entered for all photos and need to update the Metadata Preset. I Applied the rights settings wanted to a single photo, then went to "Edit Metadata Presets". I selected the "Replace" option for the Extension Rights. After editing the preset, all other photos indicate "None" for metadata preset. When I apply the now edited preset, the desired changes are not present; they reverted back to the extension rights as prior to the edit to the preset. The preset is not getting updated.

IPTC Extension is important! The Rights section is very non-intuitive. I don't understand why the Rights section of the Metadata Preset Editor is not configured with fields to enter the data as is the rest of the edit panel.

Lightroom needs to focus more attention on Plus Metadata.

Other professionals agree, as discussed on Lightroom Forums here:
