When I export a NEF or CR2 file as JPEG, TIFF or DNG and then import the exported file back into Lightroom the "Title" metadata is not recognized by Lightroom.  The "Title" metadata is recognized by windows explorer and Bridge.

I use this when round tripping to Zerene Stacker.

Steps to reproduce:

1.  In Lightroom populate the Title metadata field.
2.  Export a NEF or CR2 file (D810 / 7DMKII in my case) as a JPEG, TIFF or DNG.
3.  Import the exported JPEG, TIFF or DNG you just exported back into Lightroom.
4.  Check to see if the title is still there.

I can't reproduce this error using Lr CC 2015.4 and OS X; exporting a titled .cr2 to JPEG and then importing that JPEG results in Lr recognizing the title added to the original. Works as it should.

Anything stripping the title upon import? like a metadata preset?

Yes, it works on my Mac too.  Seems to be a windows issue.

Good catch on the metadata preset.  My preset had IPTC Status ticked, although nothing had been entered for any of these fields.  Unticking it solved the problem.

Thanks!!

Glad it worked...I have preset that essentially erases a caption-spam Olympus cameras add...and sometimes I use it with images I captioned. Doh.
