Can Location Attribute be modified conditionally?

I would like to blank out the Location attribute if it is a specified string, like my home location.

I like having the Location shown but if the image was taken at home I'd like to blank it. I take lots of pics in the garden, etc. and I think they would look nicer if home location not repeated many, many times.

    There's no way to do this automtically, but you could do it by hand fairly quickly:

    • open your project in Designer, go to List view, and make sure the Location column is visible (Right click the column header and click the checkbox for 'Media Location'

    • sort by the Location column
    • scroll until you see the first one with your home location. Click to select the row
    • scroll down until you see the last item with your home location
    • Shift click to select the range of rows
    • Now, you want to remove the "%location%" variable from the Caption.

    One way to do it:

    • Hit Command-4 to open the Info window on the Caption tab.
    • remove the %location% variable

    • Confirm that you want to apply this change:

    Another way to to do it:

    • make the change in a single row of your sequence
    • copy that row
    • select all rows that you want to modify
    • Use the 'Paste Attributes' command, and paste only the Caption's Text value:

  • Thank you.
