Summary0001835: IPTC character code error prevents saving GPS coordinate
after a trip to Jordan I find that several images, after being synced with GS logs, cannot be saved with the assigned GPS coordinates.
An error window is displayed referencing "IPTC character conversion error".
I tried selecting "OK" or "Ignore" but both result in the image not being saved or at least in GPS coordinates not being incorporated.
A screenshot of an example error window is attached.
For testing purposes I can provide the GPS coordinates for the image, which probably result in the questionable IPTC data:

N31°43'8.76" E35°47'36.16"

Am running V3.4.53 (build 2170) BETA
Steps To ReproduceAssign reported position (for instance N31°43'8.76" E35°47'36.16") to any image; GPS coordinates do appear.
Then try to save changes.
TagsNo tags attached.

Hi zava,

trying to reproduce your trouble (using the same version 3.4.53 (build 2170) BETA), there was no problem for me in saving your giving cordinates including the geotag (country/city/...). See my screenshot "example.png"

In "Settings" -> tab "File Options", did you ...

... check "Save IPTC Data as Unicode (Instead of Local Character Coding)",
... uncheck "If IPTC Data Exists Already, Use It As Is (Unicode or Local Character Coding)"?
