Summary0000982: Feature request: save all metadata in a local file.
DescriptionEvery once a while, while saving, I got a complete freeze of Geosetter and I must kill the process, thus losing all temp data not yet saved. Losing work is always very frustrating.
They might be many different cause for such an issue.
Therefore, it would be much more convenient to save all metadata to be saved in a file BEFORE saving them on each pictures via exiftool.

On exit, Geosetter should write a bool "properly saved". If a crash or a freeze happen, on next start, Geosetter will read that it was not properly saved and will load the metadata file saved before.

With this quite simple feature, it will again a pleasure to use Geosetter, even if it's crashed.

PS: 3.4.16 is release, not beta
TagsNo tags attached.

The data will be saved now in background. When closing the program without finished the saving processes, next time when opening GeoSetter you will be asked to continue. It's not finished already, the user interface has to be still adjusted, for example the content of new panel for showing the queued files. But it shuld work already...

if implemented, should it be marked as resolved?

just upgraded to 3.5 and had another crash, allowing me to check these feature: well implemented in the collection mode. The ticket can be closed!
