Hi Duncan,

I'm not sure what is causing this. There is a known problem where the
format controls don't update the collect.cfg file correctly. When you type
in the 'Edit Format String' text area is the string shown in the
'Currently Assigned Format Commands' list also changing? If not, unselect
then reselect the offending command (to unselect hold down [ctrl] then
click), and see if that helps.

My second suspicion would be that the dc.Title metadata might not be being
stored properly. Can you post the 'metadata.xml' found in the same folder
where your files are located, within the gimport folder of your
collection, so I can see.
