I'm writing metadata in ArcCatalog, then exporting them with the Export button under the Description tab. My workflow, and the environment in which the metadata are published, require that I export manually.
Every time I attempt to export metadata, however, any folders I have expanded in the Catalog Tree are collapsed during the export process. This is quite cumbersome, because it means that after each export I must re-expand all folders in which I was working, and that it becomes much more difficult to distinguish those folders from the folders with which I'm already finished.
Can somebody tell me how to permanently stop the folders from being collapsed in the Catalog Tree during export? This really isn't the best design feature and I hope there's some way around it. Thank you!
