While waiting for DxO to give us the possibility of having presets, I found a way to fill in the IPTC fields automatically with presets.
I use Macro Deck for my keyboard shortcuts and I configured a key for a preset with the following sequence:
Yes of course there is also this means which I hope is temporary.
I chose another way since I have a navigation between the folders/images which is very slow so go get an image copy the IPTCs then come back to my image, it will be binding.

The lack of IPTC productivity tools in Photolab to maintain metadata with and the absent support for migration to and from other IPTC-software are the main indicators that Photolab in itself still is a hobby user tool when it comes to metadata support.
There is quite a lot to like about Photolab PictureLibrary already but it´s essential that DXO listens and adds these tools ASAP.
