There must be some strange difference between our FH V6.2.7 installations.

However I open my Media Property Box via Media tabs, Media Window, etc, and whether floating or docked and with various font sizes it always lists:


Date:               Keywords:

Format:           Custom Id:




Whereas yours puts Custom Id on a different line and omits Keywords as well saying Linked File.

Very odd.

Date:  / Custom ID:


Linked File:



So in my Linked File: it says Media\<name of picture>.jpg etc.

I don't see 



I can only see File if I click the "All" Tab.
