SharePoint online details pane not refreshing metadata when using next/prev button.

When navigating back and forth documents it shows the same metadata for all documents

Any ideas why its not refreshing the metadata


  • Where's the next/prev buttons shown in library? I think you need to to select the document in order to see it's details. Mar 9, 2021 at 3:43

I can reproduce your problem in my test environment.

It is recommended that you do the following:

  1. Clear the browser cache, and then sign in page again to perform the operation.

  2. When clicking the Previous/Next button, if the Document Detailed Panel still does not refresh the metadata. Please click the "Exit" icon(X) in the upper right corner, and then click the "Exclamation point" icon(!).

  • I can click on icon but what I'm asking how to resolve without clicking each and every time, I have multiple PDF's to work on ex: more than 500+ files to check PDF content and edit the metadata, so each time clicking on icon is not a solution
