Custom column:
Lookup name - comments
Column heading - Comments
Column type - Text, column shown in the tag browser

Calibre_Oddity_Before.jpg - No comment; metadata visible
Calibre_Oddity_After.jpg - Comment - Get Book!; metadata not visible

Only change was to put data in the comments column. Removing the data allows the metadata to be displayed again. It does the same whether an empty book or not.

EDIT: The missing metadata is the summary of the book, which when inspecting the metadata through Edit Metadata; Edit Metadata Individually;
is contained in an area titled Comments. Hmmm...

Custom column:
Lookup name - rem
Column heading - Remarks
Column type - Text, column shown in the tag browser

Calibre_Oddity_FoundIt.jpg - Remarks - Get Book!; metadata visible

FOUND IT: I just added a custom column titled 'Remarks'. Entering data in remarks does 'not' make the metadata disappear. The 'Comments' must be a pseudo reserved keyword...
