Can't get descriptions to work

How do I get descriptions to show in TakeCommand?

I'm trying this - no description shown with dir /Z


D:\Users\Tim\programming\beginning-elm\src]describe Playground.elm

They really don't seem to be working. DESCRIBE makes a data stream but donsn't put anything in it.

Code:
v:\> d /: sav*
2021-01-02  22:39           2,288  savedcommands.txt

v:\> describe savedcommands.txt /D"saved commands"

v:\> d /: sav*
2021-01-02  22:39           2,288  savedcommands.txt
                                0    {4c8cc155-6c1e-11d1-8e41-00c04fb9386d}:$DATA

v:\> d /z sav*

I had to go back to v25 to get any descriptions. And now (having given ONE DESCRIBE command, I see this which is inaccurate in v25. In v27 I see no descriptions at all.

Code:
v:\> describe savedcommands.txt
Describe "V:\savedcommands.txt" : saved commands

v:\> d /: sav*
2021-01-30  21:29           2,288  savedcommands.txt

It can also depend on how the discriptions are entered, I have the occasional problems with long file names and descriptions, if you edit them with 4desc.
 
It's already fixed in version 27.0.19 from Feb 3, 2021 ...
"Already" seems quite generous for something that seems to have failed at v25 and not been fixed until v27.0.19 :) Still, yes, it does seem to work now.

Does it actually put the description into one of the NTFS properties I can see in things like Windows File Manager? Now, that *would* be worth the admission fee...
