    Library module Removing most, not all, parent keywords

    Finally getting back to this headache. I did as you described, it works (or doesn't) the same in the new catalogue. I think the parent, top level keyword which should be nothing at all is the word "KEY" and there is no way I can see to remove that top level keyword within Lightroom. I think it...

    Library module Removing most, not all, parent keywords

    That's how I'd expect it to work. I tried in a different catalogue and it worked as you showed. I created a screen video to show what the problem on this end is: The parent folder "B" was originally created to hold all of my keywords so it was a top level keyword at one point in case that has...

    Library module Removing most, not all, parent keywords

    Your caution on SQLite is well understood and appreciated. Removing parent keywords is what I'm trying to do. As I explained in the OP I understand the drag and drop method. The blue line appears but it does not drop as expected meaning it does not then appear with the other keywords that have...

    Library module Removing most, not all, parent keywords

    I am trying to remove most of the parent keywords leaving the majority at the top level. I understand I should drag and drop them into that top level and the blue line shows up like it's supposed to but when I drop the keyword it does nothing. It does not move the keyword to where it indicates...

    Keyword Showing Up Everywhere

    After a lot of experimentation I was able to remove the comma from the keyword list. I first deleted the bad keyword at the top level in SQlite and that made the comma appear in the "Will Export" window of every image that had keywords. Back in SQlite I added a comma, that put two commas as the...

    Keyword Showing Up Everywhere

    This issue that was repaired by Phillipe a couple of months ago has reared it's ugly head again, with a different keyword attaching itself to many other keywords but does not show up in the keyword list. Rather than ask again I gave the SQLite a try and Phillipe's instructions work perfectly...

    Keyword Showing Up Everywhere

    Philippe took my catalogue, fixed it, sent it back and so far it seems to be fixed. This restores my faith in humanity AND computers! Louie, I will contact both Victoria and Adobe to see it they want to look into the cause of this issue. Thanks to all for contributing to this, I really thought...

    I'm a bit intimidated by the sqLite tool but will give it a shot. Thanks for prodding.

    Keyword Showing Up Everywhere

    This is much worse than I could imagine. My backup from 5 days ago has this attached to just one image: Vertical has infected nearly every keyword, it's like a worm or something. In this catalogue I created the smart collection "Vertical" and 112,518 of 112,616 has this keyword in it. I tried...

    Keyword Showing Up Everywhere

    Thanks for the response Jim. The plot thickens. I created the smart collection with the keyword: Vertical. That contains 105k of 112k total catalogue images. This screenshot shows the keyword in the image but also shows that the keyword does NOT exist in the keyword list: . In response to...

    Keyword Showing Up Everywhere

    The only way I see to do that is to Edit Keyword and check if the synonym exists within that keyword. I've looked in a handful of these and found no "Vertical" synonym. Is there a different way to search for synonyms?

    Keyword Showing Up Everywhere

    Hi All, I have a keyword: "Vertical" that somehow has attached itself to dozen's or hundred's of other keywords. Example: All of the ones that are containing keywords disappear in the Will Export pane except for one: Odd part with that is that I've searched for "Vertical" in the keyword list...

    Location Info Input Automatically

    That's the clue I was looking for! Thanks to both of you, it does work and even though it's another step it is very much faster than one at a time.

    Location Info Input Automatically

    Thanks for the tip and link. It looks powerful but after installing and poking around I still don't see a way to confirm the location that is currently in italics other than one click at a time. I tried syncing metadata from the iPhone image to the RAW image and now all of these images show the...

    Location Info Input Automatically

    Operating System:OSX High Sierra Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):Lightroom Classic version: 7.1 [ 1148620 ] I'm using iPhone photos to sync location info with my Canon RAW files. The problem is that the Country, City, State, etc. shows up in italics and will not sync unless I...
