    ?limit to number of stacks that can be collapsed at once

    I'm with Johan on this. Don't save those derivates, just generate them again when needed. To answer you question; there is a one situation this option is missing and that is when you are 'in' a smart collection. Could this be the case?

    Enlarging the Caption Field in Metadata

    I did not know about this behaviour but LrC does it on my system as you described. When i type in more characters than fit in one line, the field is streched to a second line and so furher. LrC 11.1 and Mac OS 11.6.2

    Is there any point adding keywords to RAW files?

    If you keep all the keywords to your RAW files (in Lightroom) and make virtual copies of your different edits you don't need to keep those jpg's. You can make them again when needed from the RAW with all information available in de Lightroom database.
