Hi. Is there a keyboard shortcut to auto advance to the next photo in the "film strip" at the bottom? I keyword all my photos after editing and after keywording one of them, I don't like having to move the mouse to click on the next photo I want to keyword. If there was a keyboard shortcut so I could stay in the "keywording input box" and quickly advance to the next photo, that would be a huge time saver. I hate to think of how much time I've wasted over the years and have never thought to ask if there was a faster to way to advance through the film strip. Thanks!

THANK YOU! This will be a huge time saver. Now I can quickly zip through my photos and see which ones still need keywords.

Sounds like you are adding keywords image by image? Just a note: if you want to add an existing keyword to one or more images, then you do not have to activate the Keyword Entry field at all. Select all images that need a certain keyword. Then look at the options right below that field. You have ‘Keyword Suggestions’ and ‘Recent Keywords’ there and you can create keyword sets. These keywords are now buttons. Just click on them to add them to the entire selection. You can also use the Keyword List. Check the box in front of a keyword to add it to all selected images.

Yes, that's correct. I've been adding them image by image. I will try the suggestion you offered. Thank you. I've never used the recent suggestions & recently used but they look super easy. For some reason I make things harder on myself it seems.
