Couldn't find the answer in the FAQ. Could be my poor searching technique.

Cheers,

Metadata menu -> Export Keywords will do the trick.

Ooooooooooh, I don't think I've been asked that one before. The Export Keywords is in there, but not in that context specifically.

I tried that, but it exported a flat hierarchy. How do you preserve the hierarchy in order to use it on another computer?

Hi Sally. Metadata menu > Export Keywords should export with the hierarchy intact, with tabs showing the different levels of the hierarchy. Have you tried importing the keyword list into the other computer, or opening it with a text editor? Here's an example of the output from mine.

OK, it seems to have worked this time. Copied it from dropbox, then imported it. Thanks
