Hi. Up until recently LR would remember my recent keyword entries as I typed. So for example, say I have existing keywords
Tom Jones
Tom Paine
Tom the Piper's Son.

If I tagged a photo Tom Paine, then moved to another photo and type "Tom", then it used to autocomplete my typing with "Tom Paine" since that was my most recent Tom entry. The others would appear on the dropdown list below, in alphabetical order as I recall.

This has changed so that the list is strictly alphabetical, ie, Tom Jones is first.

I recently moved moved my CameraRaw cache to a different disk drive. I don't know why that would matter, but in any case I've moved it back to the default location. Nothing else has changed. The main library has 110,000 images, but the same thing happens with a much smaller library.

Can anybody suggest how I can get it back to showing recent entries first?

Thanks very much.
