I have LR Classic and my new keywords stopped being stored. I have obviously toggled some switch the wrong way. How to I restore the save function for new Keywords?
Many thanks,

First select an image where you believe you have applied a keyword that is not showing and look in the "keywording" panel, with "entered keywords" option and see if the KW is listed. I'll assume it is there.

Second, In the Keywording panel, make sure you have not typed anything in the "filter" box and that you have selected "All" just under the filter field.
