Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): LR Classic 7.0.1.

Keywords won't delete now. Highlighting and Right-Clicking doesn't work, using the "-" symbol up top doesn't delete either. I have tried renaming the Keyword, that doesn't solve it, tried rebooting computer, still won't delete. Anyone else having this issue?

This is a known bug. Workaround is as following:

Create a new temporary, arbitrary keyword. Move keywords which you like to delete inside the temporary keyword. Then you can delete the temporary keyword and all keywords inside are deleted also.
