Please be more specific, what is the difference between Lightroom and Bridge with respect to hierarchical keywords?
Bridge allows you (by setting a preference) to have a hierarchy of Keywords as the default. In Lightroom, I cannot find any options to force a hierarchy on Keywords. If you have set up the hierarchy in Bridge, Lightroom recognises it, so it is not a problem importing from Bridge into Lightroom. I have historically used Keyword in Bridge and I am looking at using Lightroom more and Bridge/Photoshop less. If I start setting up new keywords in Lightroom, will I be able to set them up in a Hierarchy, or can you only set up individual keywords? I have come across the use of keyword 'synonyms' in Lightroom, and they look like an implied hierarchy, but I am unsure about this.
I am not saying one is right and the other wrong, rather I would like to understand the thinking which caused Lightroom to take a different approach. By understanding it, I can make the decision on what is best for me.
