I have created and imported a hierarchical keyword list for Lightroom to keep image tags consistent across several computers and users. It works correctly on Mac but on PC the keywords that are higher up on the hierarchy are not applying when they should be. For example the Studio tag is set up to apply the Location tag as well when it is applied to an image but it is not doing so. Any ideas?
For example the Studio tag is set up to apply the Location tag as well when it is applied to an image but it is not doing so.
On Windows, take a test image, and apply the Studio keyword to it. Next, in the Keywording panel in the right column of Library, set Keyword Tags to Enter Keywords. Only Studio should be showing:
Next, change Keyword Tags to Keywords & Containing Keywords. Now Studio and Location should show:
Finally, change Keyword Tags to Will Export. Now, both Studio and Location should show:
If Location doesn't show, that means one of the export attributes of either Studio or Location is not set. In the Keyword List, double-click Studio -- is Export Containing Keywords set? Now double-click Location -- is Include On Export set?
