1) In the Keyword list, only the unbracketed "leaf" entries above have associated counts. Is it possible to get a count of (for example) all Spreadwings without manually adding up the numbers for each species?
1. In the Keyword List panel, hover the mouse over Spreadwings and click on the arrow to the right of it.
2. Do Photo > Stacking > Expand All Stacks.
3. Do Window > Panels > Show Filmstrip.
4. The count will be at the stop of the filmstrip:

However the list still shows a count of 404 images with this keyword, even though clicking on that arrow returns "No photos match the filter." Likewise the keywork "Unidentified Damselfly" shoes a count of 183 images, yet when I search my entire library for the text 'Keywords' 'Contains All' "Damselfly", LR finds only 16 images having the keyword "Unidentified Damselfly". I've exported and examined my keyword list, and the word "Damselfly" only appears in these two entries.
Most likely, the photos with these keywords are buried in collapsed stacks; LR filtering doesn't show photos not at the top of collapsed stacks. To work around this:
1. Select All Photographs in the Catalog panel on the left.
2. Make sure Library > Enable Filters is unchecked.
3. Do Photo > Stacking > Expand All Stacks.
4. Click on the arrow to the right of Damselfly in the Keyword List panel.
Ah, I hadn't thought about the Keywording panel - given the number of keywords I have, its suggestions and sets are generally too limited to be of much use so I've been ignoring this one. Thanks!
Bitten by the stack bug! :-(
I suppose the error mesage is correct, strictly speaking, but it would be nice if it instead said something like "Matching photos are all in collapsed stacks" - and maybe had a popup to expand all stacks which contain matching images. Is there a "wish list" thread here somewhere that Adobe might pay attention to?
