    Lightroom 6, Keyword List Hierarchy: How do I make Lightroom add parent tags?

    Scott Sobel Level 1



      I have created a simple sample hierarchy of keywords that includes wildlife->bird->dove->peaceful dove. When I add the keyword peaceful dove to a photo, I would like the photo to also get the keywords dove, bird, and wildlife. As you can see in the attached before and after screenshots, this does not happen.


      What am I doing wrong?


      Is this the intended behavior?


      How can I get the keywords in the hierarchy to add automatically without having to also add them?


      Thank you for any help you can provide.


      My computer is a Macbook Pro running OS X El Capitan version 10.11.6 (15G1217). I am using standalone Lightroom 6 version 6.9 with Camera RAW 9.9.


      Screenshots below.


      Thanks for any help you can provide,
