Thread: Reorganising Lightroom keyword heirarchy - faster way than drag & drop?

    Default Reorganising Lightroom keyword heirarchy - faster way than drag & drop?

    I just imported all my photos from Picasa into Lightroom 4. The good news is all the keywords/tags painstakingly input on Picasa were properly read by LR4! However, I am finding it a pain to organise the keywords into 'heirarchy' e.g. Barcelona<Spain<Europe, etc using the 'drag and drop' method. The list of keywords is very long (hundreds) and I have to click and hold a keyword, scroll the list down or up by placing the cursor exactly in the right position at the top of the box, find the keyword i want and then drop it in to create the nested keyword.

    My question is - Is there a faster way than dragging and dropping?

    You've got hundreds of keywords is bit of too many..
    You can create a new "key word set" to contain the keywords you wanted, however lightroom only allow 9 keywords to be
    set in each "key word set". i'd advise you to organise all your keywords into set, giving them different name in set would
    make your life easier.
