Metadata template bug with keywords?

Hi, I noticed that in 11.0.1, windows, if multiple keywords are added from a template, they will be merged inside quotes:

If I try to add Keyword1 and Keyword2 in a metadata template, they will show up  as "Keywork1; Keyword2" instead of keyword1; keyword2, once added to a file.

This works regardless if I'm picking up the 2 KWs from a file, or writing them down with the ; in between.

 

Will try on Mac, did anyone notice it? I have started a uservoice thread on the topic.

The problem does not exist on a Mac, with 11.0.1 that has the same additional Custom Metadata Panel (not Adobe's)

Do you mean when editing metadata template and adding additional keywords? I can not reproduce on Windows Bridge version 11.0.1.109

Once you add them to the files themselves. It looks right in the template, now apply them to a file, they will be grouped together. At least in 3 of our PCs.

I have not seen this on either platform. I have Bridge set to read and write hierarchical keywords which does seem to make a difference. There is some buggy behavior between different keyword namespaces which I have bugged and I'm not sure what the correct behavior should be.
