Keywording panel: Remove individual misspelt, yet recurring keywords?

Hello, in the "Keywording" panel of LR Classic, I type new keywords into the field "Click here to add keywords". (So I am NOT talking about the area below called "Keyword Suggestions".)

 

From that field "Click here to add keywords", a helpful menu with previously used keywords opens up.

 

BUT: That pop up menu also offers *misspelt* keywords – old errors of mine from around 2010 that I don't want to see or use any more. The difference to the correct keyword is sometimes very small and difficult to discern. It is very easy to apply the misspelt keyword again, especially if the correctly spelt version appears lower in the list. This vexing problem exists now for many years.

 

Can I anywhere erase only the misspelt keywords that pop up under the field "Click here to add keywords"? The command "Metadata/Purge Unused Keywords" doesn't seem to help. Also there seems to be no help in the area "Keyword Suggestions".

 

Thanks!

You have to go through your Keyword List panel and find the mis-spelled keywords. There is no global function to do this. You can find the photos with this mis-spelled keyword, assign them all the properly spelled keyword, and then you can delete the mis-spelled keyword from the Keyword List panel. Once deleted, LrC will not display the keywords when you type in the Keywording panel.

For the "autocomplete" behaviour, see for example this blog page:

There is another thing i don't understand: Having applied 1 keyword and then typing another, quite similar keyword, Lightroom suggests the old, already-applied keyword again.

 

It would be so much easier if already-applied keywords didn't appear any more in the autocomplete keyword suggestion list.
