Upgraded to LR Classic 11.1 a few days ago. 

 

Now, when I import NEFs there is no longer an option to click on the right pane and enter fields in Import Options, i.e. modify file names, keywords, etc.  There is only one retangular "dialog" popup in the middle of the screen with three areas: From, Copy as, and To.

 

I've tried right clicking, etc. but cannot get to the previous scheme where the Import Options fields could be edited in the right pane prior to import.  Is this now accomplished by the "Import Preset" box, and if so, how is this managed?

 

I'm able to rename files and attach keywords after the fact, but this is very inefficient.

 

Note that I have not used Lightroom for a while, so this change may have happened in a prior release.

Some screen-clips would help, but if your import dialog looks like this: then you are in the 'Compact' import screen. Expand it to the full dialog with the arrow icon in the lower-left corner.

Also you will not see options to Rename, Keyword, etc, if you select the [ADD] option at the top of the Import dialog.

Rob, although the Rename option isn't possible, the Apply during Import panel (which includes the option to add Keywords) IS still available with the "Add" import option.

Many Thanks.  That was the the solution.  Why didn't I see that?
