Can't Drag Keywords in Lightroom Keyword List

I'm trying to re-organize and finding two problems in Lightroom:

  1. I can't drag and drop keywords in the keyword list so I can't add hierarchies or move words that are in the wrong hierarchy.
  2. Even though I have instructed LR not to export a few organizational keywords, it still does so. I have even changed them to people keywords and instructed the export dialog not to export people keywords. They still show up after export.

Thanks for any responses. I'm using Windows 10 and the latest version of LR CC.

Do you have more than about 1500 keywords?  LR Windows starts choking when you have more than that, and Adobe has decided not to fix it.

Exactly what steps are you taking to do that?  And how are you verifying that the keywords are present in the exported file?
