Keyword phrases don’t stay intact

This has always happened when creating keyword phrases with all versions of LR Classic and all OS versions.

 

When I type a keyword phrase followed by a comma and hit enter, the phrase breaks into its individual words. Empire State Building becomes Building, Empire, State. However, when I put quote marks around the phrase, it remains intact.

 

This is a now a big problem because I have a project involving long keyword lists with phrases created outside of LR that I need to copy and paste into LR.

Now using LR Classic 9.4 and Mac Catalina 10.15.4

Not sure if this is helpful but when you add quotes when keywording you are nesting:

Put Inside "[keyword]"

(Available if an existing keyword is selected when you create a keyword) Nests the new keyword under the selected keyword so that it is contained by the higher-level keyword.

 

You'll find the full explanation here: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/help/keywords.html

Have you tried clearing/flushing the keyword list? It is auto typing previous keywords.

Thanks for your reply. It isn't autotyping. It will happen if I type a phrase consisting of keywords I haven't used before.

Can you screen record adding a keyword phrase? At the very least can you post a screen shot of the "Keyword Set" dropdown menu? I've changed every setting to try to make Lr separate key phrases into separate words and can't make it happen. You could try to Restore Default Presets to see if that will clear any settings that are making phrases separate into single words separated by a comma.

I don't know about copy and paste of lists, but if I type a keyword phrase, then that phrase remains intact. I use lots of keywords that contain multiple words.

Using above example from OP, the original phrase is retained. I see no  evidence that the phase has been split into individual keywords. Also, and like Johan, I have been using multi word keywords since it was possible to add keywords.

Try giving an image a new keyword phrase involving words never ever used in any catalog on your computer, just make something up, does the issue repeat?

Unfortunately that doesn't make a difference.
