A fellow photographer and I work together often and she has created an amazing hierarchical keyword list. I have never used keywords before so am starting from scratch. She has given me her list and I have successfully imported it and started tagging. For example below it is something like this:
----Tierra Del Fuego NP
---Rio etc etc
Now, her list never included Tierra Del Fuego NP in it as she has never visited there, it's a new location i created and added into the hierarchy. When I search for Ushuaia all images come up as expected, when I search for Argentina, *only* the images tagged Tierra Del Fuego appear. Noting shows up if i search Americas. As an experiment I dragged Ushuaia out of Argentina, into Brazil and then back into Argentina again and it suddenly starts showing up.
Tags on individual images look correct as far as I can see.
But for example when i look at the Falklands - Grave Cove is my new tag - you can see that there are also 70 images under New Island - but in the keyword column on the right they're not recognised until I drag in and out of somwhere else.
There are thousands upon thousands of keywords in this list and the nesting is amazing - which is why I very much don't want to start from scratch - am I msising something that means that only newly created entries show up on search when searching for something up the hierarchy? Is this a bug? I'm on a new M1 mac running Big Sur if that makes any difference at all?
I don't want to continue tagging if it's in vain and would love inpu or fix suggestions. I have tried restarting lightroom and that has no impact.
