I am a newbie here and just discovering LR Classics. I have a huge amount of keywords of people for my photos, and I'd like to know if there is a way to be able to get the keyword I need, not only by entering the beggining of the keyword , but any part of the keyword (for instand, for John Smith), LR automatically finds and offers the keyword it if I start typing "john..."
I would like to know if there is a way to find and automatically fill that same keyword by only writing "Smith" or any part of the keyword I'm searching (like bridge does)
I can't check this because I'm typing this on my iPad, but remember that there are more ways than one to enter keywords. You can also enter a keyword by placing a checkmark in front of it in the keyword list. And in the keyword list you have a searchbar...
If you type "mith" in the Filter Keywords search box at the top of the Keyword List panel, you'll see just those keywords containing the string "mith". You can check the box to the left of a matching keyword to apply it to the current selection of photos.
You could also check out the Any Tag plugin, which was designed for fast keyboard entry of keywords with large keyword lists. For example, typing "j sm" will show all keywords that have a word starting with "j" and a word starting with "sm", e.g. "john smith" and "smiling jack".
