Yes: Ability to set or edit keywords tags even in development mode. (Sometimes, you crop, you mask, you reveal something and your subject changes)

Add Metadata tab to the Lightroom Develop Module also. This would be awesome for the photojournalist, like myself, to be able to tone photo, caption it and send it to ftp, all in one window.

This would also make my life easier. Sometimes with wildlife photography, the subject is small, which is especially true for birds. It is typically during development that I figure out the species. Alternately, I may notice a particular behavior during development that I want to tag.

Especially with the new face recognition feature, this would be very very helpful. Otherwise, if you want to check if all faces in a picture have been recognized, and which faces are set as keywords for that picture, you have to jump back to library module. This breaks my work flow every time.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Display keywords in development module (e.g. in loupe info overlay) in Lightroom ....

I terribly miss the functionality to display keywords which have been assigned to a certain picture (for instance face recognition
keywords) directly in the development module.

Right now,
using the grid view in the library module to accept or modify recognized
faces works well (except when doing it in "all pictures" view which is
TERRIBLY slow). But - to check out if ALL faces have been found in a
certain picture you have to enlargen each single picture, or at least
click on it and check out the keyword assignment list on the right side
of the screen. This is very very time-consuming and unnerving.

When you develop your
pictures, you display them full-screen anyway, so it would be very
helpful to be able to control keyword assignments directly in the
development module. For instance, display assigned keywords in that loupe info overlay... this should be fast and easy to implement (best with a correspoing option for those who don't want this).

Oh my... my first post here was two years ago. Did someone say Adobe listen to its customers? :) OK, they can't satisfy every request. But I am pleased to see this one being more popular right now. I keep my fingers crossed.

We tag hundreds of images per day. The evolution of the tagging process ferments during the edit. Currently we have to leave the develop module to update our thoughts and get right back in. It would be ace if we could add the keywords using the same hot keys in the develop module. Or, something amazing that you developer types can come up with.

The Any Tag plugin lets you add keywords in any module, including Develop.  It's designed for fast entry of multi-word keywords using the keyboard rather than the mouse.

It would be great when you are adjusting an image, that you could bring up via a shortcut the keyword dialog box to add another keyword just to that image.

It would be really great if working on dual monitors, you could have some of the library functionality in the second monitor.

Adding keywords while making adjustments would be much more intuitive than having to switch modules. +1 for this functionality!

Adobe should license Aperture from Apple and incorporate its UI principles, including the floating adjustment palette and NO MODES. Modes are stupid and pointless and poor workflow. I should be able to do any activity from one place in the program, not have to move around with a changing UI to accomplish different things.

Please don't use Apple UI Principles.  Its now form over function, kind of like their Hardware Design Principles, and getting worse with every release.

Aperture beat Lightroom's UI in just about every area of usability. Lightroom is AWFUL, especially for those of us who migrated from Aperture.
