allocation of keywords to selected images in the scroll bar: not operational

I would like to propose an evolution for the Lighroom Classic CC program:

I look at my images with the magnifying glass mode. I use the scroll window below to switch from one image to another. It is common for me to see close images in this bar. In this case, to assign keywords to them, I select them in the scroll bar and assign them keywords. This operation does not work. For this to work, strangely enough, you have to go back to Grid mode for the keywords to be written. In this case, even if the images seem to have been selected, the keywords are only written on the first one.

I would be happy if this could be corrected.

kind regards,

This is by design. If you look at an image in some zoomed in view, like Loupe view, then anything you do with this image is by default limited to that image only. That's because you could easily add a keyword to hundreds of images by mistake, when you don't realise that you actually have hundreds of images selected. The 'Film Strip' (that's the name, not the 'scroll bar') would give an indication, but you could easily miss that.

There is a solution already however. On the left of the 'Sync' button you will see a small switch in this case. Toggle that switch and your keyword will be assigned to all images. The name of the button will change to 'Auto Sync'.
