Common/shared keyword database for use in multiple catalogs

  • Question
  • Updated 5 years ago
I have a large master catalog and a small "working catalog", ideally i would love them both to share a single common keywords database to make my life easier.

Currently i have to do all my edits etc in the working catalog, import this into my master before i get access to all my keywords.

Hope others like this suggestion and you guys implement it in a future build/release.

You know that you can export Keyword Lists and import them also?

Metadata>Export Keywords...
Metadata>Import Keywords...

You may have to, depending upon your level of discipline reconcile duplicates, misspellings etc, by hand.

Just export your working catalog list, then import it into your master and you will have access to the full set on the Master.

This is a good workaround but in a perfect world a common DB would be great as the data would always be live and work in both directions
