This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic: Improve control over reverse-geocoded Location metadata

In LR4 it is possible to have reverse geocoded address information suggested for locations.

However to save these suggestions a click on each respective suggestion for country, country code, city and state is needed.

Please add an option to always accept these suggestions. My workflow should be: Click on image, click on location on map. Done.

Right now it is: click on image, click on location on map, click on country code, choose suggestion, click on city, choose suggestion, click on state, choose suggestion, click on country, choose suggestion. Done.

If there are more than one suggestions the first match could be chosen and only *after* it has been automatically applied I could change it by clicking on the respective metadata label and choose another suggestion or manually edit it.

See this post for my initial question:

Agreed, its very painful clicking on the greyed text and having to accept it or even type it out.

It seems to work for one off images, but when more than one photo is selected for the same location, it does not work.

I was hoping that the problem will be fixed in LR 4.3. Is unfortunately not!

Still not fixed in LR5.
LR should always autocommit the results from the reverse geocoding. Alternatively there should be an option for a batch commit.
