Why have to change tab to edit title/caption and keywords? More user friendly to have both on same "page".

I agree. There is plenty of room on my iPad screen for both, as long as there are not hundreds of keywords. Why not allow us to hide/show metadata panels as we can in LR classic?

I just started using Lightroom because Aperture is finally going away. Rather than use LR Classic I decided to go with the new cloud based one. I do love the synch between devices and the wife loves being able to access the complete 30k collection of photos on her iPad Pro.

That said, some of the user interface restrictions in this version are just crazy! This one of having to switch panels between info and keywords is driving me nuts. PLEASE can we just have toggles to enable both at the same time? I work on a 40 inch 4k monitor so space is not an issue. I'd just love to be able to see both keywords and photo information AT THE SAME TIME!

The other related issue is the ability to size the side panels. The Photos Panel becomes useless once you nest more than a couple of layers of folders and albums. The folder and album names become truncated and you have to hover over them with the mouse to find what you want. PLEASE can we have variable width sizing for the side panels like every other program ever written???
