When I press "Yes, this is ###" button in similar face suggestion view, LR immediately updates face suggestion with new calculation based on newly added faces.

While it is great that LR tries to get better when new faces are confirmed, with large collection of faces (I am talking about +100 faces for one person), it takes quite a long time to refresh the suggestions. The refresh should be delayed about a few seconds (or can be made manual), letting user to work on suggested faces in quick succession, and then let LR update while taking a breath.

A tip to relieve your frustration... hold down Ctrl/Cmd (for individual faces) or Shift (for a series) and click on multiple faces to select them, and then confirm them all in go. You get basically the same result.

I do use ctrl and/or shift clicks :)
But would like a way to minimize mouse clicks and scrolling...

I wish I could just press Y/N key and photos would advance automatically.
(Sorta like turning auto advance on and pressing X/P/U key in the grid to work through photo selection process)

Oh btw... I would love a keyboard shortcut for "this is ###"... is there one?

Shift-Enter to confirm the suggested name.

Or try clicking on the name to make it editable - hitting Enter moves onto the next photo with the text selected, so you can hit Enter again or type the right name.
