When in Library mode in Loupe view (and several images selected in Filmstrip): Right clicking on a keyword on the Keyword list and choosing "Remove this Keyword to Selected Photos" does not work correctly. It only removes the keyword from the current image (not the other selected). The Add-functionality seems to work.

Using Lightroom 5.7 on Win 8 64bit.

Interesting bug.

Normally, when you're in Loupe view, changes you make to metadata via the Metadata panel only apply to the current photo, even if others are selected. Adobe has always considered this a designed feature, not a bug, even though lots of people get continually get confused by it -- the theory is that in Loupe view, you can't easily see that other pics are selected, so changes should only apply to the current photo.

Looks like they inconsistently applied that design to the Add/Remove commands on the right-click menu in the Keyword List.
