Keyword Set Feature Request for LR

I wish Lightroom would allow us to apply all keywords in a keyword set at once. I currently work around this with a Quickeys macro that gives me Option-1, Option-2 etc but it would be great if LR had a key stroke to do this. Thanks!

Have you tried the Painter tool Scott? That will allow you to apply multiple in one go.

Thanks for the suggestion--is there a way to avoid having to type a set of keywords into the Painter? If so, this would work great. I'm applying between 20-30 sets of keywords to groups of images over and over. Typing them each time wouldn't work.

I apply keywords to one picture, then copy the set from the "enter keywords" box and paste it into the brush keywords line. After that I Cmd-select the pictures needing to be keyworded and "psht". Done!

I keep a text file of sets of keywords and copy and paste from there (or now I use TextExpander to store it for me).

I know that's not an ideal workaround, and I do agree the feature request would be useful, but hopefully it'll help in the meantime.

I appreciate the suggestions, thanks. If nothing else this had made me look at the Paintcan more closely and how I might use it for other things. My QuicKeys method works until (I hope) this becomes a feature within LR. Thanks again!
