Lightroom 5.6 keywords not working properly. I edit keywords in a small gallery of images of some flowers. That appears to have worked correctly -- added keywords to some, taken away others. When I move to another gallery, this one having no flowers, the keywords showing in the edit box are the ones from the previous gallery, nothing to do with what should have been there.

Also, when editing keywords, sometimes the feed ahead self completes, before I have a chance to select. This could be user clumsiness and poor mousing skills, but I was paying close attention, and I know I was trying to select peach < fruit, not peach < flower, but the drop down flashed down and then disappeared, leaving me with the wrong one. I backspaced and changed it to Peach, hit enter, and I still had peach < flower. And no peach by itself. I deleted peach < flower and started over with peach and this time the drop down stayed there and let me select the fruit one. This was not a big deal once, but it's been happening too many times.

I am in the process of editing keywords from 10 years back, in a catalog with over 115,000 photos.
