Lightroom Classic: Keywords in Sync Meta in wrong place

Why  is the keyword field in the  "Sync Metadata" popup (when clicking on that button in the lower right) near the very bottom of the box when it is at the very top of the right pane in Lightroom? Wouldn't it make sense to keep every field in the popup in  the same position as the LR pane?

The right pane can vary in what it shows, especially at the bottom. So while it would perhaps make sense to show keywords on top, it's not possible to show everything in the order that it may or may not appear in the pane.

True but I still find it odd that in the right pane it is in the fixed order from the top of Histogram, Quick Develop, Keywords with the keywords being the top one that can be synced in metadata. Then in the sync window it is at the bottom, this is the field that gets synced and therefore looked at more than any other field for me so it is not intuitive to have it in the exact opposite end of the set of fields.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but there is no way to re order either the right pane or the sync window.

It is true that you can’t change the order. Because you can do that in the Develop module, this may come one day for the Library module too. Who knows. I changed your remark from ‘Problem’ to ‘Idea’.
