I cannot flag, rate, or color label photos in a slideshow. When I use the keyboard shortcuts a message flashes on the screen that the rating has been applied, but when I return to grid view, only the first photo in the slideshow has had any ratings or labels applied. This is in Lightroom 6 running on Windows 8. I have seen the same bug reported for Lightroom 5 and apparently it still is not fixed. In addition to the tagging not working, the space bar, arrow, and escape keys do not work as intended.

Ratings, Labels and Flags are only applied to multiple images from Grid mode. Anytime you apply from Filmstrip or any non Grid display, the ratings, labels and flags will only be applied to the "most selected" or active image.

This is by design.
