Or would you like it to be different?

Is this possible in Lightroom CC, or is it only possible in Lightroom Classic?

This is Lightroom Classic. Would you like it to look like this where it is a completely separate panel layout or do you just want the Caption field in CC to be bigger?  

It is a good idea, we just need to let the team know if we want it like Lightroom Classic or something different. 

I gave it a vote anyway but I would prefer to see it just larger rather than a separate like in LR Classic.

I see. Well, the problem with the Lightroom CC Caption field is that I have to write my longer captions in Notes and then copy/paste them into the Caption field. It's especially difficult to edit the captions when in the Caption field. So I guess both solutions (expanding the existing field by dragging a corner, or having a separate panel) would work.

Regardless, I will continue to write captions in notes - until Lightroom Classic or CC gets spell checking in the caption field, it is kind of a moot point.  Without Spell Check, I don't trust writing Kaptions...

One of the only things I hate about Lightroom CC is that the Caption field is just one line tall. One line is okay for Title, but captions can sometimes be a sentence or two (or longer) and that field really needs to be at least three lines tall.

Otherwise I really like the kinda-new LRCC!
