I'd love to see LR's import dialog list the previously used keywords. Or at least have the option to display them there.

I personally do a fair amount of repetitive import sessions that require a lot of the same keywords and having to enter them all each time is exhausting.

You probably need to set up more metadata presets.

There's enough variability in my keywording that makes the metadata presets implausible. Something like the Keyword Sets we have in the Library module would be more usable for me in the Import dialog.

Or just let us see the previously used keywords so we can keep the commonly used ones and add/subtract as needed.

Generally speaking, I think it's a good idea to work with keywords at the time of import as opposed to later when it's easy to overlook at forget to to. So having more keyword functionality at the import stage would be be nice.
