Elements 11 needs to import People and Events from keyword tags as in previous versions

PSE11 no longer imports keywords into its new style People and Event tags, making workflow for importing photos considerably slower.

PSE10 and previous versions would automatically tag photos with appropriate people or event tags if the names of those people/events appeared in the keyword metadata. This made importing photos with such info quick and easy and rebuilding a library a sinch.

With PSE11 these are now imported as separate keyword tags with the same name as the special people and event tags and they have to be manually re-tagged into the new-style people/event tags if they are to be recognised. This is very slow and laborious.

There seems no reason why this behaviour had or should have changed. Although there are new People/Event views in PSE11, people were always treated specially in PSE (e.g people recognition). Events in PSE11 do require a date range, that is true. But there is no reason why that date range should not automatically be adjusted to include the new photos
