It would be wonderful if you could search through more than once LR catalog for a keyword or image at once instead of having to sift through them individually. 

Also, an option to print out of all the keywords onto a page to be able to give to a digi tech would be great as well.

Most useful enhancement indeed is to have meta access to a set of catalogs and allow searching through all of them. I fully agree and support this.

The command Metadata > Export Keywords creates a text file of the keyword list.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom: Allow Opening More Than One Catalog At a Time.

It would be useful sometimes to have two or more catalogs opened in LR to do searches across. Closing and opening catalogs takes time and it is impossible to quickly switch catalog...
