This may not be the correct place but here it is anyway! When I want to perform a search for images with certain keywords, for examle a 'chair' made of 'cherry' with 'leather seat' with 'inlay' I am told by Adobe that the only way is to either perform a search in the 'Search' window using a single keyword, say 'leather' then another search with another keyword,say 'chair' etc until I have entered all the keywords that apply - four searchs in this case, or to go to the find menu and add search fields as needed - four search fields in this case. Another way is to go to the 'Filter' list at the left of the screen and go down through what has quickly become a very long list of keywords, checking the ones that apply. These both seem clumsy to me. It seems to me that the program should be able to be set up so that the 'Search' window should accept multiple keywords at once seperated by a semi-colon so that you only do one search. ie: if you want to find an image of a chair with leather seat made of cherry with inlay on it you would enter chair;inlay;cherry;leather in any order in the 'Search' window just as you add keywords in the 'Information' window and Bridge would find it.
