Is there some way to have the Keyword Set expanded from the 9 most recently used to a larger number?
or better yet- to be able to compose a unique (or many unique) keyword sets that can have all the keywords seen at one time?

You can't currently expand to more than 9 keywords, although I'd like to see it expanded too. You might be interested in this plug-in though

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom: Ability to display more than 9 'recent' keywords.

As a sports photographer using Lightroom intensively for photo's of team sports matches, I would greatly benefit from a keyword-tagging feature that would allow:
- more than 9 'recent keywords' to be pre-selected/proposed in the box
- any other 'faster' method of tagging up to 25 'players' in for example a photoseries of a match...

I'd like to see the "keyword set" get a makeover.

First, it needs to hold more than 9 items. If I want to create a custom set for keywording images of a Tae Kwon Do tournament, for example, I'll need the keywords: tae_kwon_do, tournament, sparring, pattern, trophy, kick, punch, judge, ceremony--plus the names of the instructors, judges, and participants. That could easily be two dozen keywords.
Basically, a keyword set should hold an arbitrary number of keywords.

Second, the automatically-updated "keyword suggestions" contains hierarchical keywords (eg "tae_kwon_do > sport"), but the keyword set won't do hierarchical keywords. This makes it much less useful than it could be--and inconsistent, since the "keyword suggestions" can handle them.

I will say I like the fact that you can click on a keyword to toggle its addition and removal.
