The user should be able to establish a target location for the insertion of keywords created by face recognition for verified named individuals. Currently, the keywords are inserted into the first alphanumeric sort-order location in the user's entire keyword list. This means users who have segmented their keyword lists into hierarchical sections may have keywords created by face recognition installed in an inappropriate section of their keyword hierarchies.

Example: The user has a keyword section for LOCATIONS and another section for PEOPLE, Each section is the top level of a hierarchy containing multiple keywords of the specified type, alphabetically sorted. The LR 6.0 product will insert keywords created by face recognition under the hierarchy with the "LOCATIONS" header rather than under the hierarchy with the "PEOPLE" header.

How to implement: One way to implement this feature would be to create a new reserved keyword; let's call it faces_target. The user would place this keyword at the point in the keyword list where keywords referring to people should be inserted. All new keywords created by face recognition would be inserted in alphanumerical order below the reserved keyword.

Right-click on your chosen parent keyword and select Put new Person Keywords inside this keyword.

Thanks, Victoria. Never occurred to me to try that.
