Keyword deletion

Please make it possible to delete keywords. I have many images with different keywords. There is one keyword I would like to remove from all images. This is not possible (at least I don’t know how) as if I select all the images there are only the keywords displayed for the last clicked image, so if I remove the one keyword, all the images get the same keywords, overwriting the original. Lightroom does it correctly, displaying all the keywords from all the images.

Also I have several empty keywords (misspelled or no longer used). I would like to be able to delete these.

    Earlier today I accidentally mistyped a keyword. I removed the incorrectly spelled keyword from my image, but now On1 insists on showing me the mistyped name in the drop down. Please provide a way to remove incorrect/invalid/unwanted keywords from the list of available options (even if I need to edit a text or xml file).

      Had the same thing happen to me today. Could not delete the keyword without it reappearing. Tried to delete it a few time without success. On last attempt, ON1 quit without warning, and after restarting, all my Cataloged Folders, and Albums were gone. Additionally, all my key-wording edit had vanish.

    This request is a function of good keyword management, so while you are adding the keyword lists to the next release, please add the ability to delete keywords as well!

    This is a big deal for me. Spelling errors and inadvertently hitting enter happen and there needs to be a way to purge unused keywords.

    This overwriting behavior is also frustrating to me. I recently wrote into support about it, and they suggested I use the master keyword list to selectively remove keywords from a set of images w/o overwriting the others.

    this works (hooray!) but it’s a disjointed solution. From the master list:
    * search/add/remove existing keywords
    * scroll through the entire list to see what keywords are applied to none/some/all of the selected images

    From the metadata view:
    * search/add existing *and new* keywords
    * overwrite all keywords for all selected photos (with no warning)
    * see all the keywords currently applied to the primary selection at a glance

    It would be really great to be able to stay in one place to do all keyword actions & get a clean at-a-glance view of what keywords are applied for the selected photos.

      *edit* – I’ve now submitted bugs for the remove keyword flow via the master keyword list. It only seems to work reliably if you both:
      * only have the photos you want to edit visible in browse
      * select the photos after you search for the keyword you want to remove
