I'm just curious if anyone else is feeling frustrated with LR2's new keyword filtering mechanism.

I get the whole flexible-filters-blah-blah-blah thing, and that actually comes in handy once in a blue moon, but (in LR1) I was REALLY used to being able to browse my entire keyword hierarchy and just click on it to filter. Now I have a keyword list (on the opposite side of the @#%@ screen), but to actually filter by them, I have to go through a convoluted series of clicks and filter-expansions. YUCK.

Does anyone share my pain, and/or has anyone found a trick to make it any easier?

I find the LR2 keywording scheme next to impossible. I must not be groking something, but, like you, I found the LR1 keyword scheme easy to use and very helpful - in fact, essential. LR2s is just too obscure for me right now. I need help too!

The first step to recovery is admitting we have a problem.

My name is Chuck, and I... I... I think Lightroom's new keywording and keyword filtering methods suck!

I don't have a problem with the keyword filtering. Just dislike the new place of the metadata filter (the one I use most) and the performance compared to LR1 (1.4.1).

Check out Lightroom 2.1. Some fixes in the works.

I've definitely noticed the memory leak which causes LR to eventually grind to a halt. I think CS3 may suffer from leakage as well but I am usually running CS3 along side LR 2 so the culprit is probably just LR.

I don't find the keywording a problem. The new sorting filter takes a bit of getting used to but I like it better than LR 1.
