Issue With Lightroom Classic Keyword List

I have a fairly large (100K photo) Lightroom Classic catalog. For a long time, I've had a minor issue with the Keyword List feature. Namely, I can't scroll down all the way to the bottom. Currently, I can only get to keywords starting with the letter "O." See accompanying photo. Otherwise, all the keywords work as they should. Being unable to scroll through all keywords makes it hard to find zero usage keywords, misspelled keywords, etc. If I want to clean up keywords, I've resorted to exporting them, or searching for keywords containing the letter "P," for example.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a workaround or fix?

This is as far down as I can scroll.

If what you want to do is delete unused keywords while in the Library module select the Metadata tab and click on the last item in that pull-down menu - Delete unused keywords.

As for why you can't go beyond the letter O I have not suggestion. BUT I will ask what does it do when you use the keyword search at the top of the keyword list for some word beyond the letter "O"?

It will find any keyword - the inability to scroll to the bottom doesn't impact that.

I have over 107,000 photos in my library and I have not experienced your keyword issue. I just tried it and I could go all the way to the bottom of the list. So you have presented a most interesting problem and I'm sorry I have no idea what is causing it. I wish you luck. Call/text Adobe.

I'd contact Adobe too. I'm unsure of how many unique keywords I have, but I can't get beyond 'F' in my list. But, beyond just occasionally purging unused keywords, I don't ever spend time looking at them in an alphabetical list nor via usage per keyword.

For comparison, my catalog is 98,076 images. When I export the keyword list to a TXT file, the file has 9,622 lines. My own scroll limit appears around a keyword starting with 'F' that is line 3,246.

My list goes from A to Z but it's only about 100 entries long. Sorry I can't help.

Can you close all the darts to the left of each senior keyword tag? When you do this, can you see the last senior keyword tag?

You can make 999 key words in LrC (at least the last time I was aware of when reading on the software). Perhaps you are there? One thing you might want to consider is re-organizing your list so that you don't have to scroll down so far, for example (a main heading) might be ANIMALS and then a sub-heading of WILD and DOMESTIC and then within those you could do down one more level by adding, for example, Cows and Bears in the appropriate category. I've included my keyword list as an example. You can purchase keyword lists or make your own, but the list does need to pertain to the subjects you shoot.
