Title: Mac Mojave problem with keywords.
Post by: KuriousKat on December 29, 2018, 09:44
I recently updated my Mac to Mojave and I'm now having a problem seeing all my keywords for a file.

I used to be able to right click an image and 'Get Info', which meant I could easily copy and paste keywords if I wanted the same set for a new image. Now I find the window is only showing me the first 8-10 words then saying 'and 40 more'. I can see those words if I hover over, but I can't copy and paste the selection.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

Try to triple click (it should select all the text, even the one you don't see) and then copy and paste elsewhere…
Let me know ;)

Thanks Chichikov,

I tried that, but it literally pastes the first keywords and adds '40 more'! I can get them by opening the inspector, but it's just a nuisance to change habits. I was hoping it would be a hidden setting somewhere and I could just flick a switch.

I appreciate your suggestion anyway, and Happy New Year to you,

Kat

The triple click always worked for me, but on previous OS.
Also place the cursor in the keywords window, then command A, then command C, then command V (where you want it)
Did you also tried to open the info window using option+command+I (not only command I)?

Sorry, I cannot help more.

HNY to you!

Thanks Chichikov,

I've tried all of the above but it doesn't work :(

I guess I'll have to get used to a different workflow.

Or Time Machine and get back to the previous Os.
Do you really need Mojave??
Personally I never install a new Os before the version x.x.5

I like Mojave, and this is the only issue I've come across so far. I will learn to live with it :)
