Managing the Keyword Library – or indeed multiple Keyword Libraries – is the key to mastering quick keywording.
If a list is required to be used on another workstation or if you wish to export a document Keyword Library as a foundation for a custom Keyword Library, you can export the list from the contextual menu option (…) in the specific Keyword Library to a text file (.txt).
This .txt format can then be imported to another workstation, shared, or reimported for customization. Upon import of the .txt file, it is converted to a .cokeywordsdb file and stored in the applications support folder.
To import a Keyword Library from another source, click on the (…) icon in the Keyword Library toolbar, press Create Keyword Library…, and then select an option from the fly-out menu. Capture One supports import from a variety of sources.
- Keyword .txt file (file generated by exporting an existing Keyword Library).
- Media Pro vocabulary file.
- Catalog/session (document Keyword Library from selected Catalog/Session)
NOTE: When importing text files with keywords (keyword lists (e.g., from Lightroom) and Media Pro vocabulary files), the following characters are not allowed in the text file:
| ; , < >
By default Shared Keyword Libraries are stored in the application support folder:
Mac: ~/library/application support/capture one/keywords
Win: user\appdata\local\capture one\keywordlibraries
Any Keyword Library saved in these directories will be automatically loaded into created or opened documents.
