Keywords--Obsolete and Lame, Lame, Lame

TR Endnote keyword cell is obsolete and painfully lame. Suggest you make this a much more robust tool for data mining. Although tags would be an improvement, I believe a better solution would be a solution much like the approach used by Apple’s Aperture app. Their approach automatically alphabetizes keywords upon entry. You might improve on their work by automatically eliminating duplicate entries.

As for searching in Aperture, the user is presented with a palette of keyword options from which to choose with the usual meta-choice between “ALL” or “ANY”.

The Apple Aperture approach is intuitive and just plain elegant. Perhaps its time for TR to move out of its color-coordinated functionality comfort zone and reach for something truly awsome like functional elegance.

Thank you for considering this suggestion.
