Hierarchical keywords are written in a much more logical (and visually obvious) manner in Lightroom 5.
For example if we have the parent keyword “Flower” and want to add the child keyword “Rose” it would be represented as:
Flower > Rose
In addition, it can also be written as:
Rose < Flower
They both result in the same keywords applied, with Flower as the parent and Rose as the child (notice that the “>” is changing direction between the two examples).
