Lightroom: Is it a collection, or a collection set?

Question: Is it a collection, or a collection set? : Answer: Both, sorta... Let me explain: It was a collection, which was deleted, and then in short order (via a plugin), a collection set was created with the same name. Seems not all parts of Lightroom "got the memo". Note: the transaction to

Lightroom: Allow Moving or Copying of Collections into Publish Collections

Currently there is no way to copy a collection (or worse an entire hieararchy of collections and collection sets) into Publish Collections. I usually don't want to manage all of my collection sets as Publish collections but if I later decide to publish a collection I have to recreate it in Publish.

Lightroom: Allow all Collections to Contain Images and other Collections

Currently only Collection Sets can contain other collections, and Collection Sets can't contain images. It would be much simpler for all Collections to be able to contain both Images and Other Collections. This is how almost any other hierarchical system of folders works in any windows or mac softwa

LIGHTROOM: Selection is lost when creating a collection set

After selecting images (for a selection), I often want to create a Collection Set first. When I create the new collection set, my selection is lost. The back-button in Filmstrip does not bring back my selection, and I have to start all over.

LIGHTROOM - Add "Publish Collection Set" and "Collection Set" to Smart Collection rules

I have many publish services in LR for various photo sharing sites I use. Most all of these allow some sort of hierarchical folder structure for organizing images on those websites. In LR this folder structure shows up in the Publish panel as "Collection Sets" where each leg culminates with a "Pub

Lightroom: Is it possible to add photos to an existing collection on import?

I'd like to see the ability to import into an existing collection, much like the application of a preset to an import. I teach my students to immediately make a collection upon import, and with this feature, they could specify all recursive imports to feed this collection.

Lightroom SDK: collection set shows photos, but child collections do not

This happens when add-photos collection method is called after remove-all-photos in the same with-write-access-do call, for example - the Changed Photos collection has 3 photos, but none are shown unless I select the parent collection set: If I select RC xEmP (Dev) collection set then all photos

LR Combining collections and collection sets for simplicity, flexibility and less restriction

I've long wondered what the idea behind the collection set is? Why not just combine the collection set and the collection, so that it would behave like a "normal" folder we all know? (i.e. the ability to contain files and other folders - which can contain other files/folders and so on). If this was
