How long is it since you updated your vault or other backup?
If recently use your vault to get the keywords back.
Unsure how to do this, ask before doing anything as you may loose any work you have added to your library since your last backup.

Mine got deleted too. I opened the Keyword HUD and a bunch of keywords (folders and subfolders) were highlighted. First time I've seen that happen. I went to drag a keyword to an image and it looked like it was going to drag all the highlighted ones. So I put the mouse back over the keyword HUD and let go. To my surprise, several folders full of keywords (and their folders) got deleted and many of the other keywords were moved out of their folders. I guess ESC would have been the better choice (hindsight is 20:20) but, still, what the heck was that all about?
My images still have the keywords and the keywords show up in the Search box but if I search on any of those keywords, no images are found. I'm not adverse to keying them all back in again but that doesn't seem to work. I tried re-typing one into the HUD but, again, no images have that keyword (even though many of them actually do).
I have a relatively recent vault. Rather than restoring everything, how can I restore the keywords only? Can I simply replace the Keywords.plist file with the one from the vault? I'd try myself instead of asking but I don't want to make things worse.

Restoring keywords didn't work.Restored entire library (well,almost ... it is still processing previews). Looks like that worked. Good thing I back up to a vault every time I add images. I'll check it out tomorrow when it is complete.
