I know that true hierarchical keywords don't exist in Aperture. But when I assign keywords using the Keyword Controls or dragging from the HUD, the parent (men or women) is "attached" so you can search for the one you want.
I want to be able to assign the proper keywords using Batch Change or in a metadata preset during import. But I have yet to find a way to do this. Is there some hidden syntax for this? Or is it one of those impossible things in Aperture's current (and rather limited) keyword handling?
