Entering free text in the cataloging utility is time-consuming

Description

When only one keyword is entered the keyword is not visible later on in edit mode unless you hit the drop down arrow and check the terms. But when multiple keywords are entered, a list is visible of those entered.

Many fields, including the Subject (topic) field, force you to select the "switch to free text box" option rather than allowing you to click into the field and begin typing. This is a small but time-consuming issue when entering multiple keywords.

I just tested this in R6.1 and the bug entry does not make any sense any more.
