Entering free text in the cataloging utility is time-consuming
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.
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.

Change button in the metadata entry form is confusing
The change button in the Subject (topic) field is cumbersome...forcing you to retype the entire entry rather than make and save a small correction to existing text.

Adding CV terms to compressionType element makes all term selection options disappear
In technical metadata, where Descriptive "Type of Item" = Text,
I added the CV terms under compressionType. When I clicked submit, all selections went away: the CV terms just added, the "switch to free text box" option, and the "add/edit/delete terms" option.
When I exit from the record and return, the display reverts to how it was before I input the CV terms. There are "switch to free text box" and "add/edit/delete terms" options, but no CV terms.
This also happens when Descriptive "Type of Item" = "physical object" or "still Image"

Cannot add CV to all source types at the same time
I tried to add the analogDigitalFlag vocabulary once for all formats. First, I tried it for just one format. I got a dialog box saying "If you want the terms to apply to ALL source types, click Cancel, then go back and set sourceType to empty first."
However, when I clicked Cancel and set the sourceType to empty, the analogDigitalFlag element would not display.
