No, you should just check the specific tag.  If you go back to the top level 
in KPA and drill down into Locations, then France, you'll see that your 
images from Grenoble and Paris are both there.

I guess it might be a nice feature if the supercategories were automatically 
checked, perhaps with a grayed-out check to indicate that it's a "derived" 
check.  Anyone have any thoughts on that?

If your camera puts EXIF information in the images, and most do, KPA should be 
able to automatically extract the date and time information, so that part 
shouldn't have to be entered.  As for the Description, I'd put that in the 
Description field in KPA.  On the annotation dialog, it's the text box toward 
the upper right hand corner of the screen (unless you've moved or closed it).

Really?  I can type any part of the folder name.  To be precise, from 
the "Home" view, I click the "Folder" icon, then use the search entry bar at 
the top.

What version of KPA do you have, by the way?
