Hi Rebecca

1. You need to edit the SearchVList format statement (in Format->Format
Features). if this is not present already in the list, select Search
from Choose Feature, and VList from Affected component, and click add
format. Then you can edit it.
Add the description metadata element in []. eg if the description was in
dc.Description, add [dc.Description] to the format statement.

2. do you mean highlighted in the search results list, or highlighted in
the text when you view a document?
You can display keywords in search results list by doing the same thing
as for 1. PLease explain exactly what you are wanting.

3. This is a classifier setting. Are you using List classifier? Try
-bookshelf_type always option. (Design->Browsing classifiers, and edit
the subjects classifier).
