Hi Michael

Are you trying to do hierarchical metadata (e.g. Category 1|Subcategory
2| Subcategory 3) or multi valued metadata (e.g. several subjects for
one document)?

For multi valued metadata, you assign separate values to separate fields
(use Enter in GLI to get another blank field).
Hierarchy and AZCompactList should classify the document on each value,
so if a document had three subjects, it would appear in the subject
hierarchy three times.

To display all values of a multi valued metadata field at once, use e.g.

For hierarchical metadata, you use a | to separate the values, then use
Hierarchy classifier to build the hierarchy.
You should get a new bookshelf for each part of the hierarchy.
