Say, I have a tag [i]peter[/i] and a tag [i]friend[/i] in my database life and I would like that always when I tag a record with [i]peter[/i] automatically the tag [i]friend[/i] is applied. For this I want to make [i]peter[/i] a subtag of [i]friend[/i].
And that’s easy: Expand all tags in the main Group/Tag/Searches pane in the main window and drag tag [i]peter[/i] on top of tag friend. So far so good.
This method however becomes pretty difficult when you have many, many tags (more than a screen full in the expanded tags list). What to do then? Here is what I do:
- I position the expanded tags-list in the database, so that the tag I want to drop onto (e.g. [i]friend[/i]) is visible.
- I open the floating Groups&Tags panel,
- find the the tag I want to move ([i]peter[/i]) and
- drag [i]peter[/i] from the floating panel over to [i]friend[/i] in the main window.
This works, but it is firstly quite cumbersome and secondly goes easily wrong, because I might have the tag [i]peter[/i] as well in another database (say, work) and in the floating panel I have to make sure I am operating on the correct database to expand their tags.)
Do my big question: [i]Is there an easier way to do this?[/i]
