There might be an obvious fix to this but I haven’t encountered it yet. Basically, a lot of the files (ie. academic articles) that I import have pre-existing tags. These tags are often quite similar to the tags I already have in my library, but due to small differences in their names they end up as separate tags. So in my library I get a bunch of similar but separate tags that are annoying to search for. Think "government, “Government,” “theory of government,” “Governments,” etc.
Is there a way to create an automatic/automated process by which all similar tags are grouped into one? I don’t mind setting this up manually, but I would like to do it once and never again. I saw somewhere that I could use aliases to make this work (ie. including all the alternatives to “Government” in the aliases) but this didn’t work. The alternative is to go through these tag variations myself and grouping them manually, but that seems like a waste of time.
Thanks in advance!
