Convert YAML Front Matter tags into DT tags

Keywords: Test #test

yields a keyword of Test #test, not two independent keywords.

Yes, the emboldening appears randomly – or at least the rationale is opaque to me. I hadn’t noticed whether it affected the outcome or no, so that’s useful to know, thanks.

In fact, I’ve just checked and removing the bold doesn’t add the properties. All very strange…

[Edit] Answered this before reading Christian’s post, which solves the problem!

Hi Christian,

Thanks – it does indeed work with no trailing spaces! I’ve been including them following advice (can’t remember where) that it’s less confusing on less capable markdown previewers, but I’m happy to drop them if it’s breaking DT3 features.

Many thanks again!

Thank you so much!!! It works. There were two things I didn’t know.

  1. Convert hashtags to tags under tools. That pulled in the YAML tags.
  2. The YAML tags have to be seperated by commas. Not by spaces. Otherwise DT reads them as one word. E.g “tags: yellow moon” is read as one tag …not two tags.

Is there a way in the “Global setup” of DT to automate the conversion of hashtags to tags? Or do I have to do it one by one? I don’t mind doing it one by one, but it would be great to be able to do it in bulk. Thanks.

Like the first entry besides “Tags:” here?

Also note this (from page 16 of the user guide (also available through the in-app Help)):

Hashtags do not support spaces in them and they should be listed on a separate line.
