I’m in the process of importing a huge number of files from finder and noticed that finder tags are imported. Is there a way to disable the finder tags import to DT tags? (I mean: I use finder tags basically to mark a status and this metadata is no more useful while data is imported in DT)
There used to be a hidden preference that would toggle the import of Finder tags, but I just tried it and it doesn’t appear to work anymore-not sure what changed there. Assuming that the command is indeed now non-functional, you could always delete the tags after importing.
The hidden preference “DisableFinderTags” disables only exporting of Finder tags.
Got it. The Hidden Preferences section in the manual then needs updating:
Ok, so I guess it’s not possible?
No, it’s not possible currently.
