Duplicated tags

Often when I create items in DTTG, the existing tags aren’t suggested as I type them. I’ll have to type them out completely. But then I got duplicated tags that spell exactly the same, under the same database.

Is there anything I’m doing wrong or is this a bug?

During a quick test, DTTG showed me pre-existing tags after I had typed the third letter; it takes up to approx. a second to do so, though. The behaviour isn’t as I had expected, though - I also get tags shown which aren’t obviously related (as subject matter goes, they are related - but not technically); also, in the following example, if I type a fourth or fifth letter and then delete that/those letters, going back to three letters, the tag suggestions change. I’m not sure this is intended behaviour (but I’m also not sure it is related to your query) - does DTTG use some form of AI to guess relevant tags?

Well the issue I mentioned doesn’t happen all the time either. But when it happens, I can’t even get rid of the duplicates.

I’ve seen your issue as well. It’s really inconsistent what tags are suggested.

These duplicated tags also give me duplicated suggestions…

Maybe “triplicated”?

Are there items in the duplicate Tags in the database in question?


If you’re running DEVONthink, do you see the duplicated tags there?


I would suggest merging the duplicate tags in a database in DEVONthink.

Also, if you have a way to consistently reproduce duplicate tags in DEVONthink To Go, let us know steps to follow.

Can you point me to the steps to merge the tags? I can’t seem to do it in DTTG.

It’s not possible in DEVONthink To Go. I referred to DEVONthink.
