okay, i have two quick questions for you all. some background: i’m working on a book and process a LOT of documents through lexis/feedly, which then are processed through hazel and end up in dt3 to be sorted in various databases. one thing that hazel does is find keywords in my documents and tag documents that will then go into dt3. i have two questions:
let’s say i have a dt3 database called media, which has a tag called “abc.” that tag has an alias, “american broadcasting company”. a document is imported to the inbox with the tag “american broadcasting company.” i then move that document to the media database. i would expect that tag to become abc. but instead it seems to create a new tag in media, american broadcasting company, which confuses the system. is there an answer to this problem?
is there any plan to make aliases follow the same logic as tags? in other words, tags can have a comma and aliases cannot. if this seems like a rare issue, i’d just flag that i’d bet a lot of people (including me) tag things with locations – so “city, st”, and i’d like to, for example, have a tag that says “fulton county, ga” but also have it find references of “fulton county, georgia.” and i don’t want to do smart rules for every county that has a repeat name (for example, maybe there’s a fulton county in georgia AND in north carolina so i couldn’t just use the alias fulton county). anyway, that’s a random example, but would love to know if there’s a plan to fix it so only semi-colons separate aliases. maybe it could be a preference?
anyway, those are my questions. i’ve had a lot of alias ones because i’m on a tear lately! thanks!
