I made the mistake of trying out the application “Doo”, which added a bunch of really stupid OpenMeta tags to my collection of PDFs. The folder of PDFs is indexed by DevonThink, so DevonThink now has a tags that I just don’t want (e.g., “?Of”). However, when I remove a tag, I find the PDFs upon which it had been inflicted go into the trash. From doing a Get Info, it doesn’t look like they have duplicates or replicants elsewhere, so it seems like the files have been removed from my DT database.
Surely, I am missing something. Does removing a tag really remove files it had been attached to? If so, am I stuck with these stupid tags forever?
Thanks for the help?
