Me again, with another “tags vs groups” issue in DT 3.x
When I’m working with items in a group, the ‘Move to trash’ and ‘Move all instances to trash’ commands work as expected (with my prior note about “instances” really being just “replicants”).
But when working with items in a group, things get a bit odd. If I choose a tag and then right-click an item, there is a ‘Move to trash’ command. But what does that command actually do? It removes the tag from the item.
I think this is pretty odd. Yes, I know what’s going on internally (the tag is just a disguised replicant, and move to trash moves the replicant etc). But it’s still odd to have ‘Move to Trash’ do that. Really the command should be ‘Remove tag’. I suspect that’s tricky to implement, as you would need to know the containing group, but it makes much more sense.
Is this just cosmetics? Nope. I get burned by this all the time. When I’m working in a group, ‘Move to trash’ does what I expect; it deletes the item (I rarely use replicants). But when I’m in a tag, it’s easy to forget I’m in “tag mode”, and I choose ‘Move to Trash’ and the item appears to vanish. But of course it’s just thrown the tag away.
Would be nice to see ‘Remove tag’ instead of ‘Move to trash’ when working in a group; makes much more sense to me.
