I have a problem that I hope DEVONthink can solve … the intuitive way does not work:
I select items, and as long as they have exactly the same tags, I can use the Info panel to remove such tags …
So far, so good.
But when I select items with a different set of tags, there will be NO tags listed at all in the Info panel - und therefore, I cannot remove those tags.
I would have expcted that for any selection, the tags shown would be those that ALL of the items have set!
Item 1, tags: a, b, c
Item 2, tags: a, b
Item 3, tags: a
After selecting those items, I would have expected the tag “a” to be shown in the Item panel, so that I can could remove it.
Don’t let your expectations lead you astray
DEVONthink has never worked this way so Development would have to assess this as a feature request.
PS: You should read our blog more often - also available in the View > Extras sidebar. This is yesterday’s blog post…
I was already fearing that I would need to do this by a script or smart rule or something.
But such a menu point with batch processing is fantastic
I searched for such an option but was searching for the word “tag” in the menus
Going to use this batch tool more often now!!!
You’re welcome and as I wrote in the post, it’s super useful for those occasional changes you need to make.
