Renaming multiple tags

I have many tags imported from Evernote. They had their own specific syntax (+ and > at the beginning of each tag). Is it possible to automatically rename tags (remove leading +> characters in each of the tags)?

My solution would be an applescript
but someday I’ll learn that regular expression stuff

Sure there is…
Select the tags group.
Select a tag to modify.
Open Tools > Batch Process.

You could use Scan Text > String like so…

The asterisk is matched and preserved. The preceding character, here a #, is removed.
The name change is the Insert Placeholder > Document String from the contextual menu.

Or you could use a Scan Name > Regular Expression like this…

Also, see this recent blog post regarding batch processing…


Thank you very much! It works.

Kind regard,

You’re very welcome :slight_smile:
