Mobile Edition

The Tags field is an editable text box where you can type in a single word and perform search other entries by it. In version 4.9.2 added the ability to append tags when editing multiple entries. (Bill, can you test this as well? I selected two entries, tapped on edit, selected my test Tags field and entered a word. The tag was not added to either entry.)

Unique Selecting this option ensures that a tag entry will be unique. Can only be set in the Desktop edition.


A Tags field holds a set of values. A Tag is a word, so to express multiple words as a tag, one needs to defuse a plan where spaces delineate the words, but rather some other character like an underscore (_) or hyphen (-) can indicate a division among words. This example, "black swan" could be rendered as "black_swan" or "black-swan" (without the quotes). Some might use capitalization, like "blackSwan".
