Filter information by tags

Postby nym » Fri Apr 23, 2010 6:42 pm

Greetings,

The ability to see all of my books filtered by individual tags (or possible by other information) would be very useful. Mendeley has a similar feature, for example. Also I would like to manage my tags (say for mass editing).

Thank you.

You can select the 'Tags' from the little search menu (accessed via the magnifying glass in the search field) and that way filter your collection only by specific tag searches.
The multiple edit window (which automatically appears when you select more than one entry and choose 'Edit') allows you to manage tags for many entries at once.

Your solution is perfect, but only in cases, when there are only relatively few tags (when you know all of your tags). I have a rather large research library in pdfs, and will have hundreds of tags. Let me redefine my previous post: I would like to have a complete/full list (of course clickable) of all my tags. It would serve as an subject index.

Thanks.

Ooh - that's a good idea! I'd like that too! :) I use the IMDb tags and there are sometimes over a hundred tags for a movie - some are useful and some aren't - I'd like an easy way to edit them too. Great idea. No idea if it's possible of course, but a great idea.

Kind regards,

Keith
