lisec 282 Posted August 20, 2016 Share Posted August 20, 2016 I played around with "Automatically select child-tags" and I'm liking this new way of doing things, but I can't for the life of me figure out why it might be useful. I assumed that part of the charm of selecting the child tags was to quickly limit a search to items that include those tags. In the attached picture, I show how I selected the parent "Appetizers & Sides" to quickly get all files tagged with "appetizer" or "bread" or "tapas", etc. (181 files). Now that all those appetizers and sides were selected, I wanted to search for the word salami within those files. That isn't what happened when I added the word "salami" to my search. Instead it showed those same 181 files tagged with the children and then it added all files in the entire database that include the word salami (63), giving me a total of 239 files. If you can't search within the selection, what is the point of selecting those child-tags? Link to comment
