Help with Tags: Tag list empty, yet plenty of tags used?

Hi,
I have a strange one. I have tons of tags that show up in my Tags column but if I want to open the tag list to search or edit a tag, it tells my tag list is empty??

Any ideas?
Thanks!

Re: File Info Tip: text format problem

It's ok, I can wait. I'm not familiar with scripts and I don't like running betas. No problem, it's not urgent. But thx for addressing it! :appl:

File Info Tip: text format problem

Hi, I'm having an odd problem with the File Info Tip on the Comment column. The text oddly goes to the next line, often in the middle of a word while there is plenty of space left. Yet it looks fine when I go to edit it? See below.... Notice how the word channel is split: c hannel And HighPass becom...

Re: Can Search be less 'strict'?

So why don't you just execute a less strict search I think the answer is pretty obvious... because I didn't know how to do what you describe. In fact, I see it works (thanks!) but I definitely don't understand it. What is the " : " and " & ", " > " (the * wildcard, I knew about) doing in the search...

Can Search be less 'strict'?

Hi, I was searching for a folder which had the words 'Black Box' in it. I knew I had it somewhere but it might have had some words before 'Black Box' so I couldn't just manually search alphabetically. So I used the Search function and in Name, I simply entered: black box (with Attributes set to Dire...

Where is the Tag List? (need to copy it to another PC)

Hi, I've changed PC and I'm moving my XYPlorer settings to the new PC. I've copied the tag.dat from the old to the new and that imports all my comments, tags, rating,....but not the Tag List itself?

Re: A way to merge content of two tag.dat files?

Great thx!
Searching tag.dat in the Help yields lots of results with a lot to read. If you know exactly what it is I should be reading, could you point me more precisely to where in the Help I should be looking?
Thanks!

A way to merge content of two tag.dat files?

Hi, I have several tag.dat files I've accumulated through various backups/restore. Is there a good and safe way of merging these files? My idea was to first get a big 'master' tag.dat file which contains all the tags and then, I believe there is some kind of cleanup tool in XY that will remove all o...
