24 Feb ‘Codings’ and Our Improved Tagging System

We’ve created a new category of ‘tags’ called ‘codings’ A coding is a special tag that is pinned/unpinned (i.e. toggled on/off) by clicking its button.  When unpinned (i.e. turned off), the coding’s button changes color, but remains visible.   In contrast, with regular tags the button disappears when deactivated.   Here, the first 4 buttons are codings the last green one is a regular tag. The coding outlined with a red box is 'unpinned'. [Note: GoldFynch has had a 'codings' system for a while, but only for fixed categories. Our rebooted version is much more versatile.]  You can apply codings as quickly as tags.  They’re in the tag pane,...
