Use Tags Efficiently

March 5, 2012 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

While tags and groups are technically the same, their different way of presentation can be more flexible, especially in large DEVONthink knowledge collection spreading out in many directions. Using the tags bar (which you show and hide with View > Show/Hide Tags) you quickly add single tags to documents or remove them. Automatic completion makes adding already known tags easy.

To select documents that have one or more tags assigned to them, either use the tag view (View > as Tags) or, even better, create a smart group (Data > New > Smart Group) that always contain all matching items completely automatically.
