Working with the Folder Panel

If you have to work with lots of tags (thousands of keyword tags for example), your list can get very long when unfolded, and you may have to do a lot of scrolling up and down to find the keywords you want.

To save time, Daminion allows you to open a second, parallel Catalog Tags panel. You can then place the two panels next to each other so that the required areas are both accessible at the same time.

Launching the Folders Panel

To open the second folder panel: in the File menu, click Window -> Folders.

This will open the second folder tag panel, which by default displays the folder structure. You can move this tag window anywhere on the screen or dock it to a certain area on the screen.

To find out how to do this, please refer to Customizing the Window Layout.

In the following example, we have docked the second folder panel right next to the Catalog Tags panel.

The Folders Panel can display a maximum of two tag-categories. To display the desired tag category, click the little gear icon in the upper right corner of the title bar.

Select additional tag in the Folders Panel

In the submenu, click Show Additional Tag and select the desired tag category from the drop-down list. In our example we have chosen the Keyword tag.

As seen in the previous figure, you can display the RatingColor Label and Flag tags in the left panel and the keywords list on its own in the right panel. This allows you to jump back and forth within the keywords list without losing sight of the other tags.

Another possible option is to display the keywords list in both panels, where the left panel shows the top half and the right panel shows the bottom half of the list.

As for general tag management, both panels behave in exactly the same way. This means you can move tags back and forth between the panels, assign tags, rename, and delete or revoke assignments. This all works in exactly the same way in both panels.
