Creating, assigning and deleting Tags with the Properties Panel

In this chapter you will learn how to create and assign tags to your items.  For the following example we will use the keyword tags.


 Adding a new keyword

The keyword list in the Properties PanelOnce you have selected an item in the browser, you can view its content in the metadata properties panel located on the right side of the Daminion workspace. 







In order to e.g. add another keyword, simply enter the keyword to be created in the “Add Tag…” field.


There as soon as you enter some text, Daminion checks whether this combination of letters already exists and displays all correspondences in a Drop-Down list. This will help you to recognize immediately, whether a particular keyword is possibly already assigned and is therefore already included in the database.

You can also add multiple tags simultaneously here by separating the words with a  comma.

When you have completed your keyword assignment, click at the bottom of the Properties panel on the “Save” button to apply your new keywords.

You can simplify the keyword assignment by double clicking into the “Add tag …” box.



Daminion opens then a drop-down list displaying all last assigned Tags. So you just need to select the desired keyword instead of retyping it again and again.










Removing a keyword

When you hover the mouse over one of the keywords, a small red x icon appears at the right side of the keyword.

Click on this icon to delete the keyword. The keyword is not deleted from the tag list, but only its allocation is removed from the item.

You can permanently delete tags only in the Catalog Tags panel. Do do this, navigate to the desired Tag at the Catalog Tags panel, select it and press the [DEL] key. Alternatively you can right click on the Tag and select the command “Delete” from the sub menu.




Assign Tags and Tag hierarchies via text input

If you want to assign multiple tags at once to an element, separate each keyword with a comma.

Example: “tree, house, street”

If the tags used are already available, they will be assigned directly, otherwise they will be automatically created.


If you want to assign a complete keyword hierarchy, enter the parent hierarchies separated in each case with a “\” character.
