What is shown:

  1. Notice the file name 2020-03-16 Lunch menu - Trattoria -- public.pdf.
  2. A new level 3 TagTrees hierarchy is generated.
  3. Within the TagTrees folder "public", the linked file is located.
  4. From the context menu, the "filetags" feature is invoked while the file is selected.
  5. In the filetags dialog, "-public", "anewtag" and "thisiscool" is entered.
  6. The result is shown.
    • Notice the tag removal with prepended - as explained in a previous demo step.
    • Notice that arbitrary tags may be entered and not just pre-defined ones from within .filetags file.
    • Changing tags is applied to the linked file in the TagTrees as well as the original file.
      • The linked file does not get moved within the TagTrees to update the situation. If you need an updated TagTrees, please close the Explorer window and re-genrate a new one.

This is an awesome way of re-tagging sets of files.
