Tag Menu

Post by 8806883@gmail.com » Sat Dec 14, 2019 12:22 am

When I choose all fonts and then go to my tag menu to narrow it down, all is well until I uncheck my choice to go back to the view all fonts and tags. Usually, when I unchecked any tags all my fonts would appear again (if highlighted in the View panel) and my tag menu would repopulate with all tags available to choose from. Lately, inconsistently but often, when I uncheck my tag the tag menu doesn't repopulate. The only way I can get all tags available (so I can search again) is to shut the program down and reopen it.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? I've attached pictures - Capture.png is of the reduced list when it won't restore (it stays at the list from prior search) and Capture2.png is what it looks like when I restart the program.

You do not seem to have enabled a Tag in your tag search. This is what happens for me:

Library
Library.png
Library.png (94.78 KiB) Viewed 1832 times
Tagged with Download (Note the Green Button)
Tagged.png
Tagged.png (107.02 KiB) Viewed 1832 times
Tag Deselected

I than have to select the Library View again to view all of my fonts.

I do go back to my full Library view whenever it happens, but sometimes it won't reload all the available tags. Like I said, it's sporadic. I did just download an update yesterday so I'll just proceed and see if it happens again. It seems to only happen when I've been in the program for an extended period of time tagging and organizing. Thanks for the feedback though - much appreciated!

It might be a timing issue, but it will be hard to reproduce and find the exact cause of this problem.

Do you double-click the icon balls when using the tag search?

We might have located a timing issue that could cause this behaviour. We will release an update with a fix soon.
