Tag sorting
« on: October 17, 2008, 05:17:44 PM »
Tags don't seem to be sorted in a specific order. Is there a possibility to sort them alphabetically? Can we make this by default?

Still no change in RC3. Tags seem to be ordered by ID in right sidebar. Not very usful.

Hi martin,

Currently, tags are ordered by count. The most used tag appears first on the list, the least used tags appear at the end of the list. The list doesn't change dynamically, it only changes when you refresh the Tag Panel.

Try this (assuming there's no tags): tag an object with 'tag1'. 'tag1' appears first on the Tag Panel. Tag an object with 'tag2'. 'tag2' is added to the end of the Tag Panel. Tag another object with 'tag2' and refresh the Tag Panel. Now 'tag2' appears at the top of the Tag Panel.

I think that ordering tags by how often they are used can be very useful, but also ordering by name has its use too. The ideal case would be to allow changing the order of the tag panel with a toolbar button.

I agree.

So the problem currently is simply that you can not see why the tags are ordered the way they are. So adding the count would help:

Tag A (12)
Tag X (7)
Tag B (5)
Tag G (1)

What do you think?

It is an interesting suggestion.
I'll schedule it for 1.1.
Thanks you Martin!

Nice to see I'm not the only one to see this.
We have now something like 20 tags (we even tag the people on tasks to filter quickly) and when the list gets long, it gets difficult to use tags. Both solutions, by popularity and alphabetically would be great.
