Tags give incorrect totals

Postby RSchiaffino » Thu Aug 27, 2015 2:10 am

Please see the attached screenshot.

How does this happen:

1) Add e tag (and subtag) to a number of notes (e.g. "Project/Questions/Not_Asked")
2) Select some or all the notes with this tag, right click, select Tag...
3) In the Add tags box, add a suitable subtag with the same chain of upper level tags (e.g. "Project/Questions/Asked")
4) In the Remove tags box, Indicate the original tag ("Project/Questions/Not_Asked").

The net effect should be that the notes that were tagged "Project/Questions/Not_Asked" are now tagged "Project/Questions/Asked". And they are, indeed now tagged this way.

However, the counts on the tag sidebar now are all wrong: "All" gives the correct total, but "Project" now gives a total without the total for "Project/Questions/Asked", and "Questions" does not include in the total the ...Questions/Asked.

This is a serious bug that impact the usability and reliability of tagging in CN. If I remember correctly, it happened in previous versions, but I believe it had been corrected. Now it is back.

Hi Alex,

I'll download and install the new beta version immediately, thank you!

One thing I noticed (before installing the new beta): I was able to "fix" the issue by exporting all the notes in the section, deleting them and then reimporting them - the imported notes behaved correctly (i.e., correct totals).

Hi Alex,

I've just insalled the new beta... seems to be working like e charm: I've renamed a bunch of tags, and now the totals display correctly immediately

Thank you!
