Set Tag functionality
« on: December 07, 2001, 07:36:55 am »
While trying to get a handle on what EA is capable of, I ran across a menu option called 'Set Tag' and its companions 'Clear Tag' and 'Clear all Tags'.  Whenever a tag is set, a red triangle appears above the tagged object.

What can be done to an object or group of objects that have been tagged?

Thanks - Steve

The purpose of the little red triangle is to provide a visual prompt to you.  In the past we have used it on objects that are marked for deletion or require some kind of action performed on them.  

You can use this tagged status on the object search screen, search for Tagged, Not Tagged and Both.

We are actually planning to change the name of 'Tagged' to something more meaningful.  An object can have a status of Tagged, it also can have tagged values and finally there is a tag field.  So in all, tag is used too offen, we are looking at reducing the confusion in this matter for a future version.

Hope this helps.
