Aliases and Tags

Hello,

I’ve searched and found a few references to using tags as a replacement for aliases. I’d like to have one file imported into Eagle Filer and have it appear in two folders. Like, one location is the permanent home of a document but it needs to live in another project folder while it is being actively worked on. When it’s completed, it will be removed from the project folder. I can’t get my head around using tags to do this and I also see references to an alias-type feature for a future version. Any hints?

If you use tags to represent your projects, you can put your file in its permanent folder and also assign it the tag so that it shows up in the project. Depending on your workflow, this can work really well or not at all. I don’t think this is a replacement for links/aliases and would still like to add that feature in a future version.
