delete from tag view

Deleting an item from EagleFiler from a Tag view simply removes the tag, rather than deleting the item!

  1. Make a new item, tag it ‘events’
  2. Go to the ‘event’ tag view
  3. Hit the delete key
  4. Look in the trash… where is it?
  5. Go to the ‘everything’ view and delete it again. Now it’s in the trash.

Perhaps a bug?


This is a documented feature: it’s an easy way to remove a tag. iTunes playlists work the same way. You can press Option-Delete to instead move the record to the trash.

aha. That’ll teach me to not check the docs. Thanks for the clarification.
