Just been fiddling round with tagging in Houdahspot and filr.
No problem if I tag something (openmeta) and then import it into eaglefiler. Tags are preserved.
If however I tag something that is already in eaglefiler (using eg filr via the finder) and then open eaglefiler, the file is scanned, the openmeta tags are removed and it is tagged ‘unread’.
I stopped using eaglefiler when I used to forget and edit files outside the program, causing problems. i started using it again when i could do this with impunity - but this problem ?bug? is similar.
