I was surprised that selecting first a folder and then a tag (in 1.4.14) did not show me all only the records with the selected tag in the select folder, but rather all record with the selected tag.
Tags and folders seem to be very similar (from the user’s point of view). The main differences seems to be that a record cannot be in more than one folder, deleting a folder also deletes any enclosed records, and the dragging a record in a folder to another library does not necessarily preserve the folder structure. Is that it? If so, I don’t really understand the use-case for folders rather than tags. Is it just to accommodate people who are more familiar with folders than tags?
What I was originally trying to do was divide a library into sections. I hoped to place projects in folders and use tags for categories (e.g., meetings, letters, notes, etc.). Then to select all of the letters from a given project, I hoped to select the appropriate folder and the “letters” tag. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this? Smart folders and “compound tags” containing both the project and the category are too awkward.
