I have some tags that I want to delete because they are spelled incorrectly. However, they do not show up in the HoudahSpot tray where they can be deleted with a minus sign because the tray is already filled with other tags. Is there a way to delete these "bad" tags?

Thanks,

Fred Wolfe

Hi!

You cannot simply delete the tags. You need to remove the tags from files that are tagged with the erroneous tags.

Use HoudahSpot to search for files with the bad tags and then use the Tray to re-tag those with the correct tags.

But it doesn't seem to work. I have a bad tag:
fibromya;gia

It shows up when I am using the tray to tag. But when I search for it it is not found, nor is ";" found. 

The reason it is important to me is that as long as it shows up in the tray I may accidentally use it as a tag.

Hi!

Sorry for the delayed reply.

If you have files tagged with "fibromya;gia" they should show when searching for "Tags contains fibromya;gia" or "Tags contains ;". If no files show up, you have already corrected the tagging on all files.

You may remove a tag from the Tray by selecting it and hitting the "-" button at the bottom of the Tray window.

In addition to your suggestion, I had to increase the number of tags shown in the tray (in the preferences) in order to be able to see the "bad" tag. Once I did that I was able to delete the tag. So for others who may have had similar problems, you may need to increase the number of tags shown.
