This feature is built into the address bar. All you need to do is type a +, a Space, and then each tag, separated by a Space. So, if you wanted to search for all items tagged with both "comedy" and "video", you would type + comedy video directly into the address bar.

Mavericks saves tags as extended attribute Now that the NDA is lifted: Mavericks saves tags as an extended attribute, in com.apple.metadata:_kMDItemUserTags. You can check them yourself by using the mdls command like this: mdls -name kMDItemUserTags Hello John Siracusa's epic review of OS X 10.9 describes the tag architecture in some detail.

I built a simple tool for tagging folders in Windows 10. This tool is based on the well-documented system file "desktop.ini" which was designed to customize many aspects of the folder's behavior in Microsoft Windows. The system file already has the folder-tagging capability built into it. For whatever reasons, Microsoft did not implement any user-...

From what I understood, each file has some metadata where tag information can be added No, that's not entirely correct. In earlier versions of Windows, this dialog box supported editing two kinds of metadata: stored within the file itself, in a way that depends on that file's specific format, and stored near the file (as an NTFS "alternate data stream&...

Nobody mentioned, but you definitely should look at extended file system attributes. ext4 for example has them. there are tools getfattr and setfattr to deal with them. Of course you will have to write some shell scripts to search for files tagged with sometag. Regarding mentioned questions all the answers are "Yes". You should only take into account that it'...

Thunderbird Tags can be edited with the builtin about:config editor. Go to Thunderbird Preferences (How you get there may change depending on your operating system) and on the "Advanced" tab click "Config Editor..." You will probably (unless you've done this before and disabled the warning) be presented with a warning that changing these configurations can ...

Suprised that nobody has mentioned TagSpaces. It meets all your requirements because tags are stored in the filename and TagSpaces is cross-platform.

I just found a workaround: you can go to "Options...", "Cover Art", then uncheck all coverart providers from the list, and click OK. Now you can still autotag the audio files, but Picard will not download any cover picture; from now on, you can drag and drop your own cover picture to the little black square on the bottom right corner (the one with a CD icon ...

ADVICE: if you move between NTFS and FAT, ...

I have been wanting to write some docs with the tag features found in vim help but I couldn't find anything online that had a simple and specific solution. So for anyone who may currently be looking for a quick solution to this, I will share what I have found. The quickest way to get up and running: Lets say you are working in an empty folder. If you ...

I had the same issue, not being able to edit my MP3 detail. I used MP3tag to resolve the issue (if you don't have it, then use this link MP3tag Free Download to download and install - its free and bug free) 1 - Open the MP3 with MP3tag 2 - Right clicked on the MP3 (a pop-up menu will appear) 3 - Select "Remove Tag" to remove the tag 4 - Save Now you ...

As it was said above, the Genre is really subjective so there may not be an automated way to tag mp3s with genres. One could possibly use a Discogs-enabled application for this, but do bear in mind that the online database is often ambiguous on the genre matter. Take for example the Lycantropy album by Patrick Wolf. Here, Discogs provides two entries for "...

It depends on the program and the file format. A few common examples include the following: Some programs will put metadata in the file itself, assuming that the file format supports metadata fields. The benefits include: The metadata is self-contained and thus portable (goes with the file). The metadata can be checked for validity since the file data is ...

The Quick Filter added in Thunderbird 3.1 also allows to search by tags.

Foobar2000 has a special renaming tool designed specially for this kind of thing. I'm pretty sure it's installed by default. Please follow these steps: Select the relevent album(s) (if using the library view) or the individual files (if using the playlist view) Right-click and choose File operations -> Rename to... For file name pattern, enter %title% (or ...

A bit late, but maybe this helps: kioclient5 ls tags:/MyTag or baloosearch //?query=tag:MyTag

I'm still very interested in an answer to my first question, but regarding my second question, I found out that the tags are actually saved in the "prefs.js" file, which is in the Thunderbird profile folder. Example for the tag "Important": user_pref("mailnews.tags.$label1.color", "#FF0000"); user_pref("mailnews.tags.$label1.tag", "Important"); (User-...

Windows doesn't have an option to let you "tag" applications for searching. However, here's a workaround that you can use: Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs, Find the shortcut to the program that you want, make a duplicate, and rename it to whatever you would like to search it by. Edit: Use C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\...

Without third-party tool(like tagspaces), we cannot tag folder directly.

The reason you couldn't add tags to this image file, is that the image must be of a format that supports metadata. The image you have chosen is of type BMP, which is an old format from a time that metadata was not invented yet. But you would get the same with GIF images. To have the Tags property enabled, you must use a format that supports them. Some such ...

Some other alternatives might be tagasistant, tagfs or dantalian.

You need not to migrate from your original operating system to satisfy your needs. Give TMSU a try. It is a FUSE mountable file system level solution to your problem, said to be cross platform compatible. I myself have not tested it yet.

Also there is Tagspaces but it modifies the file names according to the tags (e.g. Flower.jpg becomes Flower[flower image private fresh].jpg) which may or may not be a good thing. If you want to handle files/directories without modifying it directly (for people who do not use Tagspaces) - that won't be possible with this approach.

My thought was to use to 'goto file' feature, but it would require an implicit file extension and base path. Vim handles all of this: :setlocal path=. :setlocal suffixesadd=.txt (Best put these commands into a ~/.vim/ftplugin/DocuWiki.vim script.) Alternatively, you need a way to generate a tags database for source code. The format is simple, see :help ...

you basically deleted his user... and all files in it. The machine is not lost, but I am pretty sure the user data is gone for ever. The key options here was the use of the home directory of the user ~/* and the very wicked z option of shred shredhttp://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/hardy/en/man1/shred.1.html

Here's a start: Tag is a command line tool to manipulate tags in Mavericks. ExifTool is a command line tool for writing metadata into images. So you need to do something like this to glue them together in a command line function: function tags2metadata(){ tags=$(tag -N "$1"); exiftool -Keywords="${tags//,/, }" "$1"; tag --add "$...

You can add custom artwork by dragging and dropping an image file (preferable JPEG or PNG, but I think TIFF and GIF would work, too) to the cover art box. This is a somewhat hidden option. Proper custom cover art support for Picard has been requested for a while, but so far nobody really took up the task.

If that is a regular tag, Quod Libet should be able to display it. See their FAQ: How do I add custom / unusual tags to the columns in the song list? Right-click the song list header bar and select Customize Headers from the context menu (or click Preferences from the main menu and select Song List) In the Others field, click Edit, then Add, and ...
