While tagging files in GoldFynch, you can attach ‘notes’ to the tags and quick tags you assign to files. This allows you to provide additional context for why a tag is being applied, or convey any other relevant information to the file(s).
Enabling tag notes for a tag
Tags do not collect notes by default. To enable note collection for a tag:
Step 1. Go to the ‘Tags’ view by clicking on the button in the left panel
Step 2. Click on the '

If you assign a tag that requires notes to a file, you will not be able to move beyond step 2 above until you enter a note; the

NOTE: If you select more than one file while applying a note, all selected files which do not already have that tag with a note will be assigned the tag and the note you entered. Files which have notes for that tag will keep their original note.
When assigning multiple tags that require notes, you will be able to enter a separate note for each tag.
Viewing tag notes
To view a tag note, just hover the mouse cursor over the tag and the note will be displayed in a window.
In the ‘Docs’ view, all tags notes attached to the tags of a file are listed in the right panel:
