Help! I can't rename tags anymore



Steps to reproduce

I am going in to rename tags by right clicking in the tag pane

Expected result

I expect to see a Dynalist right click menu that allows me to rename the tag

Actual result

Instead I get a browser right click menu, not the Dynalist right click menu


I am using a Macbook Air with MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 and I am running Dynalist in a Chrome Broswer v63.0.3239.132

Sorry to hear that!

You mentioned “can’t rename tags anymore”, so it used to work for you before? Did something change? Like did you install any new add-ons?

From our end, we didn’t make changes to this recently, and from my brief testing it seems to work.

I see in the screenshot “DEADLINE” seems to be selected, was that automatically selected by the browser?


I can reproduce this, but for me it only happens for tags listed under # All Tags!

It does, however, work like expected for all tags under # Document tags.


Hi Lucas

Since posting my query I have found the same. A rename tag function across all documents would be handy but I can work within this limitation.

Thanks for getting back to me and thanks for your work on Dynalist. It is the centre of my working universe and I couldn’t live without it now, I think.


Hi Peter,

Yeah, that’s what’s happening. Renaming currently only works on document-level tags, sorry about that!

And thanks @Lukas for being awesome again!
