Steps to reproduce
- Import data with tags of varying case (e.g., from Workflowy), or:
- Create items with mix of #someTag vs. #SomeTag
- Observe how both now show up in auto-completion and tag pane, as if they are different things.
Only to have the one instance of the tag show up (probably first), not to have duplicates.
Many duplicate tags now show up in auto-completion and tag pane.
Desktop browser, not platform-specific.
For search, searching for #someTag also finds/highlights instances #SomeTag, so case sensitivity is not consistently enforced.
WF indexed tags case-insensitive, so I have a large mix of imported data. Cleaning it all up is difficult, there’s no search/replace. Depending on place in a sentence, I have #Demo and #demo, for example, but it’s the same tag! Now I cannot click on a single tag to find all its instances, and auto-completion is cluttered.
I propose all tags are indexed lower-case, and their used display is the first instance found in the document (since tag list is updated all the time with changes anyway).
Hopefully no one should be relying on current behavior. Previous posts, such as this one, never mentioned relying on case sensitivity.
