[Request] Visual difference between tags that have all items cheked and those with unchecked items


#1

The tag browser is a very useful feature. If there is a tag that has all the items checked, and there is another tag that has all or few items unchecked. Currently, there is no way to discern between them visually.

My request is to add such a feature. If a competed tag can get a strikethrough line over it in the tag browser, it would be enough for my use case.

Personally, I don’t like how tags are ordered to include checked items.

If a tag has 1 unchecked item, and another has 2 checked items, you see the fully-checked-off tags at the top of the list. But who wants that? It should number by unchecked items only and give two numbers (1,0) or (0,2).

However, I just run “Delete checked items” to fix the issue. I don’t care to keep record of the past.


#3

Could you tell me a little more about your use case? Sounds like you’re trying to look up counts of checked vs unchecked items, but I’m not sure how strongly it relates to the tag pane.

Would like to hear more about the problem; for now what I’m seeing a proposed solution.

@Erica, I have a couple of projects. Some get their documents. Most get into a single “Projects” file. I organize my tasks using tags like soon, high-priority, back-burner etc.

Some tags are specific to projects like feature-billing-reminder or add-script.

Navigating articles through documents or bookmarks pane is not efficient for me. But the tags feature is handy. Via tags browser, I can see which tasks I have to handle immediately and which I can put off, etc.

If I have a way to filtering out tags that are complete, it will make navigation via tags more efficient.

Sounds like you’re trying to look up counts of checked versus unchecked items, but I’m not sure how strongly it relates to the tag pane.

No. I am looking for a strike-through on completed tags. Counts feature would be useful, but it would still require me to do filtering mentally.

What @BigChungus has suggested would also be useful as long as I can get visually easy to see an indicator of done vs. undone tags.
