From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Subject: Re: Automatic global tag list? Date: Tue, 23 Nov 2010 09:59:56 -0800 (PST) [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) In-Reply-To: <A704FE45-1022-42F0-8B02-9B71C88A4B4A@gmail.com> I just want to keep tag names consistent across files and I want to know what tags are in use in all files as I add a tag. However, it's too tedious to manually maintain org-tag-alist because I use a large and arbitrary number of tags at any given time. It would also be great if there was a way to list all tags in global use. (I'm thinking something like a tag cloud here.) BTW, where is the documentation? I'm using orgmode 7.03, perhaps it's not documented there?
