Basically, if I put a =:tangle= header argument in a =#+PROPERTY= line at the top of the file or in a =:PROPERTIES:= block under a header, it is not picked up and the code blocks to which (I think) it should apply are not tangled. Only when I put a =:tangle= argument at the top of the source block itself is the source block tangled.

IIUC what you did, then yes and yes.

This is the accepted idiom:

#+PROPERTY: header-args :tangle yes

Remember that if you add or change that line you need to update with C-c C-c or `org-mode-restart'.

Maybe you omitted the `header-args'. That used to be correct syntax but was obsoleted some time back.

See (info "(org) Using Header Arguments")
