Re: Can't find tag cloud in 1.3


Hi again Danila :)

I use them in a very similar way. :) I hope I still can, and I'm just
doing something wrong, because right now I can't find any way to
continue using tags this way. The only way I have to see tags right
now is to go to an  individual entry and look at the side panel.

Having no way to get a complete list of the tags used in the journal,
they've become useful only as margin notes to the entry, not for
organization. :(

Yes, I really like that too.

I've tried adding new tags to some entries in 1.3 to make sure it's
not just a compatibility thing (tags vs categories) from my 1.2
notebooks, and the newly added tags are not appearing in the word
cloud either. Maybe I should be opening a bug report?

Then I am still looking for it. I won't give up! XD
