Scan and report tags - help please


I would like to be able to have a button that scans all used tags in a folder and then creates a simple list of these tags to aid with consistency of tagging.

I am not sure where to start. Any help much appreciated. :slight_smile:

You could do that using a fairly simple script that loops through the files, builds a list of tags, and then displays them in a message box or even a custom dialog box.

If the files aren't using more than one tab per file then you could also group by the tags column to get a quick overview of which tags are being used, since each tag will create a separate group.

Thanks Leo

...when you say simple, how simple? :laughing: I have made the "hello world" script!

Should be simple if you know a little scripting.

The default script you get when you create a new button and put it into script mode will show how to loop through the selected files.

The example code here should help with the tags:

We can help with anything else if you get stuck.
