The list of available tags is displayed in the Tagging panel. Tags in use in the current scene are listed in the Current Scene Tags area of the Tagging Panel. Further, you define and validate scene-level tags in the Tagging panel.

The tagging panel also helps you manually tag words and phrases, and provides you with options to display tagged words and phrases.

View tagging panel

  1. In the Authoring view, select View > Tagging Panel.

    Tags in use in the document are listed at the top in alphabetical order. Unused tags are listed below them in alphabetical order. The frequency occurence of the tag in the scene is mentioned next to the tag name.

Add/delete tags

You can add/delete tags directly to the Tagging panel only if a tag list is not assigned to the project. Do the following to create a tag:

  1. Enter the name of the tag in the field in the tagging panel.

  2. Click Create.

Tip: To remove a tag, simply click the X icon next to it in the All Tags list.

note: When no tag list is associated, changes to the tags in the tagging panel affect only the script being edited. When you open a new script, the original tag list is displayed.

If a tag list is assigned to the project, follow these steps instead:

  1. Select Edit > Tag List.

  2. Modify the tag list.

  3. Click OK.

Manage tag-items at a scene level

Add tag items

  1. In the Tagging panel, click Edit.

  2. Select a tag from the list. This is the tag to which you’ll add tag items.

  3. Start entering tag items in the text field. Story will autocomplete your entries if a tag item list is associated with the project.

  4. Click Add.

  5. Repeat steps 2-3 to add more tag items.

  6. Click Close to dismiss the dialog box.

Remove tag items

  1. In the Tagging panel. click Edit.

  2. Expand a tag to view the tag items associated with it.

  3. Select a tag item and click X next to it.

    note: To delete all tag items from the current scene, click Remove All Tags.

  4. Click Close to dismiss the dialog box.

Manage word/phrase-level tagging

Word- or phrase-level tag items for available tags are automatically added as scene-level tag items.

Perform word/phrase-level autotagging

Note:

Autotagging is available only for users working in the EN_US and EN_GB locales.

Ensure that you are online before you auto-tag a script. You cannot auto-tag scripts in the offline mode.

  1. Select File > Tagging > Start Autotagging. Alternatively use the options menu in the tagging panel.

  2. Click Start Auto Tagging in the Start Autotagging dialog box.

    The script is locked, and you cannot edit the script until autotagging is complete. A message appears in the status bar informing you that autotagging is in progress when you try to edit the document.

    Closing or deleting a script for which you have initiated the tagging process does not stop autotagging. When you open the document later, the tags are displayed in the document if autotagging is complete.

A confirmation message appears after auto-tagging is complete. The time to complete auto-tagging depends on the length of the script, and the load on the server.

Words in a document that are tagged appear bold if the Bold option is enabled in the tagging panel. Also, the Current Scene Tags area in the Tagging panel is automatically updated. When you hover the mouse over a tagged word or phrase, the tag information is displayed.

Note:

After auto tagging, if Adobe Story finds elements in your script that map to the deleted tags, you are prompted to restore the tags. Click Yes in the Add To Taglist dialog if you want Adobe Story to restore the deleted tags and use them for tagging. If you select No, elements corresponding to the deleted tags are not auto tagged.

Manually tag words or phrases

  1. In the Authoring view, select View > Tagging Panel.

  2. Select the word or phrase that you want to tag. If a word or phrase has been tagged previously, the new tag is appended to the tag list for the word or phrase.

  3. In the Add Tag Items dialog, select the tag to which you want to add the selected word as a tag item.

  4. Click Add and then click Close to dismiss the dialog.

  5. (Optional) Click the color palette icon, and choose a color for the selected tag. All words and phrases with the tag appear in the specified color. If you have applied multiple tags to a word or phrase, the color of the last applied tag is used. If you apply a tag to a word in a tagged phrase, the tag color is applied only to the word.

  6. Do one of the following:

    • Select Show In Bold if you want the tagged words or phrases to be displayed in bold.

    • Select Show Color if you want Adobe Story to display the selected color for the tagged words or phrases. The color of the last applied tag is displayed.

You can tag a word or phrase with more than one tag. Repeat the procedure to add multiple tags to a word or phrase.

Note:

You can tag a series of words. When you separately tag a word or phrase in group that has already been tagged, the tag is applied to the word only.

Find words/phrases with a specific tag

To search words or phrases with a specific tag, do the following:

  1. Disable visibility for all tags using the global visibility icon in the tagging panel. Enable visibility for the tag that you want to search.

    For example, to search words/phrases associated with the accessory tag, disable visibility of all tags using the global visibility icon. Then enable visibility for the accessory tag only.

    Note:

    When you drag a visibility box to other visibility boxes, the visibility status of the box is applied to boxes on which it is dragged.

  2. Use the arrow icons in the tagging panel to navigate through the tags in the document. Only the visible tags are traversed.

    Note:

    For a word with multiple tags, the focus stays on the word until all the tags have been traversed. With every click of the arrow button, the focus shifts to the next applied tag in the tagging panel.
