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.
Tags in omitted scenes are not listed in the Tagging panel.
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:
Enter the name of the tag in the field in the tagging panel.
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:
Word- or phrase-level tag items for available tags are automatically added as scene-level tag items.
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.
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.
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.
(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.
You can tag a word or phrase with more than one tag. Repeat the procedure to add multiple tags to a word or phrase.
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.
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.
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.
Use the arrow icons in the tagging panel to navigate through the tags in the document. Only the visible tags are traversed.
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.
Select the word or phrase. The tags associated with the word or phrase are highlighted in the Tagging panel. Scroll the tagging panel to view the associated tags.
Move your mouse over the word or phrase. The tag information is displayed in the tool tip.
Move the mouse over the word or phrase, press Control, and double-click (Cmd + double-click Mac OS®).
Alternatively, select the word or phrase that has been tagged. Its associated tags are highlighted in the Tagging panel. Click the tag in the tagging panel to remove the tag from the word or phrase.
All manual tags applied to words and phrases are removed. Removing manual tags does not affect the list in the tagging panel.
When you create a schedule from a script containing tags, you can view tagging information by clicking open the Tagging panel in the Schedule view.
