Possible to print out or copy tags?

Hello -

As my tagging system becomes more intricate, I’m wondering if there is a way to print out a list of tags directly from Tropy, or copy tags into a word or text file. I’d like to make sure that I’m creating consistent tags between Tropy and my software for secondary literature.


Hmm, I don’t think there is currently a way to print the tags out of the UI, but it is relatively easy to print out all the tags from your project file. IIRC you are on macOS where SQLite is pre-installed. So you could try the following:

  1. Open Terminal.app
  2. Issue the following command, replacing TPY with the full path to your project’s .tpy file:
    sqlite3 TPY "select name from tags"

This should print a list of all tag names in the given project which you can copy out of the Terminal. Alternatively, you can send the output to a text file (replace TXT with the path to a .txt file to be created):

sqlite3 TPY "select name from tags" > TXT
