I have an .org file and some headlines have the tag Contact attached to them yet searching for tags (C-c a m) and entering Contact delivers nothing (see attached screenshot). What do I do wrong? Thanks for your help.

  • You can restrict the agenda to the current buffer using key <. Have the cursor in the buffer of interest. Then do C-c a < m Contact RET.

KO, I think that C-c a m works only in Agenda files and the one I searched is not a dedicated agenda file. Anyway (org-match-sparse-tree) which should do the trick delivers more than I want i.e. every Headline no matter which tag it has. Puzzled.
