I use Emacs org-mode tags with the "group tag" Tags Hierarchy and groups with #+TAGS: syntax for a specific file, without overriding org-tag-alist/org-tag-persistent-alist. List of tags can be seen in the variable org-current-tag-alist. Tags with "group tag" is a tree structure. The standard mini buffer org-mode for setting tags (C-c C-q) is too inconvenient. Using autocomplete (ivy+counsel) shows tags well, but doesn't show tags hierarchy.

My questions:

  1. Is there a tool that will show tags in the form of a tree in a separate buffer? Like some modules show the directory/file structure of a project?
  2. Is it possible to configure the autocomplete tools: helm/ivy+counsel/selectrum/(any other) to display a tags tree and autocomplete?
  • ISTR seeing the exact same question (either here or in SO) previously. IIRC, nobody answered, so I tend to believe that the answer to both questions is no, But I don't know for sure.
