If I have some tags already assigned to headlines and press
C-c C-c Tab
then org mode presents me with a dynamic list of all tags that are used in the file, eg:
Click on a completion to select it. In this buffer, type RET to select the completion near point.
Possible completions are: Tag1 Tag2 Tag3 Tag4 Tag5
When I click on a tag, eg Tag1, immediately the tag list is closed, and any tags that were assigned to the headline previously are replaced by Tag1. I can click and select only 1 tag.
How can I select multiple tags in the tag list, eg how can I select Tag1 and Tag2?
How can I add tags from the tag list to the existing tags that are already attached to the headline, so that the existing tags are not replaced by the tags I select from the tag list?
I can select multiple tags if I predefine tags in the org mode file by using eg:
#+TAGS: Tag4(4) Tag5(5)
The problem with this method is that the list will not show me tags already assigned to headlines in the file eg Tag1 Tag2 Tag3.
I would like to have a list of all tags already assigned in the file, and be able to select multiple tags to assign to a headline.
I have done a lot of searching and watched vids:
and they do show ways to do this, but I cannot duplicate those ways with my emacs. I wonder if it is because I have a different version or setup.
I have tried to thoroughly understand the help page at https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/org/Setting-Tags.html But have had no luck. Sorry I dont understand something obvious.
I do not have helm installed and I understand that this is not needed.
Thanks ahead of time....
