    I've made some new Paragraph styles for a current project and I'm having trouble remembering which tag I've assigned to which style. Of course for applying a style I don't need to know this since I can use the Menu, but for editing purposes I do need to be able to see whether I've got the right style applied. In other words, although the *names* of styles can be descriptive, the tags can't.

    I know that I can open Preferences to see which tag is assigned to which style, but is there a quicker way?

    If not, I'd like to suggest considering adding a way to see which style is being applied in a given case. Maybe a tooltip? (Probably not.) Maybe just adding the tag itself to the Menu item, so that pulling down the menu would reveal a list that matches tag to style?

    Just wanted to point out that you *can* have descriptive style names if you want to. You can set them to anything you want.
    There is nothing that prevents you from using tags like "&chapter&" for example, or "!!comment". The ampersands and exclamation marks are of course there to prevent any paragraph that includes these words to be set to the style in question...

    Best, Niklas

    Thanks, Niklas.
    I hadn't thought of that, even though it now seems obvious.
    (I guess I'd fallen into the pattern established by the default tags.)

    If Soulmen show no interest in this matter, perhaps the solution for me is to use descriptive tags for those styles that I don't use frequently enough to remember.

    Cheers

    I think showing the tags next to the style's name in the menu is a good idea. I'll put it on our list :)
