v8 Tagging - how to tag a 'Specific Family Line'
I want to play with name-tag formats for a certain branch of the family.

So, I tried to tag all the descendants on that line with tag 3. I've tried 4 times and can't make that happen. It happily tags her, but no one else, not even her spouse. If I try to tag the descendants of one her children, it tags him/her but not the spouse or kids.

There's 230 descendants. I'd sooo MUCH sooner not do this by hand!

What I'm doing:
Open tools,
open advanced tagging
Select tag #3
select Descendants
select Descendants (includes all)
click OK

I'm back at the Advanced Tagging screen and my options appear to be Close and Help.

And whoever had the cursor is tagged, no one else is.

Yes, Option 1.5 Tagging Options is tic'ed.

Hand-patting requested.



Update: This afternoon I tried selecting the sole spouse. Bingo. In my opinion, that should be a default, not a choice.

A shout-out to Jay Ingalls for that one.
