Weird 10.11.6 issue
Posted by: mikebw
Date: January 12, 2018 11:15AM
I can select and tag any number of items in the Finder with a color(s), but if I want to remove the tags from multiple items I can only choose up to 10 at a time. If I select 11 or more, then it doesn't recognize that the tags are there. Anyone else able to reproduce this issue?

There seem to be several "weird" issues or changes with El Capitan. I still have Snow Leopard on an old iMac and it looks and acts so much better. Maybe I'm just used to it, but I don't like the new flat look of OS X.

No, I can't. I just selected 16 items and gave them a tag. Then removed it - no problem on my 10.11.6 system

How are you tagging them?

I just did/undid tags on 30 files via Command+Option+i and via Select-All followed by Control+Click.

...

Probably not relevant, but I had a client with a problem tagging files on a SMB server awhile back. Turned out that the special characters in some file names screwed it up. Connecting via AFP fixed it and ultimately A Better Finder Rename provided the long-term fix.

Probably a dead topic at this point, but I tag them by selecting in the Finder, then ctrl-click and choose the color from the menu that appears. I also try to remove the tag using the same method, but again, with more than 10 items selected the menu does not indicate the previously chosen tag color.

If I do cmd-opt-i on the same group then that window DOES show the tag correctly, and I am able to remove it.

Seems like the ctrl-click method is just limited to 10 items.
