Tags for quick access and shortcut for tags

Could you please make it possible to create a tag with a keyboard shortcut? Would be great.
Second, at the left and right column of Agenda (Projects and Calendar/Recently/Related) would be enough space for showing the most used tags for quick access to all notes with the tag. Could you do this please?

Simply start with a # simple, followed by your tag, that’s all that’s needed, i.e. #sometag. Same thing with typing an @ for people, i.e. @tom

We have plans for a tag browser, though probably wouldn’t make it something that is shown in the sidebars, we take a less tag-centered approach than some other apps.

A tag browser would definitely be useful or an opt-in setting to view your tags on the sidebar.

Apologies, but I don’t understand what you mean here… Are you suggesting that there is some sort of ‘auto-complete’ for tags? Or a pop-up menu of different tags containing the letters typed? Because this is not what I’m seeing. There is no autocomplete, right? I have to type out the full tag name every time. This is rather a pain. Could we not access the tag list by simply right-clicking, and then just select the desired tag to add it?

Please let me know if there’s a preference / setting I need to switch on somewhere to get my tags to autocomplete — thanks.

That is correct. There is no autocomplete. As for now, the whole tag needs to be typed out. I wish I remembered the thread that someone created a good work around for how he quickly finds them and inserts them. If I find it, I’ll post a link to that thread.

I did find it, but it isn’t for quick entry. It still may be of interest to you I’ll post the link below.

Thanks for the clarification.
So from my perspective, at the moment — without a way to quickly add, select and view tags —Agenda doesn’t really support tagging.
Never mind. I will do without tags for now and hope that this deficiency will be addressed in some future update.
Thanks for your help.
