We have created Tags and Flags so that you can easily categorise, organise and highlight important nodes or Value LINQsets in your sketch. You can now add a Tag and turn on a Flag against any node in your sketch, highlighting that there is something important about them, drawing attention to them or reminding yourself where to continue your work when you return to LINQ. The new Visualisation Panel controls Flag visibility and provides insight into nodes that have Tags assigned to them.
You create Tags by typing them into the Tags property against a selected node or Value LINQset. If your Tag already exists, it will be shown to you and you will be able to select it. You can create new Tags or add existing Tags to an individual node or multiple nodes by selecting from the Canvas or in the Find Panel. Multiple tags can be created at once by separating them with a comma.
If you click on a tag label, LINQ will show you the nodes with this tag in this sketch. You can select a node description to find that node on the canvas.
If you close the visualisation panel flags will remain on your sketch. To remove flags, uncheck the box next to a tag. Flags travel with your Sketch as you share it internally or externally so others can see the visualisations that you have added.
Tags are saved with the sketch and can be copied and pasted with nodes across sketches.
You can access Flags by clicking the eye in the panel toggle bar to the left. Here you are able to control whether they are visible or not and the colour that they display:
The flag colour can also be changed by clicking the colour left of the tag and selecting from the 5 provided options.
You can visualise up to 5 Flags per sketch at a time. If you are already visualising 5 flags on a sketch you will need to deselect one if you want to visualise another.
When hovering over a flag in the canvas a window will pop up to show the label for each tag individually.
Hover on flags next to a minimised LINQset to see how many nodes are tagged and what the labels are.
