Can I merge two tags together?

Yes. Drag and drop the tag you want to merge onto another tag.

Merging tags on the same board

To merge two tags together on the same board, all you need to do is drag the tag that you want to merge onto another tag on your board.

You’ll be asked to confirm that you want to merge all of your highlights. Please note that the tag you’re merging will be deleted, along with any description or comments.

Merging tags on different boards

If the tags you want to merge are on different boards, you’ll need to swap the tag on all of Tag A’s highlights with Tag B, or vice-versa. Follow these step-by-step instructions:

  1. Visit Tag A.
  2. Click the Checkbox on the first highlight to enter selection mode.
  3. Hold Shift and click the last highlight to select all highlights.
  4. Click 5 selected (the number may vary).
  5. Click Swap tag….
  6. Find and select Tag B.

Check out Manage multiple highlights on a tag for more information on how to manage highlights on tags, including copying, moving, and deleting highlights.
