Summary
To simplify the handling in drawings with a lot of elements, each element is allowed to have one or more tags. A tag is a simple user defined text to mark the element. This tag can be filtered in an user defined filter.

## Properties Dialog¶

Use the AutoCAD/SOFiPLUS-X properties palette (command: _PROPERTIES) to add one or more tags to the element:

• Select one or more elements.
• In the properties palette an additional entry Tags is shown.
• Allready assigned tags are shown as text. This information is not editable.
• To add or modify some tags to the element open a little dialog at the right side of the line.
• To assign an existing tag just check the entry in the lower part of the dialog.
• To define and assign a new tag add the name of the tag in the upper part of the dialog and push the Add button. The new tag is assigned automatically.

## Filter¶

Elements with tags could be filtered via the user-defined filter:

• Define a new user-defined filter.
• Take the entry Tags in the first section.
• In the third line all existing tags are shown.

For the use of user defined filter see Working with the Sidebar.
