To make your various tags and collection markers easier to use, you'll want to keep them organized in a logical manner. The Tags tab of the Organize Bin has several pre-existing categories for you to use: Favorites, Hidden, People, Events, Other, and Places. There are some subcategories in the People category as well: Family and Friends. To this list you can add as many categories and subcategories as you want. You can even create sub-subcategories.

Tags are gathered together in categories; collections are gathered in groups. Collection markers do not have any pre-existing groups or subgroups, but again, you can add some whenever you want.


Click Tags or Collections Tab

If you want to create a new tag category or subcategory, in the Organizer, click the Tags tab on the Organize Bin. To create a new collections group, click the Collections tab instead.


Although you'll most likely create new categories and groups to organize your tag and collection markers, the categories and groups you'll create in this task are markers in and of themselves, and can be used to organize items in the catalog.


Click New Button


If the Organize Bin is not showing, click the Organize Bin button on the Status bar to display it, or choose Window, Organize Bin from the menu.

To create a new category for tags, click the New button at the top of the Organize Bin and then select New Category or New Sub-Category from the menu that appears. The Create Category or Create Sub-Category dialog box appears.

To create a new group for collections, click the New button at the top of the Organize Bin and then select New Collection Group. The Create Collection Group dialog box appears.


Enter Name

Type a name for the new tag category, tag subcategory, or collections group in the box provided.


Set Options and Click OK


You can drag existing markers on top of a category, subcategory, group, or subgroup marker on the Organize Bin to add that marker to that category or group. See 30 Change a Marker's Category, Group, Name, or Note.

Subcategories, collection groups, and subgroups appear in the Organize Bin in alphabetical order (tag categories appear in the order in which they are added to the list). For example, on the Tags tab, any subcategories you add within the Events category appear in alphabetical order. You can rearrange things more to your liking by dragging and dropping them within the list. To enable manual rearranging, choose Edit, Preferences, Tags and Collections. Then enable the Manual option next to the item you want to manually rearrange, such as Collection Groups.

If you're creating a tag category, select the icon you want to represent the category from those shown in the Category Icon list. You can also change the color that appears at the top of the tags in this category by clicking the Choose Color button, selecting a color from the Color Picker that opens, and clicking OK to return to the Create Category dialog box.

If you're creating a tag subcategory, select the category to which you want to assign it from the Parent Category or Sub-Category list.

If you're creating a collections group, you can make it a subgroup by selecting the existing group to which you want to assign it from the Parent Collection Group list. If you leave this option set to None, the new group will appear on the Organize Bin at the top level with other top level groups.

When you're through setting options, click OK to create the new category, subcategory, group, or subgroup. The new category/group marker appears on the Organize Bin.
