Description Wromey 2013-02-11 14:31:26 UTC
PA3 updated 09.02.2013.
I have 100 pictures on my wetab, which I want to tag. So I search for Wien, wich is part of the file name and get corretly 3 pages. I select the pictures on the first page and drag them to "new tag". The naming window pops up, and I give in the tag-name "Wien". The tag is created. I switch to page 2, select the pichtures and drag them to the Wien-tag. They are tagged. I switch to page 3, select and drag. When after a while i deselect the tag, all pictures are shown, when I select it only the pictures of the first two pages are shown.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load 100 pictures on your tablet and select some which fill three pages
2. Try to tag the selected pictures
3. Deselect and select the tag
Actual Results:  
Only the picture of the first two pages are tagged

Expected Results:  
All pictures should have been tagged

This problem seems to be more complex than thought at first.
Actually, it's a combination of two bugs. When tagging the first page of resources, the second page is actually already inadvertently tagged as well due to Bug 314553 .
Afterwards, though, it is not possible to tag any more files until a restart of Files. This happens not only when tagging a full page at once, but I cannot exactly tell when it happens. When tagging a whole page of resources, it always happens.
Try tagging a set of files and then another one and it's likely that tagging will have stopped working.

This is related to Bug 314553 so we'll retest if fixing that one will fix this one as well.

Even though Bug 314553 is fixed, this bug still remains.
Actually, after tagging any file with any tag, tagging reproducibly stops working until I restart Files.
