2017 - Can't Add Tags to default content in Resource Manager


Using Resource Manager in 2017 SP2, I can only view / add tags to resources that are in my User Folder / Favorites.

For the default content located in the Application folder (Vectorworks Libraries), I can only view tags – I cannot add any of my own tags.

Is this how it is supposed to work?

I think, yes.


If you do a lot of work tagging the app Libraries, these may get overwritten with an update.

I think these should be already tagged useful by VW.

While thinking .... Tags like "useful" "warning", .... could be quite useful for Objects in system Libraries anyway.

So I think that is just about keeping the Tag's database itself in a user folder, instead of writing into the object (?)


Maybe that is already the case ?


And when I test, I can add Tags to library objects of my file only.

Not in Workgroup or User Folder Libraries ?

(Which also all don't show a large preview for me)
