Data Tag - Define Field only working when record is in the default folder


Hello everyone , 

Just wanting to check, 

When making a custom data tag, I was stumped as to why the format and field was showing up as empty in the "define tag field" dialogue. But when using "Link text to record" I could see all my records were there, although they wouldn't actually link despite appearing as though they should.


After some trial and error I discovered that it can only make the link to the record when the record is in the working files default resource browser location. Whenever a record was in a folder it was unable to make the link. However when the link was established it could live in any folder very happily. 


Is this correct behaviour? It seems odd to me but I may have just been staring at it too long.

Thanks in advance,
