Currently the management of favorite and ignored tags is clunky and error-prone. Deletion of several tags at once requires an unnecessary amount of random mouse movement, which could be accomplished instead via keyboard actions.
I propose the following mutually independent changes:
The tags are sorted in a list, where tags can be browsed with the arrow keys and selected individually or in groups by toggling the ‘manage’ state of a tag with Space, a ^-click or a ⌘-click, e.g. like the country selection list here.
Alternatively the ‘manage’ state could be toggled by Space or a simple left click.
Actions such as removal or rearrangement of the selected tags would be performed via a menu.
Tags can be rearranged by drag-and-drop.
Tags can be sorted via a separate menu.
Tags can be edited in plain text, separated by newlines, commas or spaces.
There should be a notice that wildcards (
*) are accepted in tags.
