We now have a "Rename tag on all resources" function but shouldn't we also have a "Delete tag on all resources" function as well?  I have some tags I want to delete from everywhere they occur.  I tried using the Rename function with an empty name, but it doesn't accept that. It seems that the two functions would be very similar to implement.  Why hasn't the delete function been added?

Was this new in Beta 6? It does not seem to be present in 5.2a Beta 6 Mac.

Right-click on a tag.

It's been there since at least beta 5 for the Windows version, but it wasn't mentioned in the release notes.

It's hard to know what to consider as a work in progress when they don't mention it in the notes.

Had missed that. Thanks Todd. Would like to have "Rename tag on selected resources", although the present capability would be useful in correcting typos in tags.

This should be fixed in 5.2b Beta 1.

It is.  I think.  The first time I did it it only appeared to delete the tag from the current resource.  I waited a long time to see if it was just slow, but when I filtered on the tag, it was still applied.  So I tried deleting it again (same tag, different resource), and it worked properly that time (removed from all resources).  I then added a new tag to a bunch of resources and successfully deleted it from all.  Not sure what happened that first time.  But I put it here in case others experience it.

Happy, I am.

Yes! Just used the "Remove tag from all resources" feature. Thanks, Logos.
