How can I create a new label with the same name as an existing label but a different parent

Post by barneagle » 24 Apr 17 20:59

If I have an existing label for London with England as parent, how can I create a separate label for London with Ontario as parent? If I type London in the label assignment input box I'm only offered the existing label and there is no "Create New" option.

Click on the catalog label (left side of your screen where all the catalog labels are) where you wish to add the item, right click - add item

You can even add twice the same label name under the same parent, if you wish...

Cheers,
Michael

Thanks. Silly me. I thought I could do that but couldn't see how to display the labels on the left. I now remember they are called Categories!

I accomplish this by misspelling London, i.e. Londot and then I can change the spelling in the next window ;-)

I regularly do the essentially the same and write "Londonx" and then simply delete the "x".
