Write Tags to file so that they also can be used on macOS system level

edited July 25, 2018
Brand new user so bear with me. There is a tab to add "Tags" to a document. My question is: are those tags written to the file so that the tags would sync back to macOS system level? Zotero does not seem to do this automatically and I was unable to find any option to write tags to the file manually.

I think this would be a useful feature. In case it does not yet exist, please consider this a feature request.
  • This is not currently possible.

    Is there a place to file this feature request? I would really love to see this functionality.

    You can consider posting here a feature request. I would generally not be optimistic about this particular feature, as file tags are a Mac-specific feature without an analogue on other systems.

    Generally, my recommendation is to switch to using Zotero’s organization features (collections, tags) and search functions to interact with files stored in Zotero, rather than continuing to try to access them directly through Finder. There is also an Alfred workflow to integrate with Zotero if you want to be able to search, for example, using something like Spotlight.
  • Yeah, I understand this feature would be macOS specific and Zotero is cross-platform.

    Using Launchbar (instead of Alfred) but I think there's no specific Zotero support in Launchbar.
