Tagging, Color & Star Rating Dialogue box.
« on: November 17, 2022, 01:42:07 PM »
I am running Photo Mechanic version 6, build 6552 on Windows 11.

I somehow opened a dialogue box showing these functions but I'm unable to reproduce it.

It allows for the tagging, star & color rating of individual images while in preview screen.

Does anyone know this function?

You could have opened the Preview window, which allows for Tagging, Star rating and adding a Color label. By default the number keys will add a Color label and Alt-# keys will add a Star rating. The t shortcut key will toggle the Tag checkbox on and off.
If you started with the Preview window opened, then the i shortcut key will open the Metadata (IPTC) Info dialog.  You can apply a Color label, Star rating or Tag the image in this dialog, using the widgets below the thumbnail. 
You might have opened the Image menu which has options to add a Color label, Star rating or a Tag.  I hope this helps.
