Filtering "Tag is Empty" doesn't contain objects even though their tag is empty

What’s The Bug?

while if you select tag in filter, select has none of & select all the tags it works perfectly fine but Filtering “Tag is Empty” doesn’t contain objects even though their tag is empty. And this is happening for all sets and collections

How To Reproduce It

Idk how to reproduce it, it just happened for me & I can’t even seem to reproduce it again

Image or Video

The Expected Behavior

Tag is empty filtering should contain objects being tagged empty

But that is OK so!
Don’t think the filter does filter things out.
Better think so: the filter manages what the View should show.

If your choice is, “Tag is empty” than it shows only Objects with empty Tag.

please watch the screen recording, I meant the same thing, the filter says “tag is empty” but the view is missing objects even though their tag is empty (they have no tags). Thier tag is empty so they should be seen in that view

you can see in the video that both red & yellow objects have no tag but only red objects are shown in the “tag is empty” view

Oh, yes, I see now …
You’re right!

I tested it for myself but couldn’t reproduce it.
I have 19 Objects without any Tag among about 100 with Tags.
In the filter setting “Tag is empty” I see exactly the 19 Objects without any Tag.

No idea why you have such a strange result.

  • That’s a case for the developers to to have a view.

@Shafin can you try Ctrl-r (to restart Anytype), and see if the issue persists?
