Tag colors are reverting back to their original colors

Describe the bug
Changing the color of a tag is reverted back to its own color when I change the color of a different tag assigned to the same relation

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Go to a page which has a tag relation
  2. Change the color of one tag
  3. Change the color of another tag to the same relation
  4. You can see the previously changed tag color is reverted to its original color

Expected behavior
A clear and concise description of what you expected to happen.

System Information:

  • OS: Fedora SIlverblue
  • Anytype Version: 0.21.1

Additional context
The tags seems to have a mind of their own :ghost:

It would be great if the color of the tags are also backed up to the cafe node since every time I do a complete sync from the cafe node / with updates, the tag colors seems to be changed from what I change them to. I’d raise a separate request if the team / community feels it should be addressed separately.

Workaround
Assigning the tag colors from a set seems to make them stick

Hi I can see this is marked as resolved but I’m having this problem on the latest version, Windows 11.

Very strange, on windows 10 I could not reproduce the bug :upside_down_face:

Happened a few times today when I was changing colors

Did you have more than one Anytype instance open at that time (PC, mobile)?

No I was only using my computer with windows 11

I don’t think it’s the mobile fault since I did not have Anytype installed on mobile when I tried to experiment with this bug yesterday.

I think it had something to do with pages and sets + the relation tab within the page.

Other than the colors reverting back to the original colors, names reverts to their original names too. In other words, renamed tags wont be saved.

To start fresh,

I tried creating a new tag and a new relation, and they don’t have this rename, color, or deletion problems when you change them in sets.

but the problem occurs (even with new tags/relations) when you started to change the relations from the page.

From there on, I wasn’t able to delete/rename my tags. They (tag B) return back to their original names when you change another tag (tag A) color or name. Vice versa.

There’s something buggy the moment you touch the relations within pages.
