AutoTag tag editor is running very slow

Overview

When a template contains a large number of tags you may notice the performance of the tag editor begin to degrade.  To remedy this problem, AutoTag comes with a few option you can disable to regain performance.

Resolution

  • "Text also" - this instructs AutoTag to read tags that are written in full text as well as field modes.
  • "Prior text" - this instructs AutoTag to read all tags that come before a current tag when working actively with the tag editor in the document.


1) From Microsoft Word/Excel/PowerPoint to to the AutoTag menu and select Options under the Options section.

3) Uncheck under the "Read Tags" section these options
   a) "Text also" - this instructs AutoTag to read tags that are written in full text as well as field modes.
   b) "Prior text" - this instructs AutoTag to read all tags that come before a current tag when working actively with the tag editor in the document.

With these options unchecked AutoTag will only see tags in field mode and will do not perform any additional processing to find full text tags tags. With this change you will not be able to use the tag builder to edit tags in text mode.
