Tag System

Tags are how you organize common types of resources. Tags can be used with brushes, gradients, patterns, and even brush tips. Tags are usually selected from a drop-down menu above the resources. Selecting a tag will filter all of the resources by that tag. Selecting the tag of "All" will show all resources. Krita comes installed with a few default tags. You can create and edit your own as well. The tags are managed in a similar way across the different types of resources.

You can use tags together with the Pop-up Palette for increased productivity.
