Manage Tags

In a project, declare tags using the Rules language.

There is no special place for tag declaration, you can put them in any rule file (with extension .cr) and you can distribute them across multiple files as long as all those files are then imported in a main file with the IMPORT statement.

For example the is suggested, because it's the place where Studio also puts the declaration of sample templates and fields when you create a project from scratch and, by default, the file contains an IMPORT statement that includes it at compile time. You can obviously delete or modify the tag declarations depending on your needs.
