I'm having problems with the tag system. I've imported about 1600 notes from evernote incl. tags. The tags contains capital letters.
If I try to change a list of assigned imported tags on a note and if I only use existing tags (incl. capital letters) I end up loosing all tags upto the last I entered. EG. having a note with a list of tags: Test1, Test2, Test3 and if I change this list to Test1, Test2, Test4 I end up with only the last tag Test4`

The other issue I have is if I add new tags, they are automatically converted to small letter tags like mentioned in #129. However with new tags, creating lists of tags do work (only small letter tags), so the situation seems to differ between imported tags with capital letters and new ones which are automatically converted to small letters.

As I would really like to start using Joplin productively is there a way to convert my current tags with capital letters to small letters without doing that task manually (eg. using sed running agains the md files)?

Ah I missed to mention that I'm using the last version Joplin 1.0.66

Yes there was indeed some issue with the way tags with uppercases were handled. This will be fixed in the next version.
