Support #+FILETAGS: options

I love the new(ish) tag inheritance features in Beorg!

One additional feature that would be useful to me is if Beorg supported my current #+FILETAGS: options in my org-mode files.

For example, some of my .org files have "#+FILETAGS: @work" at the top, so in org-mode in Emacs, every headline in that file inherits the @work tag.

I'm currently working around this with a saved search that looks for the tag or whether it's in particular files... but it would be great if Beorg supported the FILETAGS option.

Thanks for the suggestion. To be honest I wasn't aware of the FILETAGS option. Currently beorg doesn't interpret any options in Org mode files. I hope to change this at some point as lots of fun stuff can then happen :)

I wanted to follow up to see if #+FILETAGS could be something that could be implemented -- I'm new to beorg, but this would be really helpful.  In the meantime I'm manually tagging individual tasks rather than using file-level inheritance.

Glad to hear it!! 

I think the support for filetag is very cool, but I think, the org-mode #+FILETAGS is not implemented the right way. Typically you add the #+filetags option as:

#+FILETAGS: :tag1:tag2:othertag3:andsoon:

(see in

Thus at the moment such "correct" filetags throw an error. This is especially problematic with org roam, where it is also used to add tags to a note in this way. As I do this nearly on every note, it is not possible to open the note file in beorg anymore

best regards
