  • Default Retentive Tags

    Is there a setting to make all tags retentive by default? I tend to get in a hurry creating tags and forget to mark them retentive and forget that I didn't intentionally mark them retentive. I'd prefer to have to make a tag not retentive rather than make it retentive.

    No. I recall it's due to there not being enough memory to make every tag retentive.
    Why worry? If you've done the best you can, worrying won't make it any better

      Todd Dice is correct. If you look at P040 "tag database" help topic it has the below note on the retentive memory limits:

      No. This is due to keep a user from reaching the limit described above.

        Out of curiosity why are booleans 1 byte instead of 1 bit?

          As far as CPU memory a Boolean data type is stored in a byte. If writing a value to a Boolean 0 = OFF; < 0 > = ON
