How can we improve RefWorks?

Don't automatically import subject headings as tags

Subject headings from Proquest and other databases are automatically imported as "tags." This clutters up the interface, and makes it hard for users to add their own tags.

        I should have clarified - tags attached to references themselves can be deleted: it's the global tag list in the L.H. pane I need to be able to rationalise.

        Strongly seconded - I have many tags which have been automatically imported, most of which are irrelevant to my thesis bibliography and just get in the way, making the tag list very tedious to use: I want to delete the superfluous ones, but am not able to find a way to do that, even singly. Presumably they are kept in a database, and so I would have thought that an implementation of tag deletion within RefWorks should be relatively easy to do.

        Agreed - enhanced ability to delete imported tags would be helpful

        Agreed - having subject headings imported from databases renders them unusable. And there is no bulk delete option!
