This is a bug fix to the existing (and great!) macro. I found in certain cases the macro would not correctly list out 'unchecked' (or checked) tags, because of a logic error. If the To Do tag was the last tag in the paragraph it would be OK, but it would not work otherwise. Previously the 'completed' status was only checked on the last tag. I created a $completed variable which looks in the available tags for a "To Do" tag and its completed status. This is used to decide if the paragraph should be included or not.

Added an option to find paragraphs that have at least one of the specified tags (as opposed to having all of the specified tags at the same time)

December 25, 2016 (6ED659) - Omer Atay
This macro can now search up to three tags to find paragraphs that have all of the given tags. Also the tag name is now free form text box so that custom tags or tags in other languages can be searched.

December 23, 2016 (FEFE91) - Omer Atay
Updated to look for every tag on a paragraph in case it has multiple tags. Previously it only used the first tag on a paragraph.

October 27, 2016 (E53965) - Omer Atay
Updated with two new options: Sort by containing page vs. tag creation date, and filter by all, checked or unchecked tags only. The results are grouped under page or tag creation date based on sort by value.

June 20, 2016 (4308FE) - Omer Atay
Re-written with the new Macro Language to take advantage of cleaner syntax and performance improvements

These versions are no longer supported:

Would it be possible to have an option to avoid dim tags while creating the tag summary page?
I write to do action items in different project pages and then create a summary each day. To avoid duplication of tags, I dim tags on daily page. If I use this macro on the next day, it creates summary for even the dim tags as well as original to do tags.

I can only get this macro to work for one tag (to do) it will not work for any other tags.
Is this the intent? Have I misunderstood? I thought would gather a list for any tag?
Please and thank you

Would be nice if the search could be isolated to the section group. Rather than have multiple notebooks I use section groups. The Current Section filter searches all the section groups and is not helpful
