Hi Murugesan, thanks for taking the time to write.

Currently there is no way to edit existing tags, you can delete them though! Once a tag is deleted from all of the captures it is applied to, it will automatically be removed as a tagging option from the Editor the next time you exit/reopen Snagit and the Editor (e.g. when you reset). If you want to the removed the tag immediately, after deleting the tag(s) from the capture, simply File > Exit Snagit and the Editor and reopen them.

As far as deleting goes, here are some workflows that will hopefully assist.

How to Delete a Tag from a Capture Workflow:
1. Select desired capture in Editor's Recent Tray.
2. Click Tag.
3. Click/select the tag you wish to delete.
4. Press the delete key on your keyboard.

If a tag has been applied to multiple captures, you will need to delete the tag from all of the captures. Here's a workflow for how to handle this scenario.

How to Delete a Tag Series via the Library Workflow:
1. In Editor, click the 'Library' button.
2. Click the 'Tags' section to open it.
3. Click/select your desired tag.
4. Right mouse click in the image area > click 'Select All'.
5. Click the 'Tag' button.
6. Click/select the tag you wish to delete.
7. Press the delete key on your keyboard.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
