Types of Tags
There are two types of Tags - event and interval. An interval tag requires a hot key to start the interval and a hot key to stop the interval. The duration of the Tag is defined by the duration between when the start and end hot keys are pressed. An event Tag creates a Tag that has a predetermined and defined duration before and after when the hot key is pressed to make up the event Tag.
You can also edit shortcut settings via the tag area by double clicking on a tag and selecting the settings you want to update (See below)
