Tag Hierarchy on Anki Desktop

Does a tag hierarchy exist on Anki Desktop natively or do I need to install an add on? If it does, how do I use the tag hierarchy? Thanks!

Since Anki 2.1.41 hierarchical tags are supported natively. You see the tags in the left panel of your card browser. You can drag e.g. the tag “anatomy” onto the tag “medicine”, thus making the tag hierarchy medicine::anatomy. When adding “anatomy” to a new note, typing “ana…” will suggest the anatomy tag within its tag structure.

Thank you so much for the detailed answer. I hadn’t updated but it works perfect on the newest version!

They are supported since 2.1.41, actually :slight_smile:
