Help Needed for Custom Columns Created From other Columns

I need some help with creating a couple of columns based on other columns, if it's possible.

I have a tags-column with different tags in it. Can I create a custom column based on that but only with specific tags in it?

Like if the first column has M/M or F/F the column created from that is automatically Same-Sex Relationship.

Why burden the processing with on the fly populating every launch?

Do a query for your tags, select all, use bulk mode MDE to set a static (normal type tag) in you Tag like column.
Or make that query into a VL

Thanks, that would work.

Do you know if it's possible to make exceptions to a tag in user categories?

not tags: <da tag>
Remember: you can also control the evaluation order by putting some terms in ( )

(tags: A or tags:B) and not tags:C

If I add the Tag F/M to a category but don't want certain relationships included is that possible?

@Tanjamuse - A User Category only includes the values you have added to it, viz:

Click image for larger version

Name:	1.jpg
Views:	65
Size:	42.6 KB
ID:	166019

If you want something to show in the book list, you could create an appropriate icon, e.g. ⚥-⚥, and use an icon-rule to add it to the Relationships column.

Ctrl+Win+C puts your monitor into monochrome, I just discovered
