    yesterday I went and thoroughly read through the manual again - I
found the command 'mark_tag' which makes a selection out of all
tags, so I assume this could be used to combine tags with ranger

    I don't feel like I'm missing anything specific, rather,  I'd love
to read/see how other people use it. Maybe having tips&tricks
section in the wiki.
    Sometimes, its faster/clearer to use 'find' with xargs to achieve a
certain thing, and I'm 99% sure that the reason for this is that I'm
not using Ranger to the fullest :-)
    If there's a way to use %t with xargs, grep, or sed - that'd be a
great start, tagging files around my projects and subsequently using
these tag groups would be really helpful.

    One additional quick question - where does ranger store info about which
files are tagged?
