# Prevent duplicate tagging in Tumblr

I must be really bad at this. I started to type "watches" for a tag and it appeared in the list because I used it before.

Now when I click on it, I get two tags.

How can I get this working without adding the incomplete and the already existing tag ?

This is an intended feature. You're supposed to be able to see "hey, I want that tag too" and click it to add both. The same thing happens when you push tab.

The functionality you really want is to push the down arrow key til you've selected the correct tag, then press enter.

• Ah! So simple. Really don't know why that down arrow key escaped me. – phwd May 25 '11 at 21:25
• :) well it is a little hard to "guess" when you're used to "tab", and then you're second option to "click" isn't the right one either... – Joseph Hansen May 25 '11 at 21:29
