> Country/France/Normandy/Eure/Gisors
> If I would tag a picture with the "Gisors" town tag, it is coherent if I

> Gisors tag : All my hierarchy is unselect, which is not logical in this

> In an other hand, if I make a mistake and my picture was taken in england
> (yes, I'm really silly), if I uncheck France tag "Normandy/Eure/Gisors"
> stay checked, which is incoherent too (picture can't take place in Gisors

> So it seems to me, this could be really improved by adding an option to

> If I check a tag, parents tags are checked too
> If I uncheck a tag, childs tags are unchecked too

Go to Tags tree view from Caption/tags sidebar, and show op-up menu.
Look "Toggle Auto" option on the bottom. It's not what you want ?
