Can you tag talk groups that appear while scanning systems? I get a bunch of TG's that are easily identified but can you edit or make a file with the identified TG's?

edit the DSDPlus.groups file.

As it says, you may edit & save it while DSD+ is running, and it gives you the field by field format of each entry.

Type the TGID tag/name in between the two quotation "" marks at the end of each groups line in the groups file.
"TGID xxx"

OK so I have a bunch of data in my "dsdplus.groups" file.....for example there are about 35 lines from talkgroup "134" but do I have to name EVERY ONE in that series of 134 TG's? In other words can I enter the TGID name ONCE for TG 134?
You sure you opened the DSDPlus.groups and not DSDPlus.radios? And if you're in the right file, are you sure you are in the correct column?

There should be a single entry per TGID per system.

I have a feeling that you're conflating things here, if you want to ID the talk group, you want to be in .groups. If you want to ID specific subscriber units, you need to be in .radios

there can only be one TGID with that number on a system.

One more thing I thought of. Can you set the TGID names in ANOTHER COLOR? All the text is GREEN and it would be cool if the actual name of user appeared in a contrasting easier to see color.

Yes I got it ok, I was looking at the WRONG NUMBER. I set all the ID's and it is working perfectly. I posted again a few seconds ago asking if it is possible to change the color of the TGID names. All text is in green and it would be nice to customize the display. Just change the name of user to a different color.

Yes I was looking at the wrong number, once I saw that I realized my mistake. So I was able to set all the names with no problem.

One more thing I thought of. Can you set the TGID names in ANOTHER COLOR? All the text is GREEN and it would be cool if the actual name of user appeared in a contrasting easier to see color.
Nope, Can't do that..

All text is in green and it would be nice to customize the display. Just change the name of user to a different color.
I have a quick patch for OP25 to do just that, but it won't help us here.
