Open numeric pad when edit field is clicked

Extract hashtags

When entering the text, hashtags can be created by inserting a "#" in front of the desired characters (e.g. "#mytag"). When the text is saved, the hashtags will be extracted and saved. The hashtags can then be depicted by the View tagging - Bookmarks element. The text can contain as many hashtags as desired.

Show tag suggestions

When text is entered with a hash symbol (#) in front of it, a tooltip will display suggestions based on existing tags. Clicking on this suggestion will insert it as a hashtag.

With this setting, the options "Use TinyMCE" and "Use Markdown editor" cannot be activated on the Options tab. Tag suggestions cannot be displayed in the editors.
