Please tell me that the following statement is false:
If a plugin tag has no TAG_VISIBLE flag, it is not only hidden in the Object Manager (which is what I need to keep the interface from crawling with possibly hundreds of tags per object) but also in the Timeline so that you cannot edit the tracks on the hidden plugin tag.
There is another plugin tag, visible, which collects these and provides an interface but it cannot be used for storing the tracks since GetDDescription() may be adding/removing tags over time. This voids any correlation between the ID set in this tag and the track to which it is supposed to point. I've tried and it results in a mess!
My question, I suppose, is why does hiding the tag (once and for all even) exclude seeing it in other managers such as the Timeline and F-Curve windows?
