    I fully agree with the OP - I took it for granted that this would have been provided and spent time playing around with single quotes and double quotes to try to get it to work. I am compiling quotations and key phrases and concepts from the writings of a particular author, not all of my intended tags are single words. It really is not very tidy to have to add - or _ between words that belong together and act as a unit. I find it strange that the concept of a tag - a qualifier is reduced to a single word. There are many words that are separate but are found together to create one concept and are incorrect if made into one word. I think this is a great shame, it really diminishes the software for my application - not sure if I will be able to make it work in a way that will not be a painful niggle as the OP calls it. Sorry to seem ungrateful - its free software after all, I just find it a shame that flexibility in the way people think and use semantic tokens has not been reflected in the code by the decision to treat a space as a separator rather than just another character.

    safety harness
    bass guitar
    spinal curvature
    blood poisoning
    primary school

    Some users will see the above list as double filters but other people especially specialists may see them as single concepts - a band short of a bass player will not see him as a type of guitarist who chooses to play bass - they will see him as a bass guitarist, someone who quite possibly cannot play guitar at all.

    The documentation already tells us to use commas if entering multiple tags on one line, from the point of view of the documentation it would seem perfectly reasonable to interpret a space as a character not a separator which has already been defined as comma.
