Find tags in OneNote not finding all tags

I'm using only 3 tags, 2 of them are standard and one of them is custom. When I click Find Tags it's only listing items with one of the standard tags. Why won't it list the other standard tag and the custom tag. Without this function OneNote is of very limited use to me. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Martin1952,

How are you doing?

Please see these links:
http://thepaperlessstudent.blogspot.com/ which says that "find custom tags" is possible

and

http://www.addictivetips.com/microsoft-office/onenote-2010-tagging-guide/

Shows that when you click "find tags" that you have some options, do you have selected:
Group Tags By: Section, and Search "all notebooks", etc? Just wondering if your search is only looking for "standard tags" or "searching only a specific area"?

Hope this helps,
Kevin

It was the second of Kevin's links that helped me solve the problem. It seems that in Tags Summary the Show only unchecked items box default is unchecked and mine was checked. I must have done it accidentaly because I thought the default was checked. Simply unchecking it allowed all tagged items to apear below it. There is an issue that I should point out. If you check the standard To Do tag a red check is shown in the tag, obviously even if you do this accidentally it will show. However if you deliberately or accidentally click on say the Urgent tag or a custom tag I created there is no visible change to the tag. This doesn't seem right to me. If you check it you should see a change to the icon or a chech beside it or something.
