Bug Description

There's currently no way to unset the color of a tag. That's quite a big usability issue.

I pushed a branch that fixes this--you can reset a tags color by right clicking a tag in the tag sidebar and selecting "Reset Color."

I'm new to this, so hopefully I didn't do anything horribly wrong. :)

Hi Matthew, it's always fun to have new contributor :-)

You didn't do anything wrong but, personally, I would not put that option in the right click menu directly. I would prefer to have it in the color choosing dialog (see also bug #320264 ). But this is only my opinion, it could be discussed.

Anyway, I'm really glad that someone work on this bug, welcome :-)

>Lionel I agree with you but maybe before having a full tag properties editor (allowing for instance, to select colors or icons) I think we could have this quick fix to reset colors.

I'd like to contribute more, but I figured that this would be a simple enough issue to deal with while getting familiar with the code. I agree, though, that it would be better placed in a tag editor dialog. Until then I hope this is good enough. :)

If we agree that it's a temporary fix then I think it's OK.

Maybe we could combine this with the #TODO in the code stating that there should be a separate tag editor, like how we have a task editor.
