Kimberly,

Cool!  I didn't know that about the knot.  That symbol has always just been the command key to me.  But then, Celtic symbolism is definitely not my strong point!  Thanks for teaching me something new.  :-) I guess the design team figured the "+Z" gave it enough context.

Thanks for the explanation. I understand wanting a more "pop culture-y" look, though I personally think it would have come off better in a computer themed type of download. I also think this would have been more immediately recognizable to everyone if it was pictured as if it were on a keyboard key...especially if the PC counterpart image had been included in the download.

And just for reference, the symbol actually *is* a knot, and that's what comes to mind if you are not a MAC user, and that's all you'll find if you search for the image. It's called a Bowen Knot or a Heraldic Knot. When used as a symbol, it can be taken to mean "St. John's Arms" which apparently is used to denote a "place of interest". Swedish MAC users refer to it as the "Ancient Monument Key" for this reason.  That's why I think it really needs the context.  I understand it's a done deal now...just sayin'...

Kimberly--

That symbol is not a Celtic knot--it's the symbol for the "command" key on a Mac keyboard. The tag is a reference to a popular computer shortcut.  Command + Z (or ctrl + Z on windows) is the "undo" keyboard shortcut.  The tag is basically saying you are sorry want to "undo" whatever it was you did. :-) 

The symbol is instantly recognizable to a Mac user, but if you are a windows gal, you probably aren't as familiar with it.  There is a lot of "command z" art out there. You can find fun stuff like "Keep Calm and Command Z" posters and T-shirts.

We wanted this download to have a good variety of styles. Some tags are a more classic in the design and sentiment, but we also wanted some to be a little more "pop culture-y". Sorry if we confused you.  :-)

Also, another strange issue I've found with the Tags for All download is that if I color any of the images Whisper White, and then try to use the Coloring Tool to change the color on part the image, the image won't color. I understand I can't see the white on white in the coloring tool window, but if I go over the image with another color (like black), shouldn't it at least color over the image where I've dragged the color?

I only ask because it really freaks me out...it looks like a celtic cross knot to me, and I would not want to give anyone a tag that basically looks like it would pictorially spell: "knot+Z", which sounds like 'nazi' if you put it together like a pictogram.

Okay, in the Tags for All set, there is some symbol + Z on one tag, and under that part it says "Sorry".  What on earth is that symbol?  I consider myself fairly intelligent and I have no idea what that thing is supposed to be...I cannot imagine giving that tag to someone, not knowing what it actually means. Can you please enlighten us??
