There are several views in which you can tag, un-tag and revise tags in Smarky, Synkmark, Markster or BookMacster, including bulk operations involving multiple tags or bookmarks.

3.7.1  Tags in the Content View (Tags Popover)

In the Content Tab, just below the toolbar, is the Tags button.  Clicking it exposes the Tags Popover, in which you can view and edit tags of the bookmarks which are selected in the Content View.

You can add tags by typing into this popover, dragging tags from the Tags View, or delete tags by selecting one or more and hitting the delete key.

If you have more than one bookmark selected, Tags Popover shows the combined tags (union set) of all of the selected bookmarks.  If you add a new tag, it will be applied to all bookmarks in the selection; similarly for deleting tags.

When typing in multiple tags, separate them with the Tag Delimiter that you have specified in the document’s Settings > General…

By default, it is set to Your Default Tag Delimiter, which in turn is set in Preferences > General.  The idea here is that if you have multiple Bookmarkshelf documents, each document can have a different tag delimiter.

3.7.2  Tags in the Tags View

To the left of the Content View is the Tags View.

The tooltip (the box which you see when you hover the mouse over the Tags View, as in that screenshot), explains with the Tags View is and the short version of two cool things you can do in it.  Here is a longer version…

3.7.3  Tag Filter in the Tags View

At the top left of the Content Tab, the Tag Filter switch filters items in the Main Content View to show only items which have a tag matching those which are selected in the Tags View just below it.  The switch has three settings.

If only one tag is selected, any and all are the same.  In this case, the and settings have the same effect.

3.7.4  Bulk Operations on Tags

To make the same tag changes to many bookmarks

Alternatively, if all of the target bookmarks currently have no tags, or have the same tags in the same order, you may select all of them in the Content and then add or remove tags as desired in the Detail View.

3.7.5  Tags in the Inspector Panel

You can manipulate tags of any single bookmark in the Inspector Panel.  To get the Inspector Panel, hit the Inspector button at the right edge of the toolbar, or type  ⇧⌘I.
