It seems an unexpected user experience that you can add a tag to a file with UIDocumentBrowserViewController or the Files app from the Share sheet. Why would you use this then there is a separate Tag command in the menu? What does tagging have to do with sharing?

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open PDF Viewer ( or the Files app and find a file somewhere.
2. Long press the file

Expected Results:
To not be confused why I’m given the option to tag a file I chose to share.

Actual Results:
You can tag a file from the share sheet even though there’s a Tag command right next to Share in the menu.


If this problem was resolved then rdar://36248346 would be resolved as the share sheet could be standard.
