Instructions Inadequate for Tags

I'm just setting up my account now. I've 6 tags set up but can't for the life of me figure out how to apply them to imported credit card transactions. I tried following these directions:

But the "tag" option is even missing from the register preferences in their example!

When I try adding a tag in the category field, it asks me if I want to make a new category. I don't. I want a tag.

If I edit the transaction, I can finally see a tag column. But it won't let me access it. What am I doing wrong?

I will need to use tags for most of my transactions, so I really need easy access.

Thankyou!

    You need to add the Tag field to every register where you want to use tags in transactions.
    Go into the register. Next to the Balance column title is the Register Columns icon. Click to bring up the list of available columns. Put a checkmark next to Tag. Click Done.
