To log tagged directories from the DM FW use Alt-Log, [T]agged directories, [B]ranch.

The Ctrl-* key has never been defined to work either in the File Mode (FM) or Directory Mode (DM), so it's clearly not been implemented. This is basically because the key commands in DM are designed to perform the same operations on directories as they do on files in the FM. Yet there is no similar operation in FM as you are expecting here in DM.

I agree it would be handy to have a single key to perform this operation, and Ctrl-* makes sense. However, I think this would be the first and only key command that would exist only in the DM.
