Deleting all tags?

Somehow I have ended up with tons of duplicates, or maybe almost duplicates (maybe same note is tagged different ways?)
I have tried deleting notebooks on all my devices, on my nextcloud account and I still end up with duplicates.
If i delete all "tags" my notebooks will be in tact correct? That is, i will loose the tags but will have the actual notes?
Some duplicate removal or popup "are you sure because you have a very similar note/tag etc" option or something to prevent this would be really handy :slight_smile:
