How to edit cell tags in Jupyter Lab?

It looks like Jupyer Notebook has some builtin support for viewing and editing cell metadata, but I can’t work out how to do this in Jupyter Lab. Some tools make use of these tags for producing reports or presentations such as nbconvert, or as in my current situation motivating this question: https://github.com/voila-dashboards/voila-reveal

Anyone have any ideas for editing cell metadata easily from within Jupyter Lab?

Ahhh I worked it out! There’s a metadata editor in the sidebar:

Thank you for posting your solution! Also my metadata editor was strangely on the right side of my screen for anyone else who might have the same set-up.

The editor was moved to the right side in JupyterLab 3: JupyterLab Changelog — JupyterLab 3.0.1 documentation

You can right-click on the icon and move it to the left side if you prefer it there.
