does it means that the 'tags' refer only to the entire note and you can not add a tag per line/comment ?

Confirmed; tags are applied at the note level5a05d8caeb390_ScreenShot2017-11-10at08_49_22.png.6a02988db84eaa45017fc643aac750f8.png

I do have the option of inserting keywords into the note
These can be located using a text search
I keep a list at the beginning of the document

>>how do you that?

Which item do you need help with?  Also, you'd get more specific help if you identify your platform/device

hi everyone, i need some advise, i would like to take memos fore several books i'm reading

and i want to make myself some note per page, and every note to give tags

what would be the most elegant way to do it

i think opening a new memo for every note is not so useful...

 

If you want your comments by page and tagged by page, then you need a note per page. 

If you want notes per book, you can create a table with columns of Chapter, Page, Comment, MyOmmentTag (your tag for the comment).  You can search globally or within the note for MyCommentTag.  Not the same as a tag in EN, but might help with your set up.  FWIW.

My comments are consolidated in a single note for each book5a06141657f6c_ScreenShot2017-11-10at13_02_54.png.984287bdbddf048d7db8750dedc9b5f9.png
but I see no problem with having multiple notes
For example:     Book: Prince of Tides
                            Book: War and Peace 1
                            Book: War and Peace 2

Sometimes I extract quotes during my reading of a book
These end up as separate notes, tagged appropriately.  
I use note links to cross-reference the quote-notes with the book-note

For example: I would rather see a museum bombed than a book underlined5a060b0866816_ScreenShot2017-11-10at12_23_44.png.6c159fe79b41acb97928d48d6e2114df.png

i need/want to be able making several tags per page

Can you give an actual sample of your use of "several tags per page"

The example I know is a word processing table of contents, with headings as the anchors
It doesn't seem to apply to "notes" from a book reading

attached an example

I would be using a separate note for each book

Can't help with the inline tags other than my keywords suggestion above

thanks

i'' look for another app\program

or i'll use excel...

Just a thought, but I would think about how you want to find things before you make your final decision, whatever app it be.  It's one thing to put the stuff in, it's another thing entirely to get stuff out in a useful and productive fashion.
