Tagging in build

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am a brand new EN user, literally just downloaded it a few days ago and I am working my way through it. My question is this: my tag list looked like exactly what I wanted after I created it, but after I started to apply the tags it seemed the list exploded and some of the tags are now missing. I tried to recreate the missing ones and got a message saying the tag was already in use.

I probably did something wrong, but any advice would be much appreciated.

Click on the "Tags" item in the left panel; that should open up the Tags View (or conversely, ose the menu View / Tags View or Ctrl+Shift+T shortcut key). See whether your tags appear there.

Maybe I did not explain the issue well enough. For instance, I created an Actions tag list and in that list a sub, 01-When.  In the 01-when list I created another sub list, 1-focus, 1-next, 1-someday/maybe.  During my testing, I assigned the 1-focus and 1-next to a few items. When I did that, the tags disappeared from the original created list and appeared  under the main “Tags” heading. Is this normal behavior for EN?

Not that I've ever seen. How are you assigning tags to notes? Via drag/drop? By adding in the note header in the editing panel?

You did say: " I tried to recreate the missing ones and got a message saying the tag was already in use", so I assumed that tags had gone missing.

Not sure, but try syncing right after you add a new tag.  This should ensure the hierarchy of the tag before you assign it to a note.

As a test, move any tags that moved back to their preferred place in your hierarchy, then sync.  Than assign some tags and see if the hierarchy stays.
