(Archived) Author field

Recommended Posts

I use Evernote to store a lot of PDF articles and so the 'author' field is pretty useful for me. Two limitations though:

1) (which I raised herehttp://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=15608) The ability to edit the author field on a batch of notes at once would save a lot of time when I upload a lot of articles by the same author and want each in a separate note.

2) An auto-complete function for the author field (similar to adding tags) to save typing!

This 2nd idea makes me wonder whether the best solution is to have a set of tags for authors and use those instead - that would solve both of these limitations in fact! Can anyone see any reason why best to continue to use the author field rather than tags?

I guess the main advantage of the separate field is that you could put arbitrary text there without making your tag list look more busy. But if you're just using a small set of Authors, then you could definitely achieve a similar effect with tags.
