Organise tags using Drag and Drop

Pontus Berg


This surely must be an issue for now only me.

I use a system of tags as the basis for my Evernote work. I use the methodology deriving from the ideas in "the secret weapon" (https://thesecretweapon.org/), giving all notes with actions a @who, @when, @where and so on. 

Organising them is key to how I use Evernote, and given that I most of the time just create them and organise them in the hierarchy in a later stage, it's hence also key that I can manage them with ease. This used to be easy. Recently when cleaning up I realised I didn't find a way to do it either in the PC or webclient.

I have finally realised that I *can* drag and drop them to structure if I press the "root tag" in the left menu, and then move the tags in the new search panel that opens,

=> What's the issue with not allowing drag and drop directly in the left panel? That is where it makes sense for me to do it!

I also use a prefix naming standard for organizing tags   
The first character indicates a class of tags; ?Who, -What, @Where, .When, #Project/Tasks    
Hierarchy is reflected in the name; for example -Budget, -Budget-Computer, -Budget-ComputerHardware

Confirmed -  clicking the Tags icon opens the Tags Page   (Mac Legacy)
I can also click View > Tags (Mac Legacy)if I press the "root tag" in the left menu

This is not an issue for me   
I use the sidebar as a navigation tool
