Ordering side list items?

Go to solution Solved by Mike P,

Recommended Posts

In the previous app, I got into the habit of ordering sidelist items in order of priority with space after the ['] Character eg.:

( after choosing a tag eg 'shopping')

'       apples

'    pears

' kiwi

In the new app, this no longer works.

Is there an alternative i could use? 

Just numbering is more labour intensive. Adding/deleting spaces is real easy on the fly.

It apears that EN (now) strips out spaces at the beginning of a tag name. You could just use another character (e.g -, _ , =, +)


I'm not really sure why you don't use the inbuilt tag hierarchy.

Thanks Mike

If you mean adding more tags to my existing 50+ tags I'm not so sure.

It would mean substituting tags as I revise my note seniority

It's really easy to remove spaces in the title prefix as I've become accustomed to.

I'll tinker with alternatives to spaces as you suggest

Nesting tags is a feature that is better supported since some releases, when it was added to search / filter on the mobile devices.

The advantage compared to your home-brew method is that you can search including child tags, or excluding them.

Say you have a tag "Bank", and under it banks "A", "B" and "C". You can search for "Bank" and include A,B and C without a need to explicitly name them in the tag search / filter, by including child tags.

I think it is better to build a hierarchy in a way that is supported by EN, not by working around it. You invest the same effort reorganizing tags as with putting extra characters into your tags - but only one method will give you a return in advanced functionality.
