Sub notes or hide information

Sofii papiitas


Hi Evernote team,
I'm a user of your app, which I think is amazing, I'm using it to keep track of all the info I need from my master's degree, so I have tons of information, which I've been sorting in the notebooks, but I was wondering if there is any way to make a sub section or like the note of the note. Maybe something like a content's section, where you are able to click and send you there, maybe to be possible to hide the information and just leave the titles to keep the organization.
Let me give you an example
My main topic is explaining carbohydrates, which subdivide in sugars, starches and fibers. Then sugars divide in monosaccharides, disaccharides, polysaccharides, and non-sacchatide sweeteners. Then in the last case sort a list of sweeteners let's say aspartame, acesulfame-k, neotame, etc... And give a explanation about each of them.
So I've been using the listing dots, but I kinda get lost, so if there was a way to hide the info or make a sub note inside it would be easier to group and find. I attached a SAP picture like an example :D
Thank you so much.
Hope you can create a tool to help. Your app is the best.
Best regards 
Sofi fernandez

This sort of feature has been requested for many years, both in the current version (V10) and the older legacy version. Evernote works best for shorter notes linked together with internal links. In you situation I would create one master note called carbohydrates and then many shorter notes for each of the lowest level sections. It's up to you to decide whether you need notes for things at the intermediate level eg non-saccharide sweeteners as well.

Then create shortcuts to all the notes and put them in the master note. These could be put in a table or indented to give you the structure you want. If you select all the notes and use the blue multiselection box to copy all the note links you can then paste them into a bulleted or numbered list in the master note. The items can then be dragged around and indented into the order you want them. The numbered list re-numbers as you drag them around.

A backlink to the master note will automatically be created in each of the notes you have linked to so it's easy to go back to te master document.

Another advantage of small notes is that you can be much more precise about tagging etc which makes it much easier to find exactly what you are looking for. Searching for aspartame (or even better intitle:aspartame) will take you directly to the information rather then having to wade through a huge note to find it.
