Extropy 68 Posted October 6, 2013 Share Posted October 6, 2013 Have a "tag mode" in the search box, triggered by typing, say "tag:" or ctrl-t that immediately shows a list of the tags you can select. The filter should update as you type, limiting the tags shown to possible partial matches, just like when you add tags to a note, but with one difference – after you select a tag, it shows you a further list of tags that the selected one has in common in other notes. Once you select a tag, by scrolling the list with arrows and hitting return, clicking on it, completing it, etc. the tag should be highlighted (like when you tag a note), but then the list should be updated to show the tags on all the other notes that have the selected tags. For example: I type ctrl-t and a list of all the tags pops up.I type "Tra", and see the following on the listTravelTrainsTransylvania I select Travel and continue, typing "Ro", and the list shows the other tags from all notes tagged "Travel":RomeRoanokeRostocketc. This would let me quickly drill down to the notes that I have specifically tagged. I often don't want to see all the notes that contain the keywords, but just the ones I have tagged that way. Typing "tag:" before every tag, and remembering to add quotes if the tag has a space in it, etc. takes time and discourages me from doing searches that way. Even worse is moving down to the "add search option" drop-down and adding tags that way. Link to comment
