Tag Within Note

Recommended Posts

  • Level 5

Tags are assigned to the entire note, not a section of a note.


For my few lengthy notes, I use the following method:

I use keywords (actually a special code) to find specific sections in a note. My codes all start with an arbitrary number (7777) followed by a letter.


If I am looking for a specific quotation by Isaac Asimov, I will search for: 7777q Asimov


I can remember all my search codes, but just to be safe, I also store them in an Evernote note.

Also, in my opinion, Evernote is much more powerful when using many small notes rather than a few monster notes, so I don't have to rely on this search code method often.

Nope, no way to do that, Evernote's format, being based on XHTML, does support HTML anchors, but no client has tools to take advantage of that, and nothing in their UIs either.

Just to clarify - I place the 7777q code underneath the actual quotation which could many pages deep into the note.

The search jumps to that place in the note (no scrolling needed)


I also use a small size font and a light grey text color, so it is difficult to see. It's not obvious, but Evernote can still find it. See an example below:
